Roadbond EN 1 Soil Stabilizer
Available from Roadbond Service Co.
ROADBOND EN 1 patented soil stabilizer fundamentally alters the ability of clay to hold adsorbed water, which is water held by electrical attraction. ROADBOND EN 1stabilizer causes clay to release weakly ionized water molecules from the clay matrix and replaces the water with strongly ionized sulfate radicals. The exchange is permanent and takes place at normal pH levels.
When mixed with base material and compatible in-place material, ROADBOND EN 1 stabilizer dissolves the mineral salts and natural cementitious properties of the soil. Mixing the soil disperses the dissolved material into the void spaces between the soil grains where it cures and crystallizes.
The re-crystallized mineral salts and natural cements form an effective bond that results in improved strength, load-bearing capacity and durability. The replacement of weakly ionized water molecules with strongly ionized sulfate radicals along with the increased dry density make the treated soil more resistant to water penetration. This reduces shrink-swell potential along with freeze-thaw damage.
ROADBOND EN 1 contributes to a sustainable environment in a number of important ways ROADBOND EN 1 uses less water, energy and lowers C02 emissions.
ROADBOND EN 1 saves time, money and natural resources.
