It is a resistant cellular plastic material with a very low density (1% of the common sand for fillings).
It is made in block shape and it follows the rule ASTM D6817 (standard specification for rigid material, cellular Geosystem® polystyrene)..
It is available in different kinds of density to provide control over the structural integrity, cost and effectiveness of the system.
The information provided is considered convenient, precise and reliable.
Foam-Control EPS Geosystem® project should be design by a professional engineer.
The engineering or project specifications should be checked to determine the law ASTM D6817 necessary kind for the conditions of the project.
Follow or overcome the requirement of the law ASTM D6817, ¨Standard Specification for rigid, cellular polystyrene Geosystem¨. Foam-Control EPS is monitored by the quality control department UL LLC.
Termite, fungi and mold resistance.
It has been proved that the foam plastics have infected with termite under certain exposition conditions. Foam-Control EPS con Perform Guard® provides termite resistance. The literature of Foam-Control EPS with perform guard can be checked in order to get more information. Foam-Control EPS Geofoam does not provide any nutrient value to plants and animals.
Storing and placement.
Foam-Control EPS Geosystem® does not have any kind of change in a short period of time under any kind of climate conditions. Long exposition to sun may cause yellowing and a little fragility of the surface because of the ultraviolet light. This has just a little effect on mechanical properties. If the blocks are stored outdoors for a long period of time, it is recommended to cover them with an opaque polyethylene cover, canvas or any similar material.
Los bloques de Foam-Control EPS Geosystem® blocks should have a counterweight to avoid being displaced by wind, or high water levels in the storage and placement process.
Foam-Control EPS Geosystem® licensees offer a guaranteed product which assures the physical properties of the material.
