Geofoam is an EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) block that has been used as a geotechnical material since 1960. The weight of geofoam is approximately 1% of the weight of the soil and 10% of the weight of other lightweight alternative fill materials. As an extremely lightweight soil filler, geofoam can reduce the load on the soil or structures beneath it. In addition to being a very lightweight soil filler, the use of geofoam is also highly advantageous in terms of time and cost of work. Geofoam can be cut to the desired volume design and is easy to install in the field. Geofoam used as a soil filler must meet the geofoam standards set by ASTM D-6817.
