Colorado School of Mines Short Course - Field Day Success!

During the first week of May 2017, both Avanti and our strategic partner Hess Pumice participated in the Underground Grouting and Ground Improvement Course at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. During the field day demonstrations, we had the opportunity to inject US Grout’s Ultrafine VX into two grout columns and Nittetsu’s Superfine injected into one of the columns.

Ultrafine Cement Grout Excels at Colorado School of Mines Field Day

It happens only once a year. Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO) hosts a week long short-course on grouting. It’s attended by Who’s Who in the geotechnical grouting industry.

On the afternoon of June 19, 2013, the school hosted a Field Day and participants were able to view a live demonstration of the permeability of different grouts through Sand Column Testing. I’m pleased to announce, US Grout’s Ultrafine Cement excelled over other cement grouts by reaching the top of the sand column (60 inches) in just 80 seconds. No other cement grout came close.

Lift Sunken Concrete Slabs with a Structural Foam

Many facility managers are unaware of the liabilities associated with trip hazards in public walkways, the excess wear and tear on forklifts from uneven industrial floors, or that SLAB LIFTING is possible with minimal interruption. Traditional mud jacking methods require drilling large holes in the slab to inject a cement slurry with a long cure time adding excess weight to unstable soils. And "jacking" does not address the cause of soil failure. Avanti's AV-600 SureLift™ reduces groundwater intrusion and erosion factors, fills voids, and provides a fast cure within 1/10" of desired grade.
