GeoFoam is a high performance expanded polystyrene (EPS) fill material specifically designed for civil engineering and commercial building construction. Its remarkable strength to weight ratio makes it the ideal choice for absorbing heavy structural and mechanical loads and reducing underlying soil stresses which in turn helps to stabilize roads, steep embankments, bridge abutments and sensitive below ground pipe work. It is also a highly versatile material that can be easily used as a quick and east cost saving method for concrete form work or weight reduction on foundations. Its uses are endless.
GeoFoam is made as blocks from EPS beads that have been expanded and bonded together under heat and pressure to produce a high performance construction material with a unique set of structural properties such as;-
- Exceptional strength to weight ratio
- Resistance to water absorption (Substantially reduced the problems of leaching)
- Resistant to insect, bacterial and fungal attack
- Safe and simple to handle
Geofoam has isotropic physical properties which mean that the physical characteristics of the material are the same in all directions- not all materials provide this feature. This superior characteristic ensures the durability , performance and longevity of Geofoam and has seen its popularity grow as increasing numbers of civil engineers and construction specifiers recognise its performance and cost saving benefits.
