Elastizell EF

Elastizell Engineered Fill:


A Range of Geotechnical Fill

ELASTIZELL EF Applications

Geotechnical applications of ELASTIZELL EF are as broad as the designer's imagination. ELASTIZELL EF has a typical density of 25 pcf. Although it is only 1/4 the weight, it is considerably stronger than compacted soil. Six common applications include the following:

  1. Bridge Approach Fills / Fills Between Retaining Walls

  2. Roadway Fills / Load Balancing / Landslip Repair Fills

  3. Weight Reducing Fills / Culvert Fills / Lightweight Levee Structures

  4. Foundation Fills / Landscaping and Plaza Fills

  5. Void Fills / Pipeline Fills / Mine Fills

  6. Pressure Reducing Fills / Storage Silo Fills

General Advantages of ELASTIZELL EF

  • ELASTIZELL EF is designed for the specific site and soil conditions of each project.

  • ELASTIZELL EF is customized with different densities and strengths as required by the specific application.

  • ELASTIZELL EF is a load-reducing material over poor soils. Example: For each 1’ of existing soil removed, 4’ of ELASTIZELL EF may be added without increasing the load.

  • ELASTIZELL EF flows easily into all spaces eliminating potential voids.

  • ELASTIZELL EF is easily excavated.

  • Initial costs are competitive and life (maintenance) costs are low.

  • Elastizell Corporation of America offers technical support and recommendations.

Elastizell EF is Environmentally Friendly:

Elastizell EF is a 100% cementitious material and is as friendly as other concrete structures.

Cost Effective and Time Saving:

Elastizell EF is a proven and permanent solution. Speed of installation, reduced excavation, reduced fill volume, and permanence contribute to its cost effectiveness.

Because Elastizell EF is cast-in-place, traffic can often be maintained, thus minimizing traffic interruption. Compaction of standard lightweight fills often leads to time-delaying surprises as underlying soils are disturbed causing potential for unexpected settlements. Elastizell EF does not require compaction; minimized excavation depths mean less soil disruption.
