Concrete Insulation Systems (CIS) is the world-wide supplier of Blucore™ low-conductivity thermal plastic ties for insulated concrete sandwich wall construction. Designed specifically for use in site-cast tilt-up and plant precast sandwich wall panel applications, the connectors provide a fast, efficient, cost effective method for integrally insulating concrete walls for commercial and residential buildings. Blucore ties enable a contractor to take advantage of the speed and benefits of sandwich wall construction while reducing the cost of the total system due as Blucore products are priced to be the lowest in the market.
Walls built with the CIS products feature a substantially higher overall R-value than other wall systems, due to the high mass of concrete which can store significant amounts of thermal energy and delay heat transfer. This means far lower energy costs for you.
CIS systems features a core of rigid polystyrene insulation sandwiched between two layers of concrete – all joined by high strength fiber composite connectors. The result is a system that minimizes moisture condensation and therefore the chance for mold or mildew growth.
