BLUBLOC ACHIEVES ICC APPROVALS
BluBloc, a Portland, Oregon, ICF block company, has achieved approval the from International Code Council approval. Their block is made from 85 percent recycled ground Styrofoam and mixed with 15 percent portland cement, which is then formed into building blocks.
The company produces and sells a cementitious “stay in place” concrete form that has been approved and given an ICC code approval. This six-figure cost of all tests done and getting this approval allows BluBloc to sell its block into most areas of North America. This will allow everyone working with the company’s block to have a much easier process with planning departments and building inspectors.
Getting the International Code Council approval will provide more opportunities for the industry to utilize BluBloc’s block for all types of projects. The ICC-ES evaluation report provides third-party verification that the product meets International Residential Code. The comprehensive report is available at iccsafe.org.
