There comes a time when you need to lift a concrete highway, building, or warehouse floor because of settlement problems. We can do this using our two-step system. We first make sure the sub-grade is consolidated. We do this by filling in the voids and loosely compact the soil. We can choose to do this using either compaction grouting or permeation grouting. Compaction grouting is a process where we rapidly expand polyurethane foam and inject it into the ground. This foam will fill the voids and compacts the soil surrounding it using expansive pressure. This compaction grouting is done with any Precision Lift series, products wise.
If we use permeation grouting, the process is a little slower because of the slower reacting foam that is injected into the soil. It then permeated the soil before it expands. Once it is cured. Prime Flex will glue the soil particles together. We use Prime Flex 910 for permeation grouting. Another two-component is using Prime Flex 920 and Hydro Gel SX.
Once all of your stabilization is done we move onto the second step, Precision Lift process. In this process, we use rapidly expanding foam that is injected underneath the slab in short bursts. With this, we can then control the slab lift. With our special equipment, we are able to lift the slab. Our staff is well trained on this process.
