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.
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
Prime Flex 985 LX10 is a two-component, low exotherm, polyurethane foam used to fill voids, stabilize soil and underseal concrete slabs. Its very low viscosity allows for moderate permeation effects. It can also be used for compaction grouting soils. A fast-reacting formulation, 985 LX10 Fast is also available. It reacts in 18 seconds versus 70 seconds for standard LX10.
