Use of expanded polystyrene EPS in Systems of Drainage of Water of Land

Another of the common jobs in the use of the expanded polystyrene EPS is in the systems of water drainage of a field, such as sports fields, parks, or on surfaces with turf, when the groundwater level is so high that plants and trees can not grow.

Also when the drainage is poor and the soil remains soaked after a rain and is not suitable to play. The water can be drained by means of a network of steps between the grains of expanded polystyrene EPS using a special quality of the material called “sintering”. Also, its flexibility, makes this material is used in the area of civil engineering not only in increasing numbers, but also are developing new applications, as is the case of the plates of drainage.

The EPS expanded polystyrene drainage plates are clearly porous plates of a thickness of between 5 and 25 cm, which are obtained with a very small density (12 kg3) and have a permeability to water of 10 to 12 liters per m3 per second. It is a material especially developed for the sector of expanded polystyrene EPS for elevations of the construction or renovation of a work on the ground weak, as for example tennis courts, parking lots, fields, partially paved, floors of stables and riding tracks, indoor fields, artificial grass and other comparable applications.

Another advantage of expanded polystyrene is the achievement of an excellent pressure distribution in subsoil that is generally soft like peat and dredging waste.
