What is Geofoam?

Geofoam is a lightweight fill in compliance with ASTM D6817 that gives you control over your geotechnical project. Foam-Control Geofoam is engineered to give you the greatest possible control for your project application: from design and timelines, to materials and costs, and — ultimately — control over your results.

It is a cellular plastic material that is strong, but has very low density (1% of traditional earth materials.) It is manufactured in block form and meets ASTM D6817, “Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Geofoam.” EPS Geofoam is available in a range of Types to provide control of structural integrity and cost effectiveness.

Below is a brief explanation about how Geofoam can be used.

Geofoam Applications

Can be used as backfill behind retaining walls to greatly reduce lateral pressures as well as preventing settlement.

Reduces vertical stresses on pipes and other sensitive utilities. Reducing the weight on top of a utility by using geofoam instead of a typical soil prevents utilities from potential issues, such as collapses.

Used to reduce loads on underlying structures and services.

Can be used as a compensating foundation to reduce the load on underlying compressible soils and minimize building settlement along with potential bearing capacity problems.

Can be used to form tiered seating. The high compressive resistance and light weight of geofoam make it well suited to both new construction and renovation projects. Geofoam is a cost-effective, durable, and time saving solution for stadium seating.

Side Hills

Can be used for side hill stabilization and repair in both soil and rock side hills.

Light Weight Roads

Used to replace compressible soils or in place of heavy fill materials to reduce settlement.

can be used to create topography without adding
significant load to underlying structures and services. Some examples of this application include creating roof gardens for urban buildings.
