  1. Horizonal Drilling and Hyperflex Grout

    Comments Off on Horizonal Drilling and Hyperflex Grout

    To install a pipeline underneath an interstate, a horizontal directional drill was used. However, the drilling discovered that the area consisted of large voids / karst zones. The pipeline itself needs to have a solid foundation to rest on. To fill the voids, polyurethane grout was injected into the problem areas. The grout used was Hyperflex, manufactured by SealGuard, Inc. Hyperflex reacts with the moisture in the ground which creates an expanding foam to provide a solid base for the pipeline. Hyperflex is NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 for contact with potable water. The grouting was done by Sub-Technical, Inc.

  2. Single Component Polyurethane Grout Injection

    Smaller water leaks in structures can be sealed by injecting single component polyurethane grout into the leak paths. The grout being used is Hyperflex, manufactured by SealGuard, Inc.  Being a single component grout, Hyperflex is pre catalyzed and only needs 2% moisture to start reacting (foaming).  The expanding foam will fill the voids that is creating the leak.  Once cured, the foam will remain flexible to allow for slight movements within the structure.  The benefit of a single component grout is the slower reaction and lower viscosity.  This allows the material to travel further before the reaction, allowing for better penetration and coverage within the leaking substrate.  Hyperflex is also NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 approved for contact with potable water. This injection was done using a grout pump and mechanical injection packers.  Burlap was placed in a large void before injection to help prevent the grout from washout. Grouting was performed by Sub-Technical, Inc.

  3. Concrete Floor Seeping Water

    This new construction concrete floor was leaking ground water at a joint.  Polyurethane grout was pressure injected through mechanical packers to seal off the flow.  The grout was Hyperflex, a single component moisture activated material that is manufactured by SealGuard, Inc.  Hyperflex is pre-catalyzed and in NSF-61 approved for potable water.  The grouting was done by grouting contractor Sub-Technical, Inc.
