The article deals with the analysis of SPT® polyurethane materials and maintenance technologies based on them, and an analytical review of literature on the topic. Solidification with SPT® materials and technologies makes it possible to compact unstable foundation soils of structures and buildings. The solidification is implemened through a guided increase of polymeric material injected into a foundation. As a result, polymeric root-like reinforcing bodies are formed in the foundation, and the water is extruded out of the soil, thus considerably increasing the bearing capacity of the foundation. In order to assess the actual efficiency of the material the authors conducted the full-scale research into the general overhaul technology of the pipe culvert, the static and the dynamic tests on the models of solidified soil was conducted and compared with the results of the tests on the models of non-solidified soil. The authors investigated into the life ratio of SPT® material and the soil solidified with it. By comparing characteristics of SPT® materials and technologies with those of conventional materials, the basic analogies and differences were established. And the possibility to use them for construction, refurbishment and maintenance of rail facilities was determined.
