The company distributes an ICF building product that creates energy-efficient structures that have the added benefit of being both fire and wind resistant. Nudura is an ICF building technology that consists of thick polystyrene forms filled with concrete. Walls built with ICF technology are airtight, which helps slash utility costs. The forms can help eliminate the air leakage through the walls up to 80 percent in a house. The walls also have a high thermal mass, which shields the home's interior from outdoor temperature extremes, reducing peak and total heating and cooling needs.
