RMAX GeoFoam® is a high performance expanded polystyrene (EPS) fill material specifically designed for civil engineering and commercial building construction. Its remarkable strength-to- weight ratio makes it the ideal choice for absorbing heavy structural and mechanical loads and reducing underlying soil stresses which in turn helps to stabilise roads, steep embankments, bridge abutments and sensitive below ground pipe work. It is also a highly versatile material that can be easily used as a quick and easy cost-saving method for concrete form-work or weight reduction on foundations. Its uses in civil construction are endless.
The cellular structure of RMAX GeoFoam® helps to absorb and dissipate crush loads and it’s cellular structure results in Isotropic physical properties - the physical properties are the same in all directions.
RMAX GeoFoam® is made as blocks from EPS beads that have been expanded and bonded together under heat and pressure to produce a high performance construction material with a unique set of structural properties such as;
- Exceptional strength-to-weight ratio
- Resistance to water absorption (substantially reduces the problems of leaching)
- Unattractiveness to insect, bacterial and fungal attack
- Safe and simple to handle
RMAX GeoFoam® has Isotropic physical properties which means that the physical characteristics of the material are the same in all directions – not all materials provide this feature.
These superior characteristics ensure the durability, performance and longevity of RMAX GeoFoam® and has seen its popularity grow as increasing numbers of civil engineers and construction specifiers recognise its performance and cost saving benefits.
In simple terms RMAX GeoFoam® is your complete high performance fill solution.
