Ultra-lightweight aggregate provides solutions for the challenges of today’s infrastructure projects. Foamed glass aggregate is ideal for projects that require fill to be placed over soft compressible soils or over areas with underground utilities. Large embankments can be built with low net surcharge due to the low unit weight and high friction angle of UL-FGA.
• Lightweight fill over compressible soils and/or utilities
• Insulating fills for frost susceptible soils
• Resiliency projects requiring fill on soft soil
• Reduced excavation for soil balancing
• Less soil removal and disposal
• Potential to stay out of the water table
