EPS Geofoam is a cellular plastic material that is strong, but has very low density (1% of traditional earth materials.) It is a manufactured in block form and meets ASTM D6817, “Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Geofoam.”
EPS Geofoam is produced in block form and is easily positioned at the work site. Standards sizes:
- 3’ (914 mm) thickness
- 4’ (1.2 m) widths
- 8’ (2.4 m) lengths
- Other sizes and fabrication can be provided for an additional fee.
Ready to Use
EPS Geofoam maximizes onsite installation efficiency: material arrives ready to place, no weather delays.
All our manufacturing sources for EPS Geofoam meets or exceeds the requirements of ASTM D6817, “Standard Specification for Rigid, Cellular Polystyrene Geofoam.”
For most applications, long-term design loads should not exceed the linear elastic range of EPS Geofoam. Combined live and dead load stresses should not exceed the compressive resistance at 1% strain.
