As tidal flows rise and fall, water pushes its way in through cracks, joints, and defects in seawalls. The water pushes in on incoming tides and flows out on outgoing tides. As the water flows out, it carries sand and soil with it which causes undermining of the structure, voids to form, and deteriorates the structural integrity of the seawall. This cycle is exacerbated during periods of heavy rain which continue the outflow of soil.
Polyurethane seawall repair, what we like to call the “Next Generation” approach, has a lot of advantages over both excavation and cement grout. These advantages directly address some of the weaknesses inherent in the other options. Polyurethane seawall repair material is…
• Efficiently installed, with minimal disruption from equipment, labor and messy materials
• Rapidly installed, with a quick return-to-use time
• Environmentally friendly
Compared to the typical disruption caused by excavation or cement grout repair, a polyurethane repair team will seem like a stealthy ninja strike force. Polyurethane installation equipment and procedures allow for a non-invasive, clean approach to repair that often allows the property owner to continue use during the process. In all cases, the property owner can resume activity on and around the structure within hours after a repair. As explained in their blog post Alchemy-Spetec’s NSF Certification Spells Environmental Protection, most of our products have been rigorously tested not only for contact with typical recreational and commercial bodies of water, but even for contact with drinking water. So there is NO doubt about the environmentally friendly advantages of Alchemy-Spetec seawall repair materials.
