Our Concrete Polyurethane Raising Process:
- Site preparation: Before beginning the polyurethane raising process, it is important to prepare the work area properly. This includes cleaning the concrete surface, removing any debris, and marking off the area to be raised. It is also important to identify and mark any utility lines or other potential hazards that could be damaged during the process.
- Drilling access holes: To inject the polyurethane foam, access holes need to be drilled into the concrete. These holes are typically 5/8 inch in diameter and spaced approximately 3 to 4 feet apart, depending on the size and shape of the slab.
- Injecting the polyurethane foam: Once the access holes are drilled, a specialized injection gun is used to inject the polyurethane foam into the voids beneath the concrete slab. The foam is injected under pressure, causing it to expand and fill the voids. As the foam expands, it lifts the slab back to its original position.
- Finishing the surface: After the foam has been injected and the slab has been lifted, any excess foam is trimmed away, and the access holes are patched with a cementitious material. The surface is then cleaned and polished to ensure a smooth and even finish.
- Curing time: The polyurethane foam will typically cure in a matter of minutes, and the surface can be used immediately after the process is complete. However, it is recommended to wait 12-24 hours before subjecting the surface to heavy loads or traffic.
