Manitowoc, Wisconsin – HMI is introducing a new polyurethane-based system for lifting concrete. The Deep Foamjection system includes equipment, accessories and materials that will enable contractors to support tilted structures, and remediate problems created by sub-grade soil issues.
The package of equipment includes injection pipes, push tools and injection points, to be used with HMU’s polyurethane Hydro Foam. The system is designed to solve problems caused by voids, weak soils, improper compaction and groundwater, among others. It can be operated by contractors equipped with HMI’s polyurethane concrete lifting systems.
‘Deep Foamjection, like polyurethane concrete lifting, remains the most efficient, fastest and least obtrusive process to solve structural and settlement problems caused by weak or poor subgrade soil issues,’ says the system’s inventor, HMI’s EVP for product development Brian Cvetezar. ‘Repairs are made in hours and days versus weeks and months, at a fraction of the traditional costs.’
