Where Experience, Innovation and Manufacturing Come Together.

What is Geofoam?

Geofoam is a lightweight fill in compliance with ASTM D6817 that gives you control over your geotechnical project. 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.

How To Use GeoFoam

Geofoam is a term that was adopted by the geotechnical industry to describe a class of light weight fill made primarily from polymeric foams, such as expanded extruded and expanded molded polystyrene.

Expanded Molded Polystyrene foam, or EPS is the most widely used Geofoam in geotechnical applications today.

EPS Geofoam in its most basic use:

  1. Reduces vertical stresses on underlying soils and substrates, and
  2. Reduces lateral stresses to vertical surface planes, both structural or non-structural.

The reason why EPS Geofoam works exceptionally well to reduce vertical stresses is due to the fact that it is a “super” light weight fill. In the various type ranges of EPS Geofoam that are most commonly use in geotechnical applications, EPS Geofoam’s weight is less than 1 to 3% of traditional earth materials.

EPS Geofoam is an Engineered and factory produced product and thus has known and reliable physical properties

Geofoam Applications

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

Reduce vertical stress on pipes and other sensitive utilities. Prevent potential issues, such as collapses, by using geofoam instead of regular soil to reduce the overall weight on any utility.

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.

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

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.
