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

Problem: Ace Pipe Cleaning, a Carylon company in Kansas City, Missouri, has five crews doing manhole rehabilitation, including lift stations. Their bread and butter is applying epoxy coatings and cementitious linings, but in order to do that, they have to stop any active infiltrations first.
Solution: They do this with low pressure injection of Prime Flex Hydro Gel SX. This product is a single-component, hydrophilic polyurethane resin that reacts with water to form an impenetrable foam or gel, depending on the concentration. Hydro Gel SX is a very low viscosity, quick setting resin, ensuring the ability to penetrate fine cracks as well as fill larger gaps.
Outcome: According Ace’s Bryan Dobson, his crews like it because it is easy to use and fast acting.
“Anyone fighting I&I has several choices on the market that most guys have tried. We’ve tried a lot of things and we’ve settled with Hydro Gel,” says Dobson. “Because it’s fast acting, it helps expedite that part of our work. Our revenue comes from lining, so the quicker we can fully stop leaks, the sooner we can install our linings.”
Dobson’s crews use pneumatic and electric pumps to install the Hydro Gel SX in volume, though it can also be installed with the same equipment used for acrylamide grouts, including inline packers. Ace uses it to stop active infiltrations strictly in conjunction with lining though other contractors use it by itself for sealing below-grade infiltration such as pipe penetrations, such as this one pictured.
