Characteristics of natural soil before stabilization

Soil stabilization is a method of improving unstable sub-base (surface) that, when hardened, will form the carrying layer or pavement of the road. Compaction and hardening of soil is a consequence of permanent changes in the strength between bonding of soil aqueous particles (colloids) – capillary forces between particles are widely disrupted.

 
The penetration depth of STABIBUD-1® will be retarded only if the solution meets a perfectly dry layer with no flows of horizontal groundwater or capillary phenomena. Subsoil is made permanently resistant to destructive ingression of water and frost, demonstrating properties of elastic layers which prevents upper layers of the pavement structure from cracking and deformation (formation of ruts). Road carrying capacity is thus much enhanced.


In soils where STABIBUD-1® can be applied, durability increases respectively: E1 ≥ 120 MPa and E2 ≥ 200 MPa, or even E2 to 450 MPa.

 
Another advantage of using STABIBUD-1® is enhancing the soil ability to bind up volatile constituents or hazardous petrochemicals (e.g. petrol, crude oil, oils) with soil particles which reduces high level of contaminants, forms material similar to sedimentary rocks and keeps hazardous substances from leaching out into ground water or adjacent soil.
