What is Geofoam?

The EPS Industry Alliance defines geofoam as the lightweight fill for construction on soft ground in addition to having several other uses. The material is made up of expanded polystyrene (EPS) beads and manufactured into large, lightweight blocks that vary in size. Geofoam is surprisingly strong and durable, despite its lightweight composition. Because of the ability to provide stability to unstable soil conditions, geofoam blocks can be used across a number of building and construction industries including swimming pool construction, roofs and rooftop gardens, infrastructure (including bridges, embankments, parking garages, plaza decks), underground utilities, and more.
