Seal leaks in concrete or masonry with crack injection and curtain grouting of our Prime Flex polyurethanes and AR acrylate resins. Prime Resins offers superior solutions for stopping leaks in every type of environment.
Sound concrete relies on a sound substrate. Stabilize soils and fill voids with our polyurethane and acrylate foams and gels. We make chemical grouts for permeation and compaction grouting in wet and dry conditions.
Slab lifting and slab stabilization with polyurethane foams offers many advantages over traditional mudjacking. Only Precision Lift is engineered to tackle underlying issues and slab lifting with precise, dependable results.
Protecting concrete usually means shielding it from the elements of nature or from harsh manmade chemicals. But it’s not just concrete that needs such protection. Corrugated metal pipe, steel surfaces, material hoppers, rail cars and masonry all can come in contact with corrosive or abrasive materials or harsh conditions.
Spalled concrete is concrete that is chipped, cracked and deteriorating. This often happens at a joint.
You can repair a seawall or bulkhead with Prime Resins chemical grouts: fill voids, stabilize loose soil and seal leaks at a fraction of the cost of wall replacement.
The need for crack repair in concrete structures can be caused by many different factors. Damage can occur to the concrete in situations where direct impact puts stress on one area of the structure.
The geotechnical needs of DOTs and other agencies responsible for roads and bridges are vast. Issues include: Culvert repair Soil stabilization Void filling Concrete slab lifting Sinkhole remediation Slope control Slough control in tunneling

A three-story office building at Nellis AFB was renovated and converted to living quarters. One challenge posed in the project was underpinning the existing foundation for the 8-foot depth excavation required for the construction of an elevator shaft adjacent to the foundation. Structural drawings were provided for the underpinning of the foundation, but the contractor was required to construct a shoring plan for the vertically cut subgrade soils.
SCOPE OF WORK
Foundation Stabilization was contacted by E-Corp for the task of underpinning the existing foundation and to devise a shoring plan for the 8 ft (H) x 20 ft (L) x 18 ft (W) excavation. The contractor emphasized that in addition to excavation safety, the primary goal was to prevent settlement of the existing foundation and maintain the integrity of the subgrade near the existing foundation and slab. The subgrade soils were a sand with silt grading to a silt with sand. Foundation Stabilization proposed the use of helical piers to underpin the existing foundation and provided an approved shoring plan calling out for chemical grouting around the perimeter of the excavation to a depth of 8 feet before breaking ground.
Foundation Stabilization performed the installation of three helical piers to underpin the existing foundation and injected SoiLok 20 to a depth of 9 feet around the perimeter of the proposed excavation for the chemical grouting activity. The effectiveness of the SoiLok chemical grouting was evaluated during the excavation process. Foundation Stabilization observed that SoiLok provided a significant increase to the shear strength of the treated subgrade soil. This strength increase was visibly and mechanically apparent between the grout interface of the treated and untreated subgrade soils. The excavation was open for approximately 6 weeks and no sloughing, tension cracks, or settlement of the existing footing was observed throughout the duration in which the excavation was exposed.
SoiLok was chosen as the optimum product for this project due to its ability to permeate silty soils, longevity, and performance during testing.
