Rebar is an integral component of every ICF project. Nudura® systems are compatible with traditional rebar, as well as Helix® Micro Rebar.
Helix® Micro Rebar
ICC-approved and proven in thousands of structures, Helix® Micro Rebar for ICF projects lowers the cost of construction and speeds up the assembly of ICF walls, reducing the need to install rebar during the process. The Helix® Micro Rebar combination of high tensile steel and superior anchorage, provided by its patented twisted geometry, increases concrete’s tensile strength, modulus of rupture and splitting tensile strength. Unlike rebar, mesh and fibers, Helix® Micro Rebar reinforcement works before the concrete fails and is the only reinforcement approved to replace structural reinforcement in concrete with a simple design method.
Helix® Micro Rebar concrete reinforcement is added at the ready-mix plant or on-site directly to the concrete mix, reducing costs and saving valuable time.
Proven in the Field
- Every 10,000 sq. ft. of rebar replaced with Helix® Micro Rebar saves one full day of construction
- Using Micro Rebar allows contractors to simplify operations, dramatically reducing project costs
- When compared to traditional rebar, Helix® Micro Rebar can increase fatigue resistance by up to 300% and the flexural strength by up to 33%
- Micro Rebar has been certified by the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) and Uniform Evaluation Service (IAPMO-ES)
