Permeation grouting is the direct pressure injection of a fluid grout into the ground to fill the spaces between particles.
It is a very flexible approach to ground improvement and is the most used of all grouting techniques. The intent is to fill the pore spaces of aggregates and soil, the void space in cracks & joints, or the anomalies in concrete & rock.
This Engineer approved grouting technique can be used for underpinning, excavation, shoring, or a combination of the three making it a cost effective alternative to conventional shoring systems.
Permeation Grouting can be used to:
- Strengthen sands and gravels
- Repair structural & rock formations
- Stop the flow of groundwater
