Durisol woodcrete ICF was introduced to the international construction industry in the 1940s.
The first ICF, Durisol, was developed in Belgium in 1937 by the Swiss nationals August Schnell and Alex Bosshard (following on from a Dutch patent registered in 1932.) It was developed following the creation of a unique, natural treatment process that allowed raw wood fibre to be bonded with Portland cement. The original Ecobrix-UK stay-in-place concrete wall formwork system serviced the building industry in post-war Europe, at a time when other natural resources were scarce and traditional building methods were not possible or cost-effective.
Durisol woodcrete ICF was introduced to the UK in 2005.
In 2023, Durisol UK was acquired by Ecobrix-UK.
Ecobrix-UK now operates worldwide as a manufacturer of cement-bonded wood fibre products. We manufacture at our factory in Caerphilly, Wales, and sell our woodcrete ICF wall form units throughout the UK and Ireland.
We supply self-builders, house developers, and social housing providers for a wide variety of build projects. Please browse our Featured Projects to see some of the buildings that have been constructed with Ecobrix-UK woodcrete ICF.
Our sales and support team are all experienced in the construction industry. They are on hand throughout each building project to support even the most novice of builders and ensure a successful build.
