Infrastructure Rehabilitation with Polyurethane
Statewide’s no excavation solutions for infrastructure rehabilitation minimize downtime and extend infrastructure system lifecycles. Our polyurethane injection service addresses the many factors that contribute to infrastructure degradation such as soil settlement, voids, inflow and infiltration issues, and poorly compacted soil.
Polyurethane injection is a fast and effective way to repair sinking roadways, culverts, manholes, utility vaults, and waterways. In one application, our polyurethane solution simultaneously fills voids, densifies soils, and seals any leaking joints and cracks in pipes.
Benefits of Infrastructure Rehabilitation with Polyurethane:
How Polyurethane Works for Waterway Infrastructure Rehabilitation
Once injected, the polyurethane aggressively seeks out voids, like how water seeks the path of least resistance. After a few short minutes, the polymer reacts and begins to expand throughout the voids and the weak points in the soil. The polyurethane then begins to use expansive pressure to find the joint separations or cracks.
Polyurethane is injected into the void through the pipe
Injections are made through 5/8′ holes that are drilled through the pipe or from the surface.
Polyurethane begins to expand, packing the voids and weak soils
Once injected, the polyurethane travels throughout the voids and expands up to 25 times its original volume through the soil.
Once the void is filled, polyurethane packs and seals the joints
After filling voids, the polyurethane continues to expand, packing and sealing the joints. The polyurethane cures to 95% capacity within 25 minutes.
Why Our Polyurethane Infrastructure Rehabilitation solutions work.
Polyurethane is an excellent solution for rehabilitating infrastructure, such as roadways, sewers, lateral lines, manholes, and water control structures. The polyurethane is a fast and environmentally safe solution that helps stabilize soils and and seal joints. This process is a powerful tool that gives public works managers a swiss army knife for extending the life of their infrastructure.
Our polymer injection application is a no excavation rocking slab stabilization solution, allowing for minimal impact to your structure. Our project footprint is minimal, requiring a small trailer, a hose running from the trailer, and small 5/8″ holes that are drilled through the structure to give us access to drive our rods to target locations and inject our high-density polyurethane.
We use polyurethanes that are light-weight, reducing added weight to the area. This is a major advantage because often times treatment is required because a structure’s weight is too much for the geology of the area.
Our polymers set up to 95% capacity within 15 minutes, unlike other solutions which require 24-48 hours and ideal soil conditions. After 15 minutes, the material can be driven on and take on heavy loads
Our polymers are environmentally inert and have no impact to the environment or groundwater.
Not only is our process the fastest and most effective foundation and slab lifting application, but it is the most cost-effective too.
