EPS Geofoam Applications: Airport Runway and Taxiways
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Geofoam can be used for all types of road and bridge construction projects, including bridge abutments and supporting foundations. EPS Geofoam is such a versatile material, in fact, that it can even be used in airport construction jobs as well. Similar to road construction, engineers often rely on EPS Geofoam to replace unsuitable soils underneath airport runways and taxiways, without worrying about overloading the underlying sub-grade materials or adding additional load, as other, heavier traditional fillers would.
EPS Geofoam can be used not only in airport runway rehabilitation projects, but also in new runway and taxiway construction as well. Want to learn more about how EPS Geofoam helps runway construction? Read our EPS Geofoam brochure or contact one of our EPS product specialists today!
