Chemical Grouting and Soil Stabilization Process for California, Nevada and Arizona
EagleLIFT is the most experienced chemical grouting contractor in California, Nevada, and Arizona. We have over 25-years experience in the application of two-part polyurethane for foundation lifting, soil stabilization, and sewer rehabilitation.
In regards to Foundation Repair, chemical grout is a highly adaptable material that uses expansion as a means to lift and/or stabilize foundation slabs. Once injected, chemical grout expands up to 25 times its initial volume with impressive weight-bearing capacity. With specialized injection patterns, the expansion can be used to fill voids, increase the soils weight bearing capacity, or create upward lift to realign foundation slabs. This process can be used in compliment to foundation piering to stabilize the upper soil layers or to help stabilize and lift interior slabs and footers.
Experience is Everything
In order to ensure project success, a contractor must understand how to inject, how to design the injection patterns, and what to watch out for to ensure project success. If the pattern is wrong, the project goals will not be met. If the contractor is not stringent in how much material or volume they inject, they could cause damage or create higher costs than budgeted. If they don’t know what to watch for while they are injecting, they can overlift slabs leading to cracking or property damage. EagleLIFT’s experience keeps us from making these mistakes and helps ensure your project is a success.
Chemical Grouting Applications
Polymer Injection Chemical Grouting Process
EagleLIFT is has specialized in Polymer Injection Chemical Grouting and Soil Stabilization for over 25 years in Arizona, California and Nevada. Our Polymer Injection Process is a highly dynamic solution for foundation lifting, trenchless sewer repair, soil compaction and densification and soil stabilization.
The chemical grout and soil stabilization application is installed by injecting a high-density industrial grade polyurethane into the problem soils through 1/2″ metal tubes. Once injected, the polymer moves throughout the soils in liquid form and then it reacts and begins to expand throughout the soil media, densifying and binding the treatment area. The result is vastly increased weight-bearing capacity and of the soil that is protected from future settlement.
The chemical grouting polymers are hydro-insensitive, which means they can be injected in highly saturated environments. This means our polymers can be used for sewer repair and sealing, foundations where high groundwater is present, mucky or swampy environments, or for bulkheads or seawalls.
Our polymer Injection and soil stabilization process binds treated soils into a highly dense monolith that is protected against settlement. The polymer is hydro-insensitive, meaning that it is unaffected by water. Additionally, the increased weight-bearing capacity of the soil mitigates the potential for weight shifting and vibration to move the soils away from the foundation.
The Polymer Injection Process additionally compliments other foundation repair solutions, such as helical piers, by ensugint the upper soil strata is compacted and binded, so the soils do not settle away from the anchors, nor the foundation.
Our chemical grout no-excavation sewer repair solution, a process by which we inject a high-density structural polyurethane into the support soils along the perimeter of your lateral lines and manholes. The structural polyurethane is specially formulated to operate in a wet or saturated environment and helps densify and compact the support soils, encapsulating the sewer line. This encapsulation process can be used for the following applications:
Our chemical grout solution is ideal for lifting, stabilizing and/or realigning foundation slabs. It is especially effective for void filling the upper strata soil layers of the foundation as well as lifting interior footings.
EagleLIFT’s polymer injection process is the ideal application for filling voids, soil compaction, soil densification, soil stabilization and improving the weight-bearing capacity of soil.
Once injected, the polymer moves throughout the soil in liquid form, aggressively seeking out voids and annular space in between the soil granules. The polymer expands throughout the soil, densifying and binding the soil into light-weight monolith. The soil’s weight bearing capacity is greatly improved and the chances of future settlement is greatly reduced.
EagleLIFT’s polymer injection process is ideal for restricting groundwater movement. The high-density structural polyurethane is hydrophobic and can be injected into the subsurface in a gridded pattern, forming a curtain wall of polymer that restricts groundwater or contamination migration.
This application is ideal for construction zones that require dewatering or have hazardous materials present that are impeding construction progress. This can also be used to stop contamination migration in highly developed areas, where traditional processes (such as bentonite slurry walls) are not feasible options for installation.
The injectable groudndwater curtain is ideal due to its speed of installation, highly effective results and reasonable cost. This service can be performed by EagleLIFT in the states of California, Nevada and Arizona.
