Penetration/Cap Grouting

Penetration cap grouting is a combined technique that integrates aspects of both penetration grouting and cap grouting to address specific geotechnical and structural challenges in construction projects. This hybrid approach involves injecting grout into the subsurface to stabilize soil layers while simultaneously sealing and reinforcing the upper portions of the foundation or concrete elements. By combining the benefits of both methods, penetration cap grouting offers a comprehensive solution for enhancing the load-bearing capacity of foundations, improving soil stability, and fortifying structural elements against environmental factors such as water ingress and corrosion.

The process of penetration cap grouting begins with the injection of grout into the soil or rock formation beneath the foundation or structural elements, effectively filling voids and compacting the surrounding material to increase its strength and stability. Simultaneously, grout is injected into the gap between precast concrete elements or around pile caps, columns, or beams, forming a protective barrier that seals potential pathways for water infiltration and reinforces the structural connections. This integrated approach ensures a holistic solution to foundation and structural stability, offering enhanced resilience and longevity to infrastructure projects in various environments and conditions.

For over 25 years, Lehigh Concrete Technologies has provided safe, innovative concrete and compaction grouting services to central and eastern Pennsylvania.
