Uses: Perform Wall® Panels are used as permanent form work for structural concrete walls in buildings of any type of construction.
Description: Perform Wall® Panels are hollow core forms comprised of a mixture of polystyrene beads, Portland Cement, admixtures and water; containing approximately 85% by volume of expanded polystyrene beads with a density of between 20 and 24 pcf. A Perform Wall® Panel has a compressive strength of ≥ 56 psi and a tensile strength of ≥ 43 psi. The expansion of a Perform Wall® Panel is the same as standard concrete (.0018 inch/ft.)
Concrete fill: Normal weight concrete with ¾ inch maximum aggregate size and a minimum compressive strength of 2500 psi at 28 days.
Reinforcement: Deformed steel reinforcement bars with a minimum yield stress of 40 ksi complying with ASTM A 615.
Structural design: Structural analysis and design of the concrete fill, steel reinforcement, and waterproofing is prepared in accordance with Building Codes.
