Foam Lite Concrete

Foam Lite Industries makes extremely lightweight concrete. Our concretes can be up to 88% lighter than traditional concretes. How? We use expanded polystyrene (similar to small Styrofoam ® balls) as aggregate in place of sand and stone. Concrete using expanded polystyrene (eps) is known as epscrete or eps concrete. The ASTM define lightweight concretes as having density ranges from 60 to 100 pounds per cubic foot (pcf). Foam Lite concretes are classed as super lightweight concretes since the upper density range of these concretes is usually less than 60 pcf (as low as 18 pcf).

Example Uses:

  • Artificial or synthetic stone and rock
  • Building panels
  • Cast or hand formed architectural elements
  • Free or hand formed statuary/sculpture
  • Insulated walls and roof panels
  • Sculpture blanks for hand or mechanical carving
  • Theme structures
  • Underground pipe encasement
  • Walls and fences with Bas reliefs
  • Water features and waterfalls
  • What your imagination might see

Today, manufacturers, contractors, builders, artisans, and individuals use Foam Lite concretes for buildings, homes, walls, water features, architectural elements, statuary, theme structures, insulating infill for standard concrete block, and green build applications. New uses for Foam Lite concretes are being developed all time.
