The PolyLevel® system provides a new, state-of-the-art solution to a very old problem: sinking or settling concrete. Virtually every type of concrete flatwork (slabs, sidewalks, driveways, runways, patios, and more) will be susceptible to sinking if the supporting soil is loose, weak or prone to compression. Concrete will also sink when support soil is washed away.
Traditionally, repair contractors had two main ways to deal with sunken concrete: demolition followed by reconstruction, or mud jacking to raise a sunken slab with hydraulic pressure. PolyLevel® provides an alternative to these techniques, offering notable advantages such as speed, effectiveness and soil consolidation capability.

The PolyLevel® process utilizes an expanding, 2-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam to raise sunken concrete. The PolyLevel® system includes not only the 2-component foam materials, but also highly calibrated storage, temperature management and dispensing equipment that is usually housed in a specially fitted box truck.
The 2-part PolyLevel® mixture is a modified geotechnical version of the spray polyurethane foam (SPF) systems used to insulate and seal residential and commercial buildings. The 2 parts are typically referred to as “Part A” and “Part B.”
Part A is a petroleum-based isocyanate. Part B contains polyol resin, a surfactant, a blowing agent and a catalyst that causes the two liquid compounds to turn into expanding foam when they are mixed at the application nozzle.
The PolyLevel® foam is injected beneath settled concrete through 5/8-in.-dia. holes drilled through the concrete at strategic locations, ideal for residential and commercial applications.
Individuals who choose the PolyLevel® process over other concrete leveling products are usually very pleased with their decision because of PolyLevel®’s favorable characteristics, which are summarized below.
