Body - Soil Stabilization in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, and VirginiaThe northeastern region of the United States faces a wide variety of infrastructure issues, caused by unstable soil, that contractors and property owners should be aware of.  These issues include:

  • Freeze/thaw cycles.
  • New construction compromising soil under neighboring structures.
  • Frequency of intense rainstorms, which cause flash flooding and erosion.
  • On coastal areas, erosion and soil disruption are also caused by rising sea levels.

How Does Polyurethane Soil Repair Help?

  • Strengthens the Soil
    Alchemy-Spetec soil stabilization foam allows contractors to strengthen soil for support of heavy structures.
  • Reinforces Eroded Areas
    Polyurethane foam displaces water and cures into a solid mass to reverse the erosion process.
  • Compacts the Soil
    The Deep Lift™ process compacts loose soil to create a strong substrate.
  • Fills Voids
    Polyurethane foam fills voids as it expands and before it cures, making it a great solution for instances of soil consolidation or biological decay.

What Are the Results?

  • Use of Surface and Surrounding Structures on Same Day as Repair
    Alchemy-Spetec soil stabilization foam cures to 90% full strength in 15 min­utes. In most cases the site is ready for traffic after clean up. 
  • Support for Up to 14,000 lbs/Sq. Ft.
    The Alchemy-Spetec series of geotech foams improves soil to support structural loads up to 14,000 pounds per square foot.
  • Stabilization Lasting Decades
    Alchemy-Spetec structural foams are a permanent fix.
