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

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has deemed that as much as 60% of groundwater infiltration arrives through sanitary sewer manholes. For over 50 years, chemical grouting is one of the oldest techniques used to stop ground water infiltration into sewer collection systems.
There are three basic methods for sealing manholes. The first, and most basic method is commonly referred to as 'oakum/ soak 'em' and is used to seal leaking cast concrete joints and pipe entry points, and manholes with missing or broken bricks. This method utilizes a water reactive urethane chemical such as Hydrogel SX and jute rope commonly known as oakum, which is mixed together to form a permanent seal. This practice is commonly around pipe interfaces or used when gaps in the structure is present and exhibiting groundwater infiltration.
A second method utilizes a low viscosity permeation (1-2 cps) AR 800 Acrylate or PR10 ACLM Acrylamide chemical. This technique requires a stainless steel plural component pump that injects the grout under pressure through the manhole (using probes or a packer) into the surrounding soil. The permeation grout does not expand, but saturate the soil immediately outside of the manhole (with a desired gel-time) that permanently stabilizes the soil and creates a barrier against ground water entering the manhole. This can even be done in moisture saturated soils, however a faster gel time may be desired.
The third method utilizes a water-reactive hydrophobic Prime Flex 920 urethane. This method requires a single-component pump to inject the grout. When mixed with water, the grout expands under pressure chasing water through the cracks subsequently filling the cracks and voids adhering to the soils outside the manhole. This hydrophobic chemical binds with the soil to offer greater tensile strengths than chemical gel grouts, thus creating what is commonly know as “grout columns”.
As mentioned, when as much as 60% of groundwater inflow and infiltration entering through vertical collection structures, the rehabilitation of aging infrastructure has never been so important. Although chemical grouting can be used as a stand-alone practice, more municipalities are combining this procedure with the rehabilitation of the structures; as these methods require a dry substrate for the application of proposed coating. With the multitude of proactive technologies in the trenchless industry, this time-tested technique of chemical grouting has been the only proven method to remediate inflow and infiltration: AT THE SOURCE.
