EPS Geofoam Applications: Bridge Underfill


The many applications of Cellofoam's expanded polystyrene (EPS) Geofoam include its use in construction projects. Among these is its use in bridge construction, specifically as bridge underfill. It is the perfect material to use when you need support for a properly designed bridge.
Its lightweight nature adds very little load to underlying grounds and in some instances provides a zero net gain to loads. It is 1% the weight of soil and lighter than traditional fills. However, while it is lightweight, EPS Geofoam is surprisingly strong. It can be produced in a variety of densities that provide a wide range of compressive strength and R-values.

Additional Benefits


Using EPS Geofoam comes with environmental benefits. For instance, its lightweight nature also makes it good for the environment because it takes less fuel to transport to construction sites. Using less fuel leads to reduced greenhouse gas emissions. It is 100% recyclable, as well and can be dug up decades later and reused.

In the event that an existing bridge is no longer structurally sound or capable of carrying required traffic loads, expanded polystyrene Geofoam infill can help support the span and transfer traffic load safely to the foundation or underlying soil.
