EXPANDING FOAM FOR UNDERPINNING HOUSES AND OTHER STRUCTURES
Expanding Foam* for Underpinning and Raising and Re-levelling Homes
Far from the common concept of 'foam' Uretek injected structural resins set extremely hard and strong. The toughest Uretek formulae of injected resin can support in excess of 1,000 tonnes per square metre!
The Uretek Method is the modern, very advanced technology for rectifying structural problems caused by ground subsidence.
Uretek does this by injecting expanding structural resins into foundation ground. Invented in Finland 30 years ago and now proven throughout the developed world, the Method is unique and patented.
UNDERPINNING BY URETEK EXPANDING 'FOAM' RESIN OFFERS YOU MANY ADVANTAGES:
- Fast! Uretek re-levels houses taking between just half a day and two days in most cases.
- Occupants don’t need to move out.
- Very little furniture needs to be moved.
- There’s no excavation. No concrete. No water . No mess.
- Injected Uretek structural resin is harmless to the environment. It’s inert, won’t break down and won’t leach into the water table.
* Expanding resins used this way are far from the common idea of ‘foams’, because when injected and contained by soils and the structure above them, they become extremely strong; whereas the term ‘foam’ can suggest weakness.
When required Uretek resin formulae can be used to produce huge lifting power even greater than 10,000 kPa.
URETEK EXPANDING 'FOAM' RESIN HAS MANY APPLICATIONS
The Uretek Method of injecting expanding structural resin foam is now widely used for many re-levelling and re-support applications as well as underpinning buildings.
Re-levelling and re-support applications applications include:
- road pavement
- road anchors
- bridge approach slabs
- culverts, pipelines & manholes
- airport runways
- factory and warehouse floors
- railway bridges and platforms
- dockside facilities.
