Since 1989, URETEK has put thousands of customers in control of their concrete lifting problems, saving them millions of dollars in costly repairs, downtime, and disruption. We operate with attention to service and detail, and with the earned expertise required to tackle large-scale projects. As pioneers in the industry, we developed many practices in common use today. URETEK Deep Injection® (UDI) is widely referenced by practitioners throughout our industry, and together with our documented processes, UDI serves as the basis of every job we do. Utilizing UDI, we have rehabilitated over 50,000 miles of pavement – enough to circle the globe more than twice.
URETEK. Pioneers of the Industry.
URETEK Deep Injection® (UDI)
UDI involves the injection of structural polymer into base and subgrade soils to increase the load bearing capacity. This is achieved by injecting the polymer through small holes drilled directly through the pavement structure to depths determined by site-specific analysis. Our URETEK 486 Star® material flows easily into voids and weak zones within the soil mass below. Through a controlled chemical reaction, the expanding polymer compacts surrounding soils and applies a controlled pressure on targeted areas of the affected pavement above. If needed, a multi-injection design plan is utilized to gently return the pavement to its original grade. The composite material quickly cures into a strong, dimensionally stable, and water-resistant geo-material, providing years of reliable service.
The URETEK team includes industry experts who bring decades of practical engineering, geotechnical, chemical, construction, and pavement experience to each project. Our business was founded on six core principles that remain at the forefront of our business approach every day:
