Single component soil stabilizer is excellent for solidifying unstable soils such as peats and other loose organics, flowing sands or inadequately compacted backfill.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Loose, unstable soils are a frequent cause of settlement of both structural and non-structural concrete, such as machinery bases, footings, slab floors and roadways.
Previously, cement-based grout injection was the only option for stabilizing soils in place. The mess and heavy equipment associated with this work is often prohibitively expensive or not possible inside of finished structures without significant interruption to use.
Concrete Jack’s single component soil stabilizer resin is placed through small pipes, which can be installed without heavy equipment, even inside of finished spaces, with minimal disruption to normal use. The soil stabilizer reacts with water already in the existing soil, or catalyst which may be added at the time of stabilization, and blends with the existing soil to create a hard, plasticized substrate. "Single component soil stabilizer is excellent for solidifying unstable soils such as peats and other loose organics, flowing sands or inadequately compacted backfill prior to high density polyurethane injection to lift the affected structures sitting on the unstable soils," says Preston Roberts, owner of Concrete Jack.
