Geofoam

Home / Geofoam

This is a geotechnical material made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) which helps distribute the weight load of adjacent and underlying soils and structures. Due to the earth materials being heavy, inducing settlement, instability and even lateral pressures, geofoam can be used to reduce axial loads on weaker sub-soils and reducing/eliminating lateral loads on abutments and foundations. EPS geofoam is amongst the most versatile lightweight materials available, much lighter than Sand or Siporex blocks.

Geofoam is a replacement material for Siporex, AAC, Light weight block, Soil etc. These materials are generally used to fill space to match the floor level or increase it to the required height. Geofoam’s main usage comes as a land filling material that is very time and cost friendly as compared to other similar products. Drytech geofoam is incombustible expanded polystyrene that offers a high compression strength.

It comes in a standard dimension of 4 x 1 x 1.2 m, but can be provided in required sized along with various densities. Advantages of geofoam include:

  • Less manpower required
  • Predictable engineered performance
  • Installation in various weather conditions
  • Maximized installation efficiency
  • Lesser cost
  • Quicker turnaround time and
  • An ecofriendly solution to release pressure from under heavy loads
Applications include making steps for auditoriums, cinemas and landings; to raise the floor of kitchens, bathrooms and balconies and, to relieve stress from under a structure (i.e. bridge, tunnel).
