In the commercial concrete leveling market, that means the use of the PolyLevel® leveling system, an innovative alternative to common concrete remediation methods like mudjacking, concrete grinding, and total concrete replacement.
The process for PolyLevel® echoes that of traditional slabjacking. Once an issue is identified, such as a sinking slab of concrete on the sidewalk outside your business, holes are drilled in the required areas on the slab, which provide access to the soil beneath the slab itself. From there, expanding polyurethane compounds are injected through the hole and under the slab, which lifts the concrete back to the desired level and strengthens the piece as a whole. Depending on the specific application, the makeup of each compound can be tailored to best suit the needs of a given project.
Unlike traditional slabjacking, PolyLevel® lifts damaged, settled concrete slabs using a high-density polyurethane foam that weighs only 4 pounds per cubic foot. For reference, traditional slabjacking, which uses a similar process to lift settled slabs, injects concrete and other cementitious compounds with an average weight of roughly 120 pounds per cubic foot. The light weight and overall strength of the PolyLevel® material exerts only minimal additional pressure on the soil underneath the slab.
