Epoxy vs Polyurethane Chemical Grout

“… They don’t know chemical Grout…”

Not all specifying engineers are familiar with the multitude of chemical grout products and injection techniques and how to use them correctly. As a contractor you should always voice your concerns. Occasionally the engineers need to be educated to specify the correct product for the job on hand.

John touches on the specific differences between epoxy injection and polyurethane chemical grout injection and when to use which product.

Thank you John for being a guest on our show!
