Foamit’s low bulk density and high friction angle makes it possible to significantly reduce the loads on structures.

The earth load is a fraction of that compared to conventional gravel fill. In this case, the benefit to the structure can be, for example, that the amount of longitudinal reinforcement needed is reduced or that lightweight retaining wall constructions reduce the frequency of buttresses needed.

In addition, the transmission of structure during the work will be reduced, reducing the need for piles to prevent additional load or lateral load piles to remedy poor stability caused by the earth load.
