Geo Technical Applications
Geofoam – is closed cell expanded polystyrene normally used as a lightweight fill material in larger earth structures, reducing loads imposed on adjacent and underlying soils that are incapable of supporting transferred loads. Geofoam provides ready and inexpensive solutions to many geotechnical and engineering challenges.
G-TEC is manufactured from inert closed cell expanded polystyrene (EPS) that has been elasticized for use in geo-technical applications. The resulting extended range of flexibility can increase design safety factors for retaining walls, foundation walls, buried pipe, integral abutments and other structures from earth pressures, expansive soils, freeze/thaw, surge loads and seismic activity.
