Dec , The present invention is defined by a synthetic plastic (EPS) concrete form having a pair of oppositely disposed parallel panels made from expanded polystyrene, or EPS, which is a closed cell, rigid, lightweight, cellular plastic, generally having a basic white texture that is molded into various shapes by
Mar , ,, discloses a folded plate panel using boards made of wood Veneers are attached to one or both sides of the ridges of the folded plate The hollow spaces thus created are filled with sound and heat insulating materials Lightweight concrete and foamed concrete can be used as insulation filling
Apr , It would also be expected to have better thermal insulation properties than plain Jane concrete, and of course there s the green angle EPS is tough to recycle, and any that gets cast into concrete objects doesn t end up in landfills (at least not immediately) And while there is rather a lot of general discussion
Dec , Greater than million pounds of foam were recycled in , according to the most recent EPS Recycling Record from the Alliance of Foam Product Packaging Recyclers Foam is roughly air, that makes it exceptionally light weight A foot truckload of loosened foam items weighs only
Aug , K tect Sustainable Building Systems is an insulated light weight structural building material similar to Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) The structural panel consists of expanded polystyrene (EPS) which provides insulation, sound dampening and structure, and light weight steel framing providing strength.
Aug , The form slabs are constituted by an insulating material having a strength sufficient to withstand the hydrostatic pressure of the concrete to be cast between the slabs The slabs preferably are formed with a high density foamed synthetic resin such as expanded polystyrene, extruded polystyrene foam,
It has long been desirable to produce cellular expanded resin bodies from thermoset resins in such manner that the expansion may be controlled to provide for any Prefabricated wall sections composed of metal panels, bracing and fasteners were successfully insulated by foaming the present compositions therein.
May , A system and method for securing an insulated concrete wall form to a bracing structure such as a scaffolding frame to keep the form straight and The side panels are preferably made of expanded polystyrene and are arranged in spaced parallel relationship with their inner surfaces facing each other.
Jul , The composite materials can be used, for instance, for heat and acoustic insulation on aircraft, spacecraft, and maritime ships in place of currently used foam panels and other foam products The materials of the invention can also be used in building construction with their combination of light weight,
The invention also provides a method for manufacturing a reusable insulating reusable concrete forming device that facilitates fast curing of poured concrete In the preferred embodiment of the invention, however, the form liner is formed of low density expanded polystyrene or polyurethane foam for greater economy.
Panels, such as polystyrene boards, are received in channels in the H shaped and U shaped lengths to retain the wall panels in a spaced apart relationship The panel assemblies preferably include panels formed of a rigid, lightweight, inexpensive material such as expanded or extruded polymer foam inserted into
Nov , A thermal packaging system using a single phase change material (PCM) part in liquid and part in solid form to confine the temperature of the product within a This permits light weight packaging with the maintenance of temperatures in narrow, preselected ranges over extended periods of time A phase
The foam can in principle be any foam, e.g thermoplastic foams such as expanded polystyrene (EPS best known brand Styrofoam), polyurethane foam, stucco profiles, flat blocks lightweight building blocks, as thermal insulation material, as acoustically insulating and fire retarding plaster and for construction of
WO discloses a lightweight cementitious mixture containing by volume to cement, to expanded polystyrene particles to expanded mineral particles and water sufficient shows a cross sectional view of a concrete composite pre formed tilt up insulated panel according to the invention .
May , For example, manufacturing a molded panel fire door that meets current fire protection requirements generally requires using a mold There are several Preferably, the porous layer is a foam sheet comprised of a thermoplastic polymer, such as expanded polystyrene, having a density of at least pcf.
Jan , h) Expanded polystyrene balls filings, i) Marble powder, j) Coconut shingles, k) Inorganic pigment, I) Wax emulsion US Patent B suggests use of lightweight cementitiuous materials for composite boards and partitions such as insulating panels Mason bond based on use of
The invention comprises a method of forming a concrete structure or object The method comprises detecting the temperature of a quantity of curing concrete and selectively adding heat to the curing concrete, so that the temperature of the curing concrete follows a predetermined temperature profile during at least a portion
Dec , A lightweight, highly insulative panel comprising a gas envelope enclosing an expandable and flexible baffle means, wherein A said gas envelope means comprises a single, folded sheet or a two sheet polymeric film joined at the edge and having first and second gas envelope faces and B said baffle
May , Temperature stabilizing cargo compartment, including a freeze and heat barrier, for transport container constructed with thermal resistant materials used for construction of cold chain containers including but not limited to fiberglass, expanded polystyrene (or EPS), and other foams and polymers alone.
Jun , The web wires are arranged in predetermined directions relative to the wire grid mats, and the insulating body is held at a predetermined distance from as polystyrene or polyurethane foam, foam materials based on rubber and caoutchouc, lightweight concrete, such as autoclave or aerated concrete,
