PowerPile Increases House Lifetime with Minimal Environmental Disruption

Using PowerPile in house renovations has many times good value for the environment by extending house lifetime. The ecological stress for environment is just a fraction of traditional methods. The scientific studies proofs the environmental friendliness of PowerPile geopolymer.

The most significant benefit for environment is the PowerPile method's ability to solve the settlement problem economically, which was impossible with traditional methods. Repair of houses on thick clay areas would have been more expensive than the value of house and therefore the buildings were unrepairable and unlivable house is always a environmental problem.

Structurally rigid geopolymer

Firm and elastic geopolymer was tested on test sites and followed in three and five year time frames. The polymer didn't change it shape, although some color variation were noticed. When analyzing water dissolving there were no significant remnants in water.

The rigidity of geopolymer is documented comprehensively and the chemical resistance is mentioned in technical info. The resistance of geopolymer to chemical agents and dissolvents is good and resistance to oils excellent.

Hardened geopolymer is rigid and maintains its charasteristics in water with normal detergents, brines, acids or bases. Only very strong acids, like concentrated nitric acid and concentrated sulphuric acid might damage geopolymer. Polymer doesn't react with mold or fungus nor does it decay or change it shape. Insects and rodents don't eat geopolymer.



Minimal disruption

The project can be done without excavations and breaking of floors. The installation causes hardly any dust or noise problems. The project doesn't affect much to normal living. More PowerPile benefits
