URETEK USA holds numerous patents in pavement lifting and soil stabilization. In fact, most of the polymer pavement lifting technology in use today originated at URETEK. We were the first to discover the power, stability and safety of using polymer foams to quickly, cleanly and accurately lift pavement slabs. We were the first to patent and use high-density polymers to stabilize sub-surface soils, at depth. URETEK USA holds the patent on one of the most unique, strongest, safest and efficient polymer foams in the industry - URETEK 486.

URETEK USA consistently reinvests in research and development to bring the best solutions to and maintain its leadership position in the marketplace. Solutions that drive down risk, cost and time to pavement lifting and soil stabilization problems, thereby putting you, the customer back in control. Attention to the customer, technology, safety and the environment has taken URETEK USA to its leadership position.

URETEK USA's engineered products, services and solutions bring unprecedented benefits in extending the life of highways, roads, runways, bridge approach and departure slabs and underground infrastructure, using environmentally safe, quick and precise solutions. Benefits such as:

  • Reduced Cost and Time: In some cases, up to 80% lower cost and as much as 90% reduced time versus traditional repair methods.
  • Least Disruption: Our crews complete the project, often in hours, versus the days or weeks using traditional methods. This means you can use your highway, road, runway, bridge approach/departure slab or underground infrastructure in as little as 15 minutes after application completion.
  • Predictable, Long-Lasting Repair: Our proven pavement lifting methods and technologies deliver results to 1/10' accuracy and our hydro-insensitive polymers ensure both integrity and longevity. Our method offers the greatest accuracy and our services and products virtually eliminate the problem from ever recurring.
  • Safety: Environmentally-safe products, fewer 'moving parts' on the job and professionally trained and certified personnel ensure a safe job, safe solutions, and safe results.

Whether you're a DOT, DPW, Bridge, Tunnel or Airport Authority, URETEK USA gives you control of your pavement lifting and soil stabilization problems through reduced cost, time and disruption. The life of your pavement and underground infrastructure assets is extended through use of:

  • Patented URETEK 486
  • Patented Deep Injection process
  • Patented Stitch-in-Time technology

2003 - URETEK's Deep Injection patent is issued in the United States and Canada. To find out more about how Uretek stabilizes and densifies soils at depth, click here.

2000 - URETEK introduced the Deep Injection Process, our proprietary system for increasing the bearing capacity of foundation soils for pavements, slabs and structures. This process utilizes specially selected polymer formulations to void fill, expand, and densify carefully identified low load-bearing compressible soil strata which may require attention.

1997 - URETEK patented a unique system for restoring load transfer and fast, permanent repair for jointed or cracked pavements. The URETEK Stitch-In-Time process also makes it easy to use precast concrete panels for full depth road repair, new roadway sections, and bridge decks.

1992 - URETEK established a nationwide network of engineering sales representatives to directly serve departments of transportation, cities and airport authorities more effectively.

1988 - URETEK USA, Inc. was granted the exclusive license rights for the sale of product and services in the United States and Mexico. With corporate headquarters in Houston, Texas, the company serves DOT, public works, commercial, industrial, and residential markets through a network of direct offices and authorized URETEK representatives.

1979 - URETEK advanced the equipment technology of total proportion and injection control of the product. After years of experimental development and technique modification, The URETEK Method was patented in the United States (U.S. Patent No. 4,567,708) and other countries around the world. Further patents have followed. Now, URETEK Worldwide offers direct service offices in 13 European countries, Turkey, Canada, Japan, South Korea and Australasia. URETEK companies worldwide have successfully completed over 75,000 concrete rehabilitation projects.

1975 - URETEK Finland began work with special formulations of high-density polymers. A limited number of specialized structural resin components were selected from a wide cross-section of possible blended characteristics. URETEK 486 - our brand name -was selected for this unique system of lifting and undersealing concrete.
