A bit about Durisol Block...

All Durisol blocks are made from a proprietary cement-bonded wood fiber material that has only natural ingredients. ICF is composed of specially graded recycled waste wood (100% clean, natural softwood lumber). This wood is first chipped into wood fibre . It is then mineralized and bonded together with Portland cement. This Durisol material is then molded into the many shapes that comprise our full range of cement-bonded wood fiber reinforced ICF concrete forms.

Durisol cement-bonded wood fiber insulated concrete forms are porous, lightweight and very durable. Durisol does not rot nor decay. The insulated concrete forms are also vermin, termite and insect proof and will not support fungus growth. Durisol ICF forms are environmentally safe, do not contain nor emit any toxic elements, and are fully recyclable. Durisol block contains no plastic, foams or polystyrenes.

Durisol wood concrete insulated forms are truly a green and healthy product. These environmentally friendly ICF forms use 80 % recycled material; softwood aggregates, by-products of the lumber industry. While diverting material from the waste stream, Durisol are careful not to use post-consumer waste or recycled demolition materials. This ensures that Durisol only use the highest quality materials with no potential for incorporating toxic or other unhealthy ingredients from a questionable wood supply.

As time goes by and with the successful completion of more and more Green and Sustainable projects, we at The Lime Plaster Company continue to notice the increasing number of familiar old materials being used in our construction industry. One of these materials is a product called Durisol. Durisol blocks are a pre-cast Cement/Wood chip block which contain only natural ingredients. They are composed of specially graded recycled waste wood which is chipped into wood fiber which is then mineralized and bonded with cement. It is then formed into a variety of shapes that comprise Durisol's range of reinforced forms for your next green building project.

With a track record of over 70 years and a history of use all over the world and in a variety of climates we are excited to work with this material. With proper installation, both Lime and Clay Plasters are the perfect finish for Durisol blocks which offer a completely natural and unique alternative to drywall and paint. Lime stucco is a great material to use over the Durisol blocks and with our special blend and reinforcement process we find great results everytime.
