Ground Stabilisation and Slab Lifting

Ground Stabilisation and Slab Lifting

Subsidence (when the ground sinks due to movement of underground materials/earth) is a serious issue for buildings - a big warning sign is a sinking concrete floor. If left untreated the condition will worsen, furthering the expense while causing other consequent damage.

Causes of subsidence are varying and can include droughts (where the earth contracts due to it being so dry), seismic activity, heavy traffic, machinery vibrations or excavation work, broken pipes and stormwater damage, mining, tree roots, erosion, poorly compacted soil and more which can result in displacement, movement and an altered condition of the earth.

This displacement will affect the structures built on top and can happen gradually over a long period of time, or very rapidly in response to one of these many causes. A long-lasting solution is crucial and will involve re-levelling techniques using injection foam to stabilise the earth underneath.

Polyurethane foam is perfect for ground stabilisation due to its fast-cure, low price point, ease of injection and allows return to service much quicker than alternative methods.

Understanding Ground Stabilisation

Ground stabilisation is a critical process in maintaining the integrity of structures and surfaces. At Liquimix, we specialise in ground stabilisation PU systems that address various causes of subsidence, such as droughts, seismic activity, heavy traffic, and more. These disturbances can lead to displacement and movement, adversely affecting buildings and infrastructure.

The Role of Polyurethane Foam in Ground Stabilisation

Polyurethane foam is a key player in ground stabilisation. Its fast-curing properties, affordability, and ease of injection make it a superior choice for stabilising ground underneath structures. With polyurethane foam, the return to service is much quicker compared to other methods, making it a go-to solution for immediate and effective stabilisation.

Applications of Ground Stabilisation Systems

Ground stabilisation systems are versatile in their applications. They are not only used for slab lifting and general ground stabilisation but also play a vital role in repairs following natural disasters and in the restoration of heritage buildings. Their adaptability and strength make them suitable for a wide range of scenarios, ensuring stability and longevity.

Innovative Solutions for Slab Lifting

Slab lifting is a crucial aspect of ground stabilisation, and our polyurethane foam products are specifically designed for this purpose. They provide a solid foundation and support, effectively lifting and stabilising concrete slabs that have been affected by subsidence.

Liquimix's Commitment to Ground Stabilisation

Liquimix is dedicated to providing top-tier ground stabilisation systems. Our commitment is reflected in our high-quality products, including our range of polyurethane foam solutions. We understand the importance of a stable foundation and work diligently to offer solutions that ensure the safety and longevity of your projects. 

Our ground stabilisation expertise extends to handling challenging terrains and conditions, ensuring that even the most susceptible areas are securely stabilised. Our innovative ground stabilisation systems are tailored to meet the specific needs of each project, ensuring a tailored and effective solution for every situation.

Expanding Beyond Ground Stabilisation

In addition to ground stabilisation, Liquimix offers products like expansion joint filler and render filler. These products complement our ground stabilisation solutions by providing additional support and stability to various structures. Whether it’s filling gaps or reinforcing joints, our products are designed to enhance the overall integrity of buildings and infrastructures. 

The expansion joint filler is particularly effective in absorbing the thermal expansion and contraction of materials, thus preventing damage. Meanwhile, our render filler plays a crucial role in repairing and smoothing out surface imperfections, ensuring a robust and aesthetically pleasing finish to structures.
