HMI Hydrofoam Line

The Foam of Choice When Water is Present.

HMI is Proud to Introduce the BEST Hydro-Insensitive Foam on the Market

HMI foam is Hydro-insensitive because it forms high quality foam even in the presence of water. This includes during the injection, reaction, and curing phases. Foam that fails during the injection phase will leave the surrounding water cloudy, signifying that the raw chemicals have dissolved into the water. Foam that fails during the reaction phase simply won’t produce good foam. The foam may be left spongy, soft, and crumbly when water is present. Foam that fails in the curing phase won’t hold up. It may look like good foam at first, but will shrink over time.

HMI is proud to introduce the only true hydro-insensitive foam, a product that stands up in all three phases, the foam of choice for deep injection and seawall repair jobs.

HydroFoam was specially developed to resist hydrolysis- a chemical process in which water breaks down foam overtime causing the foam to shrink. Designed to not only set up in the presence of water, but to maintain dimensional stability. HMI’s hydro-insensitive foam holds up where other brands fail.

Seawall Repair with HydroFOAM

When you really think of it, water is the root cause of much of the concrete settlement problems with all your work. Poor drainage, voids with freezing water in winter, or countless other scenarios creating fallen or pitched concrete is what lifters and levelers address. In the case of sea walls the problem is on steroids as the concrete or stone barrier is perpetually pounded with tens of thousands of gallons or water with waves, wakes or currents. Often landslide runoff over and behind the wall has the water body reclaiming your customers property. Deterioration and the problems are often first visible as the ground caves in behind the wall and sink hole like depressions become evident.
