EagleLIFT Inc, announces its Proprietary “EL” Polymers in Collaboration with NCFI Polyurethanes

Ontario, CA – EagleLIFT Inc., a foundation repair and soil rehabilitation contractor based in Ontario, CA, announced the release of its proprietary “EL” polymers that it says will change the industry.

With over 20 years of operational and design expertise, EagleLIFT has helped innovate the use of two-part chemical grout as a soil compaction and foundation lifting solution.  EagleLIFT’s proprietary injection designs have evolved the industry by providing new techniques for achieving soil bearing capacity improvements.

“We have seen and used multitudes of different polyurethane formulations throughout our 20-year history,” states Don Moody, founder and President of EagleLIFT. “Working with NCFI, we have taken our tried-and-true application experience and designed polymer products which meet specialized application specifications.”

EagleLIFT’s EL polymers are designed to meet specific application needs, from soil stabilization and densification to advanced hydro-insensitivity to liquefaction mitigation. The polymers are at their core a two-part, closed-celled structural polyurethane. The polyurethane expands up to 25 times its initial volume through an exothermic reaction that happens when its plural components combine and release carbon dioxide. The polymer initially mixes with the soil layer, creating a matrix of soil and polymer that is highly dense with increased load-bearing capacity.  With different formula variations, mixing techniques, and injection designs, the polymers can achieve a broad range of applications.

“The fact is, each project and application is different, and while some polymers are more for utility, some polymers are designed to achieve specific needs, such as road lifting, seawall stabilization, or foundation lifting,” states Derek Berthelot, Vice President of Business Development. “Our polymer formulations were designed and tested around our application knowledge and experience, ensuring we have customized industry leading products that more effectively achieve our customers’ goals.”

“Geotechnical Aspects of Polyurethane Grout” Webinar Provides Engineers with Insight into the power of polymer

“Geotechnical Aspects of Polyurethane Grout” Webinar Provides Engineers with Insight into the power of polymer

Technical webinar on utilizing polyurethane grout Injection for chemical grouting and soil stabilization

Today, EagleLIFT hosted a webinar with guest speaker Randy Post, Senior Engineer, Golder Associates, on the “Geotechnical Aspects of Polyurethane Grout.”  The webinar provided deep insight on the applications of utilizing polyurethane grout for geotechnical applications, such as foundation repair, sewer repair, inflow and infitration mitigation, soil stabilization and slope stabilization.

The well attended event was the latest in a series of educational webinars that EagleLIFT is hosting to help provide educational opportunities for geotechnical engineers, civil engineers, environmental consultants, public works managers and faciltiy owners to learn how polyurethane grout may be a tool for them.

The webinar featured guest speaker Randy Post, Senior Engineer, Golder Associates, and EagleLIFT’s Regional Consultant Brendan Barrett.

Randy Post is a registered Civil Engineer (AZ) practicing in geotechnical engineering, specializing in transportation, infrastructure, mining, and large facilities. He specializes in complex geotechnical projects involving bridges, retaining walls and large cut and fill slopes. He is a geological engineer has been very useful in working on projects involving rock slopes, rockfall, and geologic hazards. He also founded GeoPrac.net in 2007, a news blog and community site for geotechnical and geological engineers.

The hour long webinar was concluded with an in depth question and answer session, whereby engineers from across the country challenged Mr. Post and Mr. Barrett with interesting perspective, testing methods and applications for the polyurethane grout.

“I would like to thank Randy Post for sharing his in-depth knowledge for using polyurethane grout for geotechnical applications,” states Don Moody, President and Owner of EagleLIFT.  “Randy lends a highly technical perspective on the effective uses and limitations of polyurethane grout.  EagleLIFT is a knowledge provider and contractor and we want to make sure our customers are fully educated on our applications and approaches.”

ADOT Loop 101 Video Image

EagleLIFT is featured in ADOT Loop 101 Road Lift Project Video

Phoenix, AZ – EagleLIFT, Inc.’s, a foundation repair and sewer repair company based in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, URETEK Process was featured in a recent video by the Arizona Department of Transportation. The project was a roadway lifting project on the Loop 101 (Prima Freeway) widening project in Scottsdale, AZ.

The Loop 101 widening project is adding new outside lanes and roadway improvements between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 in the Phoenix metropolitan area. EagleLIFT, with URETEK USA, utilized the patented URETEK Deep Injection® Process to help rehabilitate the existing roadway and lift any dips and fill voids where present.

“We understood the importance of this project to the Phoenix metropolitan area and the Arizona DOT,” states EagleLIFT President Donald Moody. “The URETEK Deep Injection® Process is one of the most effective processes for rehabilitating roadways. It allows you to quickly lift and stabilize the road without excavation and with minimal impact to the community.”

The URETEK Deep Injection® Process is a technique whereby an industrial grade structural polyurethane is injected to densify and stabilize the support soils underneath the roadway. The polyurethane is injected in a multiple depth and horizontal gridded pattern to fill voids and densify the soil. This process is used to increase the base soil’s weight-bearing capacity, as well as achieving upward lift for leveling the roadway or any effected structure.

In a press release from ADOT, Steve Boschen, Director of ADOT’s Infrastructure Delivery and Operations Division, stated that “This is certainly less disruptive than digging up the freeway to do reconstruction work. It is a high-tech fix when it comes to long-term ground settlement beneath a freeway. Expansion foam isn’t the answer in all cases, but we’ve had some great success in offsetting the effects of ground settlement.”

EagleLIFT won the Loop 101 soil stabilization portion of the project with URETEK USA (which EagleLIFT is the sole licensee in Arizona, California and Nevada) in a competitively bid award. More information about the Loop 101 improvements is available by visiting azdot.gov/Loop101.
