Recycled Content

Reward’s insulating concrete form products contain recycled content and can contribute to the Recycled Content credit.  The Reward plastic tie inserts are manufactured from 100% pre-consumer recycled first generation polypropylene plastic.  One half (50%) of the calculated pre-consumer amount is included in the total value of recycled content for a project. The calculations and amount of recycled content that the iForm contributes is shown below.

For example, the 11” iForm tie weight is 188 grams

  • 100%, (188 grams) is pre-consumer recycled content
  • 1.5 ties per square foot
    • 282 grams per square foot recycled content
  • Foam Weight: 288 grams/square foot
  • Total System: 570 grams/square foot
  • Cost of System: $3.18/square foot
  • Value of Recycled Content per Square Foot (282/570)($3.18)(50%) = 0.79
  • % of product value recycled content $0.79/$3.18
