Foam-Control EPS Geofoam is a geotechnical product used in fill applications where a lightweight material is required to reduce stresses on underlying soils or lateral pressures to retaining walls, bridge abutments or foundations.
EPS Geofoam has been used in engineering and geotechnical applications—specifically Geofoam transportation applications worldwide for more than 30 years. Foam-Control EPS Geofoam is a cellular plastic material that is strong, but has a very low weight – 1 percent of traditional earth materials. EPS Geofoam is produced in block form and is easily positioned at the work site. Foam-Control EPS Geofoam is unaffected by normally occurring weather at the time of installation and will retain its physical properties under engineered conditions of use.
Benefits of EPS Geofoam
Predictable material behavior
Manufactured to meet ASTM D6817
Variety of Types to meet specific project requirements
