Our internationally patented process for constructing polymer piles employs an array of special high density expanding polymers which are injected through a variety of lengths of injectors depending upon the depth of the pile to be constructed. In the case of a friction-like polymer pile, a hole of specified diameter is drilled to depth, filled with gravel and injected with our hydro-insensitive resin. As the resin mixture expands, voids between the gravels are filled and a controlled mold pressure is exerted completely binding the gravels with resultant break-points exceeding 1600 psi. In native soils which are highly non-cohesive (gravels) POLY-MOR resins can be injected directly into the native soils in a predetermined pattern and effectively construct “sheet- piling” structures to prevent sloughing or collapse. In a similar fashion anchoring or pinning systems can be constructed to prevent movement of base soils or structures on the base soils.
It is also noted that anchoring members into perma-frost or ice-lensed base soils solely with POLY-MOR resins results in an excellent highly insulated anchor thereby minimizing the risk of thermal degradation.
