PSPE Webinar | Ultra-Lightweight Foamed Glass Aggregate
January 19 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Join PSPE for their first webinar of 2021!
Ultra-Lightweight Foamed Glass Aggregate: Applications and Case Studies
Ultra-Lightweight Foamed Glass Aggregate (UL-FGA) is a lightweight fill alternative (<15 pcf dry, bulk density) that is made from 100% recycled glass. UL-FGA is a safe and versatile material that can be used for load reduction over soft soils, structures, and utilities or as an insulation material. One half of this presentation will focus on application areas for UL-FGA and case studies related to State DOT projects, resiliency work, piers, parks, and building construction. The other half of this presentation will cover the engineering properties that should be considered when designing with foamed glass aggregate and how the product is manufactured.
