Polyurethane Injection System
Colossus® PU 2K 1601 is a quick reacting two component polyurethane injection resin for durable sealing and stabilization of dry and water – bearing zone in rock mass , dams , tunnels , canals , shaft and soil below the foundation . Colossus® PU 2K 1601 is characterized by it’s short reaction time, and high final strength , it shows slight foam formation when mixed with water .
Given free expansion material increases it’s volume by about 3 times. The reaction mixture cures with out foam formation to form a pore free , compact and highly solid material if it does not come in contact with water and renders the structure watertight. Reacts with water forming a rigid hydrophobic foam that encapsulates grains of soils. Colossus® PU 2K 1601 is used for ground stabilisation. Besides giving stability it is also often used to restrain water bearing layers in the soil.

- Maximum operating pressure 230 bar
- Air consumption at 6 m³/min ( 212 CU ft /min).
- Maximum air intake pressure 8 bar -
- Total weight approx. 90 kg
The working principle of the Colossus® PN – 2K F1 is based on two regenerative, air-operated piston pumps. A compressor with an air output of 200 – 400 l/min. is required for operating the pump. The individual components are introduced to the mixing head separately. The actual mixing process is implemented by means of a static mixer located in the mixing head. Check valves prevent the components from flowing back into the feed tubes and thus avoid all accidental reactions within the feed system.

EPB Soil Conditioning Foams
Foam HG is a high performance foaming agent, formulated with special natural polymers and biodegradable anionic surfactants. It produces very stable foams and can be used both with clean and salted water, even with high hardness and is characterized by minimal environmental impact.
Foam HG has a high strength and good lubricating properties, improve substantially the carrying capacity of the resulting materials (debris) allowing, thus, obtaining a cleaner excavation area. Such benefits may also increase with small additions of polymer Acryl 46. It can be injected into any type of terrain, including fractured and very permeable, prevents agglomeration of the clay and prevent blockages in the shield and in the chamber excavation of EPB machines. it reduces, thanks to the power of lubrication, the friction between the soil and digging equipment, significantly lowering the level of wear and increasing the efficiency of the machine. It lends itself also as a valuable additive against dust, especially during excavations in the coal mines. Foam HG is quickly biodegradable and not pollutant for environment.
Foam HG should be mixed with water in concentrations ranging from 1,5% to 4%, according to the conditions of excavation and soil type and the types of foam generator.
In each case the values of expansion foam should be developed on site to verify the correct ratio between foam injected and the excavated product according to the various conditions of pressure.
In principle, one can establish the following concentrations:
as a foaming agent (to EPB)
- normal ranges: 1.5% – 3%
- below the water table: 3% – 4%
As an agent against dust: 4.3%
Appearance colorless or slightly yellowish transparent liquid medium viscous

EPB Soil Conditioning Polymers
Acryl 46 is a liquid polymer synthetic high molecular weight, formulated with special copolymers acrylamide / sodium acrylate, suitable treatment of the sludge in preparation work drilling land and civil engineering. Acryl 46 also has a high power lubricant battery against drilling reducing friction and wear torsion. Acryl 46 is as translucent milky liquid medium viscosity, extremely easy to disperse in water, which hydrolyzes forming solutions clear and highly viscous. It does not presents dangers of toxicity and flammability. Acryl 46 may also find use as a stabilizer and thickener foam products in our foaming Foam HG.
