About EPS Geofoam Insulation

Geofoam is a closed cell foam made from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) to be used as an alternative to traditional fills for geotechnical applications. Geofoam is 50 times lighter when compared to traditional fills with similar compressive strengths making it an attractive alternative for void fill below parking lots, roads, overpasses, embankments, etc.

Geofoam can be used on weak or soft soils eliminating the need to reach bedrock or to reduce the size of an embankment allowing for more usable space. It minimizes the settlement of soil along with reduced maintenance and installation cost reductions.

Why Use EPS Geofoam?

Light and Strong

Light and Strong

EPS Geofoam has high strength to density ratio with 1-2% density of soil with equivalent compressive strength.

Predictable Performance

Predictable Performance

Has stable and consistent composition giving engineers the ability to select more specific performance requirements.

Easy to Install

Easy to Install

Can be installed without the need for heavy machinery and tools reducing installation overhead.

Reduced Construction Time

Reduced Construction Time

Geofoam can be installed during any weather conditions either during the day or night.

Environmentally Friendly

Environmentally Friendly

Geofoam is inert, it does not break down and does not spread to surrounding soil contaminating it. Alternatively, it can also be dug up and reused.
