Concrete Industry Facts

  • Concrete is the most widely consumed substance on Earth besides water.
  • If the Portland cement industry were a country, it would be the third largest CO2 emitter on the planet, behind only the US and China. (Portland cement is the stuff that holds concrete together.)
  • The cement industry produces 4.5 billion tons of material every year.
  • Concrete production uses a lot of water.
  • By 2050, 75% of the water demand for concrete production will likely occur in regions that are expected to experience water stress.

How do I fix my broken, sunken concrete?

PolyLevel foam is incredibly light and strong. So strong, it can lift broken, sunken slabs of concrete up to their original positions while compressing the unstable soil beneath it. This means PolyLevel not only fixes your driveway, patio or pool deck but also fixes the soil conditions that likely caused the problem in the first place.

PolyLevel Reduces Waste and Carbon Emissions

Fixing your existing concrete with PolyLevel foam has two positive environmental effects:

Waste basket green
It prevents your old concrete
from ending up in a landfill.
CO2 Emitter green
It reduces demand for new concrete - one of
the worst emitters of CO2 on the planet.

For more on this topic, check out our Ask an Engineer episode that explains why repairing your concrete is better for the environment than replacing it.

PolyLevel Is Environmentally Friendly

High-density polyurethane foams such as PolyLevel have been the subject of multiple scientific and regulatory studies over the years, and they’ve found:

Repel Moisture green
PolyLevel is chemically inert once it cures. That means that once it sets, PolyLevel does not react with anything around it, so it won’t leach into the soil or otherwise impart chemicals into the environment.
Envionment smoke green
PolyLevel does not biodegrade. This means PolyLevel doesn’t break down over time and affect the environment around it.
Not Nutritional green
PolyLevel provides no nutritional value, so it is unlikely to be broken down by animals or insects.
UV Resistant green
PolyLevel won’t photodegrade. Polyurethanes can degrade over time when exposed to UV radiation, but because PolyLevel is never exposed to sunlight, this is not an issue
