NCFI’s TerraThane Geotechnical Polyurethane Foam Systems

NCFI’s TerraThane Geotechnical Polyurethane Foam Systems

TerraThane is the brand name for a series of polyurethane foam systems formulated for residential and commercial geotechnical uses. TerraThane is an innovative leader in concrete lifting and leveling, foundation repair, infrastructure remediation, erosion control, pipeline trench breaker, or mine reclamation.

Why is it unique?

Easy to Apply
Since our foams cure in minutes—most solutions exhibit 90% of full compression strength after 15 minutes—large surface areas can be lifted and reopened during application. This allows for swift construction and minimal waste.

Lower overhead costs
The ease of application contributes to less time working, as does the fact that many of our geotechnical foam solutions can be applied by a two-man crew. These factors all translate to fewer paid man-hours, and lower overall job costs.

Scorch-free processing
Our geotechnical foam solutions are designed to be built up in great lift thickness without scorching or foam splitting. During application, our systems have low exo-therm heat transfer, which eliminates additional spray passes and ensures quick construction.

Moisture tolerant and resistant
Though our solutions are injected into wet areas, they will maintain their physical characteristics during reaction and expansion. Plus, the high-density, closed-cell nature of geotechnical foam makes them resistant to water penetration

Exceptional inter-layer adhesion
Due to high structural compressive strength providing strong inter-layer adhesion, our solutions ensure a strong monolithic barrier, one that outperforms sand bags. NCFI’s geotechnical foam systems don’t shift and settle afterwards, which means long-term erosion issues are reduced.

Completely conformable
During the injection process, geotechnical foam will flow freely into cracks and voids, ultimately expanding to its final in-place density—which is normally greater than its free-rise density. Free-rise density is determined without any loads or restrictions placed on the geotechnical foam.

Legendary NCFI support
As the American pioneer of polyurethane foam we’ve developed some of the most used and appreciated foam solutions for industrial, commercial, and geotechnical applications. As industry experts, we offer full field service and support for equipment, application and equipment training, and replacement parts.
