Located in Orlando, Florida, Slab Fix LLC undertook a significant project aimed at rectifying structural issues for a Florida Factory to fill void under concrete slab using a polyurethane injection process. This project centered around Prodalim’s Ocoee facility and involved addressing a critical problem that had the potential to disrupt operations.
The main drain sewer lines at the Ocoee facility suffered a significant rupture, causing the erosion of approximately 20 cubic yards of compacted fill underneath the concrete flooring. To counteract the potential repercussions of this loss of support, Slab Fix LLC was entrusted with devising a suitable remedy.
A Practical Solution by SlabFix
Drawing on their expertise in structural solutions, Slab Fix LLC proposed a pragmatic approach to resolve the issue. The chosen method involved the application of the Strata-Fill™ 24-039 Geotechnical polyurethane by NCFI Polyurethanes, known for its dual-component composition and slow reactivity. This approach allowed for meticulous void filling, restoring stability to the compromised area. The material’s hydrophobic properties and low density of 2 lbs. per cubic foot made it a well-suited choice for this restoration project.
Reflecting on the project, Yasser Krayem, the owner and operator of SlabFix, shared his perspective: “The Prodalim project underscored our commitment to delivering effective solutions in a seamless manner. Collaborating closely with Prodalim USA Inc. and NCFI Polyurethane’s Geotechnical Division demonstrated our dedication to structural stability for our clients using world class products.”
Efficient Execution, Lasting Results
Slab Fix LLC’s execution of the solution demonstrated efficiency and precision. In just two days, the team successfully injected the Strata-Fill™ 24-039 Geotechnical polyurethane to fill void under concrete slab. This methodical process reestablished the lost support, facilitating the installation of new drainpipes without causing any operational disruptions.
The collaborative effort between Slab Fix LLC, NCFI Polyurethanes and Prodalim USA Inc. exemplifies the positive outcomes that can arise from informed and strategic approaches to structural challenges. By identifying suitable materials and employing a meticulous execution process, the project not only resolved the immediate issue but also fortified the facility’s infrastructure for the future. As Prodalim’s operations proceed without interruption, this project stands as a testament to the impact of well-considered solutions in navigating complex structural setbacks.
