Is PolyLevel Environmentally Friendly?

Environmental Impact of PolyLevel_1080x1080 (2)

We've all seenPolyLevelvideos on YouTube: heavy sunken concrete driveway slabs moving back up to their original position as if lifted by some supernatural force. It's fun and fascinatingto watch.

So, what's the catch? Is it expensive? No, not particularly.Is it rare?Actually, wearean exclusivedealer!

Aha! It's probably bad for the environment, right?

Actually, no.

HowPolyLevelInteractsWiththe Environment

PolyLevelfoam is a lightweight, durable and, above all, amazingly strong high-density polyurethane foam.The reason it works so well is, it runs like water when first injected under concrete, finding even the smallest crevices. But then itquicklyexpands, and the force of that expansion is enough to lift those heavy concrete slabsback to their original positions. And,whenPolyLevelcures, it cures basically forever.

High-density polyurethane foams such asPolyLevelhave beenthe subject of several studiesover the years, including one conducted bythe Department of Energy (DOE), and they've found a couple of interesting things:

  • PolyLevelis a non-ozone depleting two-part polyurethane foam that ischemicallyinert once itcures. That means,once itsets, it does not react with anything around it, soitwon'tleach into the soil or otherwiseimpartchemicals into the environment.
  • PolyLeveldoes not biodegrade. This means it doesn't break down over time and affect the environment around it. It is also highly resistant to microbialattackdue to its chemical and physical structure.
  • PolyLevelprovidesnonutritional value, and as such, it is not likely to be broken down by animals or insects.
  • While polyurethanes can degrade over time when exposed to UV radiation, becausePolyLevelis never exposed to sunlight, this is not an issue.

Basically, once it cures,PolyLevelis no different, from an environmental point of view, than the concrete it stabilizes.

PolyLevelHelps Reduce Wasteand Pollution

One of the best things aboutPolyLevel, though, is that it helps keep tons of concrete out of our landfills - literally. Think about it; if your driveway is cracked and sunken, your two main options are to repair or replace it.PolyLeveloffers a fantastic solution for the first option. But when you replace a driveway (or any concrete), you not only have to wait a week or more for it to cure, but all that old concretemustbejackhammered intosmallerpieces, torn out and hauled off to the local landfill, where it will remain for pretty much the rest of time.

Then there's the problem of new concrete. Did you know that, after water, concrete is the most consumed material on the planet?And,concrete production is the source of a huge amount of greenhouse gasses, which are a primary driver of climate change.Then there'sthe damage to the environment caused by mining the raw materials that make it up.

When you repair your driveway, sidewalkor patio withPolyLevel, you're not only keeping old, broken concrete out of the landfill, you're also reducing the need for new concrete to be produced. And that's a good thing forthe entire planet.

In the end,PolyLevelallows you tolift and permanentlystabilize your concrete while helping reduce waste and pollution.See? No catch!
