Geofoam construcion at Carousel mall,Syracuse

Geofoam refers to block or planar rigid cellular foam polymeric material used in geotechnical engineering applications. Geofoam has very low density, good insulation, low hydraulic conductivity as well as strength and deformation properties that complement soil behavior.

Geofoam has been used successfully in different applications over a period of more than 25 years. Unless otherwise stated, research results and application histories presented at this web site refer to expandable polystyrene (EPS) as geofoam.
