This product is only sold in full cases.  A case contains 15 bags.  Please order a minimum of 15 bags, and in multiples of 15.  The pricing shown is per bag.

This product is intended for use with the manual earth auger, part # AUG-EXT-KIT.  Or the EZ Dig Power Auger, part # EZ-DIG. Both of these augers produce a 4″ diameter hole.  This product CANNOT be used with standard post-hole diggers which create larger than a 4″ diameter hole.

This revolutionary, one-of-a-kind product was created with one goal in mind; simplify a difficult process satellite installers face daily.

Q-Set™ 250-750 is a hydrophobic two-part polyurethane Composite Backfill that expands to fill the peripheral void between a utility pole and the hole. It forms low-density, high-strength composite that can structurally support the pole and maintain its upright positioning.  It expands immediately after mixing and reaches 50% of full strength in approximately 3 minutes and is fully cured in approximately 2 hours.

Q-Set™ 250-750 significantly reduces labor requirements as no additional backfilling is required. If the pole is crane supported during installation, cranes can be removed as soon as 15 – 30 minutes after the composite stops expanding depending on the type of installation, the weather and soil condition. Note: Q-Set™ 250-750 users need to do their own testing to determine the support time required in their application conditions.

Q-Set™ 250-750 can be used to install new poles or provide a new solid foundation to straighten and stabilize a pole.


FOAM Benefits

  • Van and warehouse space savings. 1 bag of foam, less than 10”x10”, under 2 lbs., is equal to three 50lb bags of concrete.
  • Tech safety. The foam is lighter than concrete reducing physical stress on techs from van to dig site.
  • The earth auger and EZ-Dig are ergonomic, post hole diggers are not, again reducing physical stress on the tech.
  • Cured foam is non toxic & non hazardous.
  • Non corrosive.
  • Eco Friendly.
  • Prop 65 compliant.
  • When dried it is inert plastic, no different than millions of other plastic goods on earth.
  • Q-Set™ 250-750 is dielectric and its bond around a steel pole reduces the risk of premature corrosion that occurs because of stray DC current in the earth from sources such as a nearby DC transmission line, a mining operation…etc.   Also the closed cell structure of the foam prevents water from reaching the pole.
  • Because Q-Set™ 250-750 is hydrophobic (insensitive to water), the physical properties of the composite liquid, expanding and cured, will not be affected by wet soil or small amounts of standing water in the hole, as long as the standing water does not exceed 2” (5 cm) with the structure in the hole.
  • Bonds to the soil AND the pole to provide the best anchorage possible. Concrete is literally just a weight anchor and offers no bonding to soil or structure.
  • Reduces need for truck rolls as it cures in 15-30 minutes so you can mount the DISH instantly. Competitor’s cement takes much longer.
  • Per job time savings. You can install the foam, with the manual auger, in about 66% less time than the traditional concrete and post hole digger process. You can install with the EZ-Dig tool in about 90% less time.
  • Increased revenue. If the same job now takes less time, it is possible to get more jobs done in a day meaning more revenue.
  • Fuel savings. Taking concrete off the van and replacing with foam will reduce van weight by anywhere from 96 to 480 lbs. Over an entire fleet this savings is HUGE.
