Why Crackerjack mud jacking does not use polyurethane foam

 
At Crackerkjack Mud Jacking, we do not use polyurethane foam. We are often asked why. The traditional sand & concrete slurry method of mud jacking is tried and true. It has been in use for Over 60 years. There is always the temptation to use a newer or “latest and greatest” method when one comes along in any field. We were tempted to change methods, as equipment used for polyurethane is much cheaper and far easier to transport. Before making the transition, we did some research, since we do not have a chemist or environmental expert on staff, we had to rely on government agencies and the industry professionals to reach a decision. Below, please find the statement of facts as provided by the Environmental Protection Agency and other experts. Direct links to these sites have been provided so you can read these findings for yourself. At Crackerjack Mud Jacking, we have no opinion on whether other companies should use this material and method of concrete repair, We Do, However, feel it would be irresponsible of OUR company to switch to this process, given the expert evidence that if may be detrimental to the health and safety of our valued customer and employees.
