Expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam has been used throughout the world for over 30 years in applications where ultra-lightweight fill material has been specified for:
STYRO-FLEX EPS Geofoam provides cost-effective solutions where conventional construction methods have failed or shown substandard performance. Unlike traditional engineering and construction practices that work to resist the forces of nature, geofoam is designed to work with them. Geofoam's success derives from the fact that it is often more cost-effective to reduce the forces acting on a structure or foundation soil than it is to reinforce them to withstand the forces that would exist without geofoam substitution.
STYRO-FLEX EPS Geofoam is a versatile material that provides innovative solutions to many common, and not so common, geotechnical challenges. A cost-effective alternative to traditional construction practices, EPS geofoam has documented benefits in the following applications:
Note: Other engineered applications may also be appropriate for STYRO-FLEX EPS Geofoam.
