Mudjacking Versus Poly Foam Concrete Raising – Fact vs. Fiction

If you came here because you are interested in Poly Foam services to raise your concrete, you came to the right place.  With over 40 years experience, the Concrete Chiropractor® is here to help you make the right choice. We spent a year researching Poly Leveling and although we could offer it we decided NOT to offer it in our service line up.  Below are just some of the reasons why. We strongly suggest you use MUD to raise your concrete, not Poly Foam.


Advantages of Mud-Jacking Grout for Use in Slab Leveling White Paper

This paper presented by MATSLAB at the New Jersey Institute of Technology provides scientific information about both mudjacking grouts and poly-foams, as well as a discussion on the performance, recyclability, health and safety, and flammability of the materials. From the work presented herein, mud-jacking grouts are shown to be a better overall solution for slab leveling systems, particularly when the full life of the systems and environmental health and safety concerns are considered.

In an age of environmental consciousness, banning of other plastic products such as straws, plastic bags and styrofoam containers due to recycling challenges, portland cement based mudjacking grout should be the obvious choice over polyfoam.

Polyfoam Leveling Versus Mud
