WV Pipeline Trench Breakers

1,400 ft of pipeline trench breakers, pillows, and pads on a 58-degree hillside slope 
About The Project
Contractor All Seasons Foam and Coatings Services
Project Location Pine Grove, WV
Product Used Strat-Fill 24-023


  • The contractor needed pipeline pads and pillows for 1,400 feet of pipeline on a 58-degree hillside in rural West Virginia in challenging weather conditions.
  • Traditional solutions, such as sandbags, were difficult to transport and presented long-term risk due to erosion and decay of sandbags over time
  • Installation and labor safety concerns over constant rain and severe erosion of freshly turned earth


  • The contractor selected the Strata-Fil 24-023 Trench Break polyurethane Winched small box truck up the mountain to construct the hand-sprayed ‘pads and pillows’ with an impingement gun
  • Material could be installed during inclement weather, due to fast cure time and minimal labor requirements

  • Achieves great lift thickness without scorching or splitting
  • High Resistance to Solvents and Low Water Absorption
  • Environmentally Inert
  • Small Project Footprint
  • Conformability to voids and cavities
  • Small Installation Team
