Innovative Polyurethane Product Use Draws Crowd at 31st Annual Colorado School of Mines Course

October 15th, 2010

MOUNTY AIRY, NC—NCFI Polyurethanes, a leading national polyurethane products manufacturer, drew a crowd by demonstrating innovative uses of their products for the geotechnical industry at the 31st Annual Short Course on Grouting Fundamentals at the Colorado School of Mines in June.

“I was pleasantly surprised by the degree of interest,” says Patrick Burchett, senior account manager Geo-Tech Products for NCFI. “Building owners, geotechnical contractors and engineers came from all over to see this presentation. Our polyurethane products are making a name for themselves and being used for all kinds of geotechnical solutions: trench breakers for pipelines, road and bridge repair, airport taxiway repair, but our concrete and mining product uses are quickly becoming a big deal.”

NCFI was the only polyurethane product manufacturer selected by course organizers to speak about, and give a hands-on demonstration, of the company’s innovative uses of polyurethane products. Burchett demonstrated how NCFI’s TerraThane systems are being used for concrete lifting and void filling of concrete slab sections. “Our TerraThane systems are being used successfully with residential, commercial and industrial applications and for restoring and repairing concrete road sections on highways, airport tarmacs and parking lots, and as recently seen on the television show, Dirty Jobs, is an excellent way to close and permanently seal old mines, or unused shafts.”

“Word is quickly getting out that TerraThane is an ideal product for geotechnical applications. I venture to say NCFI is the most knowledgeable company in this industry, and offers the most diversified product line and technical support. Our 40 plus years of experience give us a clear advantage for helping those with geotechnical needs find the very best solutions.”
