Soil Stabilization

There are three primary particle types that make all soil types: Clay, sand and silt. There are a variety of soil compositions around the world that have characteristics based on the percentage of clay, sand, or silt. Clays absorb moisture and have slow drainage. It can take one drop of water years to travel only a few feet through clay. Sand permeate water easily, but like silt can be easily washed away in the right conditions. Different regions around the world have various combinations of soils that behave and fail differently.

Soil stabilization is required when soils are weak, settled, or wash away. Weak soils often lead to structure or slab failures, FillFoam is widely used for soils stabilization because it quickly adds volume into the soils creating a stronger base that is bound together. As foam is pumped into the ground it fills voids, builds pressure, and compacts the weak soils.

The installed FillFoam will not change shape, compress, wash away, or interrupt drainage. FillFoam can absorb moisture from surrounding soils that are overburdened by water or oversaturated. The structure of the foam allows water to absorb into the cells, while offering buoyancy from the air filled closed cells to efficiently carry the weight of the water.

Soil stabilization is often required with the structures of slabs that carry large loads, traffic, have excessive water drainage, or ate subject to vibrations. Seawalls, Grain bins, Roadways, wind turbines, machine bases, and structures with weak soils or in seismic zones are commonly in need of soil stabilization.

Post Setting

There are many ways to set fence posts.  Many include mixing small batches of cement and extensive bracing to hold everything in place while allowing the cement to cure.  Some methods include premixing cement, others involve dry mixing directly into the post hole.  Both commonly result in a lot of time, effort and inconstant mixes that could fail and allow for movement.

Now imagine holding a post level for less than 1 minute while foam is sprayed into the post hole.  Foam cures quickly allowing you to move to the next post.  No need for water, mixing or the hazard of breathing in silica dust.  Fast, easy and cost-effective, setting posts with foam is growing in popularity with contractors.  What could take all day to prep and mix can be done in a fraction of the time.

The use of foam offers a consistent, lightweight solution.  Foam embeds into the surrounding dirt as it expands.  A variety of density foams can be used based on the engineered requirements for the fence or setting.  Material costs are comparable to cement, but savings quickly surpass when prep and mixing time is considered.

Often times when a pole or post setting fails, it is due to movement in the surrounding soils.  Foam and also soil binders can be used to solidify and strengthen the soils that failed.  Expanding foam can add volume and strength to the soils, while soil binders can solidify the soils and remove the possibility of movement.  Both applications involve injecting materials into the ground to repair the soils that allowed the post or pole to move.
