Abandoned mines, sewer lines, and culverts can create serious environmental problems and safety hazards. These underground structures create underground voids, which in time can cause sinkholes, soil destabilization, and water intrusion. This can increase the risk of ground collapse and residual fluids leaking into public areas. In the interest of public and environmental safety, it is crucial that councils and asset owners decommission and fill these underground structures correctly, quickly, and safely. Fillfoam can fill mines, culverts, and sewers. This foam is a type of polyurethane foam that is made from renewable resources. It provides a safe and sustainable solution to many problems municipalities may face. Quattro Contracting specializes in void filling for municipal needs using Fillfoam.
Fillfoam is a pre-expanded open-cell foam formula ideal for any void filling process, and it does not lose volume when pumped in confinement. FillFoam is composed of a resin pre-expanded with air; a hardener completes the compound, causing the resin to harden completely when applied. Fillfoam helps provide sustainable solutions to many problems. It is environmentally friendly and can be removed and recycled if needed. FillFoam cells are made with air and not a chemical reaction, and it can be pumped in unlimited quantities without any risk of heat or fire. Fillfoam can expand up to 20 times its original volume, so it can take up any space, no matter how big or small. Fillfoam is immune to seasonal changes, hydro-insensitive, lightweight and highly durable. FillFoam is a cost-effective, fast and safe way to fill voids with limited access.
Fillfoam is an excellent alternative to traditional void-filling techniques. Fillfoam is able to flow long distances beneath the surface directly from access points. Void filling is faster and more cost-effective than demolition and alternative methods. The result is lighter, more durable and easier to transport. And because it's lighter, it's easier to install in tight spaces. Fillfoam is the perfect solution for municipalities that have to fill sewers or mines, or culverts.
Fillfoam is excellent for void filling, but it also has many other municipal uses. FillFoam can also help control mine ventilation, and it can control water leaks and run-off, making it an excellent sewer infrastructure repair product. FillFoam can be used to treat inflow and infiltration issues in man-holes, pipe joints, laterals, culverts, and outfalls. FillFoam can also be used to seal and prevent water from seeping into wet wells, pump stations and utility boxes. FillFoam performs exceptionally well in wet conditions, making it the perfect choice for these types of repairs. Fillfoam is one of the essential elements in repairing roads after extreme weather conditions or natural disasters. Fillfoam also helps repair crumbling foundations without expensive construction methods like jackhammering or breaking up concrete slabs. Fillfoam is also perfect for emergency municipal repairs.
Void filling is an essential part of keeping municipalities safe. Ensuring the safety of residents and the environment are significant responsibilities for any municipality. Quattro Contracting can use Fillfoam to help with your municipal service needs in various ways.
Fillfoam has many benefits. No heat is created during installation, so it is safe to install at any rate or quantity quickly and safely. Fillfoam is immune to seasonal changes, and it is also hydro-insensitive and UV-insensitive. It can help absorb water from overburdened soils. It is lightweight and highly durable and can even be re-excavated easily if necessary.
Fillfoam is also environmentally friendly because it doesn't contain volatile organic compounds. Fillfoam has a shallow toxicity level and doesn't emit harmful fumes or particles into the air. It doesn't contain any ozone-depleting chemicals and is non-toxic to marine life. This makes it safe to fill sewers, culverts, and mines. Fillfoam's features make it an excellent option for green buildings that care about their environmental impact.
Sewers, mines, and culverts that have been decommissioned or abandoned can lead to severe problems if not handled correctly. If these underground structures collapse, they can lead to significant soil destabilization, cause severe damage to surrounding structures, and become a significant safety hazard. To effectively abandon mines, sewers and culverts, Quattro Contracting uses Fillfoam to fill the voids and provide stability for long-term durability.
