What is CICABLOC® and what are the sizes of the CICABLOC® and the middle attachments?
CICABLOC® is the first folding formwork block that weighs only 2.5 kg. This product is modular, lightweight, ecological and economical. What's more, CICABLOC® effectively helps prevent musculoskeletal injury (that account for 80% of recognized occupational diseases in France.) Made from recycled synthetic material, this product respects the environment while demonstrating the same characteristics as a reinforced concrete wall. CICABLOC® displays excellent mechanical properties and can stand up to all kinds of weather. It's durable and rot-resistant. Comprised of two sides joined by folding hinges, CICABLOC® is 80% lighter than regular formwork blocks, consumes 3 times less storage space.

What is the raw material used ?
Here are the possible raw material that can be used for the CICABLOC® - PVC - ABS - PEHD - Compound polywood type : natural fibers + PP
What is the impact on lock of CICABLOC® is the pressure is applied on its wall?, What is the maximum impact or force CICABLOC® can withstand.
With a regular concrete filled from 2.5m heigh, the applied internal pressure on the Cicabloc® skin is 67500 Pa
The Cicabloc panels are submitted to a pressure of 67500 Pa (that is 8110N per panel)
The hinges are submitted to a traction force of 2700 N (8 110 N for the 3 hinges)
What is the material to be used in the first two rows of the CICABLOC® ?
There are different possibilities:
Earth concrete with 4 to 6 % of lime
Pebbles with 4 to 6% of lime
Can we colour the CICABLOC®, if yes than what type of paint is to be used ?
The CICABLOC® can be painted , but the type of paint depends on the raw material used to manufacture the blocks.
