The Trusted Lightweight Fill Material.
Foam-Control Geofoam is engineered to give you the greatest possible control for your project application: from design and timelines, to materials and costs.
The advantages to using Foam-Control Geofoam include:
- Predictable material behavior
- Manufactured to meet ASTM D6817
- Variety of Types to meet specific project requirements
- Super lightweight compared to other fills
- Inert in long-term burial conditions, no leachates
Other fill materials such as foamed concrete, waste tires, soil, woodchips, wood fiber, etc., have higher densities, are variable in their makeup and are not engineered, due to field execution variables. They also have limitations in handling and can be weather sensitive, thus requiring staged construction and/or preloading, surcharging and draining, etc. Foam-Control Geofoam maximizes onsite installation efficiency. Material can arrive at the job site prefabricated and ready to place. It is easily inventoried and handled. Installation is not delayed by weather.

Geofoam is used to form tiered seating in locations such as auditoriums, movie theaters, and gymnasiums.
Geofoam is used as backfill behind retaining walls to greatly reduce lateral pressures.
Geofoam is used to replace heavy fill materials to reduce settlement.
Geofoam is used to safely support highway loading without over-stressing the underlying soils and to reduce differential movement.
Geofoam is used to create topography and reduce loads on underlying structures and services.
Geofoam is used to reduce the load on underlying compressible soils to minimize settlement.
Fill loading is reduced by using Geofoam instead of heavier fill materials.
Geofoam is used for slope stabilization and improves slope stability.
Geofoam infill is simple to handle on site, making it easy to adjust building floor elevations.
