Construction Industry Finds Success with ACH Foam Technologies’ EPS Geofoam in Diverse Applications
ACH Technologies’ Foam-Control EPS Geofoam is best known for its use on roadway and embankment projects. An engineered lightweight material made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam with high compressive strengths and predictable material performance, Foam-Control EPS Geofoam has become an indispensable material for civil infrastructure. The reasons for its popularity are countless: the material has high compressive resistance, it reduces lateral and bearing loads, and saves labor and project costs. At about one-percent the weight of traditional earth materials, this cellular plastic material has a high compressive resistance up to 18.6 psi at 1% deformation.
