There are times during many construction projects when you run across a problem that you did not anticipate. Often times, failing to quickly fix this problem threatens the entire project, and that may mean months of hard work go to waste. Obtaining the right materials for your construction projects' mishaps can take valuable time, but luckily, there is a product that can save many projects quickly and easily: TerraThane foam.

What is TerraThane?

TerraThane is a geo-technical polyurethane spray foam product that has a rigid, closed-cell structure. It is fully compatible with earth, and can be used to make trench barriers, pads and pillows. TerraThane comes in several different formulations, including a high altitude formation, so you can easily find a formula that works well for your project.

Applying TerraThane takes just minutes, and it cures quickly so you can get on with your project. Use it to seal unexpected holes, provide support when needed, and add stability to structures. The foam rigs are designed to be operated by just 2 people.

Benefits of TerraThane

In addition to being easy to apply at a moment's notice, TerraThane is environmentally responsible. It is more cost-friendly than typical sandbag construction, and it has been tested and meets ASTM requirements. TerraThane foam reaches 90% of its compression strength within 15 minutes of application, so you don't have to wait around for it to set as you would with concrete. It is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 180 F, and is resistant to many solvents.
