Jablite is the UK's largest producer of EPS products for insulation and civil engineering applications

Fillmaster

Overview

Jablite Fillmaster is often specified to replace traditional fill materials in civil engineering projects. Using traditional fill materials can cause unacceptable vertical or horizontal stresses in weak underlying soils or against structures.

These stresses can be reduced by specifying Jablite Fillmaster, a lightweight fill available in a range of grades to meet the required compression performance. Fillmaster is also used for temporary access solutions, sheet pile infill panels and secant guide wall and other concrete void formers.

Key Benefits
  • Excellent compression properties
  • High-strength-to-weight ratio
  • Lightweight
  • Resistant to moisture
  • Durable
  • Inhibits water absorption
  • Contains flame retardant additive
  • Manufactured from EPS (expanded polystyrene)
  • EPS has an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification
