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

Distributor and Technical Consultant: Martech: Driving Strategic Sales
Contractor: New Shield Ltd.
Client: Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure
The province of Saskatchewan in central Canada has an enormous inventory of roads. In fact, its 190,000 kilometers of roadway are the most of any province or territory in Canada. The many rivers and streams crisscrossing the province mean that there is also an enormous inventory of bridges. The adverse effects of time and climate are taking a toll on many of them.
After a successful highway stabilization project in neighboring Alberta, Martech president Glenn Votkin recommended the injection of chemical grout—in this case Prime Flex 920 polyurethane resin from Prime Resins. The resin would fill voids and stabilize the substrate behind and beneath bridge abutments. Martech matches infrastructure repair specialists with government agencies to find innovative solutions for their repair needs.
The September 2014 issue of Heavy Equipment Guide featured the successful project:
“In this case, [New Shield president Larry] Graham worked with the Ministry and Martech to design a mitigation technique that would fill voids and stabilize loose soil with minimal expansion, and used a hydrophobic formulation that would not degrade when exposed to water – in fact, moisture in the surrounding soil is required for the resin to set… The idea is to fill voids in such a way that subsequent inflows and leaks are diverted and prevented in ways that eliminate any future erosion.” Chemical grout injection avoided extensive excavation, fabric layer installation, filling and repaving.
The genius part of the project? New Shield chose to inject the grout from underneath the bridge, allowing the roadway to remain open throughout the project. The hard cost of the project was comparable to a traditional replacement project, “but there was a big advantage to the public – user costs don’t show up on our bottom line, but avoiding traffic closures would save a lot of time and inconvenience for the people we serve,” said ministry bridge preservation engineer Brodie Thompson, P.Eng to the magazine.
Road authorities across North America face a major problem with crumbling roads and bridges. Injection resins offer a much faster and less disruptive option for repair and renewal.
