The covering of taxiways and take-off and landing runways on aerodromes may sink. When using classical methods, restoring damaged sections along with strengthening the subsoil and replacing cover plates takes several weeks or even months, during which aerodrome cannot operate at full capacity. When using URETEK materials, restoration works take only a few days or even just a few hours.
URETEK is a technology for strengthening, lifting and levelling soil that makes it possible to stop movement and subsidence of wooden, brick, stone and concrete structures and increase load-bearing capacity of soil and foundation.
Compared to cement mixtures, URETEK materials are more elastic, which is a huge advantage. As the soil expands and shrinks (depending on its moisture content), cement mixture crumbles and loses its properties, turning to dust. Use of cement mixtures and silicating is not possible in case of soil with porous structure and high content of organic substances.
URETEK geopolymers stand out for their ability to preserve their properties even in humid environment. Due to their special composition, geopolymers are protected against water. Therefore, geopolymer resins can be used for strengthening the shores of waterbodies.
URETEK geopolymers injection technology allows repairing railway embankments in the shortest time, while not affecting train traffic. Geopolymer resins help to strengthen and stabilise sunken crushed stone layer, also level concrete slabs of railway tunnels, stations, crossings and depots and lift them to designed height where necessary.
