Natural Soil Stabilizer
ECMASTAB 99 is an environmentally compatible Soil Stabilizer and consolidator composed of selected inorganic oxides and inert polymeric fibers. ECMASTAB 99 has negligible environmental impact compared to conventional consolidation using concrete composed of inert matter and cement or lime and sometimes involving paving with a layer of asphalt. Addition of ECMASTAB 99 to the soil alone is sufficient to guarantee compactness and durability of gravel roads without altering their color or the ecological qualities of the “soil system”, at a lower cost than conventional solutions (concrete – asphalt paving).ECMASTAB 99 can be used with ordinary equipment available on site, cutting costs and meeting technical specifications – something that cannot always be done with conventional stabilization methods.
• Improve the geo-mechanical resistance of the mix (cohesion, internal friction angle, soil bearing capacity, resistance to water and frost) • Stabilize the properties of the mix over time in spite of changing environmental conditions, humidity, ageing, etc. • Stabilize the properties of the mix over time in spite of changing environmental conditions, humidity, ageing, etc. • Reduce swelling resulting from changes in water content • Improve durability in use • increase the workability of the soil to a high percentage for very fine soil • Increase resistance to freezing and defrosting • Graduate hardening reactions • ECMASTAB 99 is particularly effective with limey and clayey soils (that is, soils with poor geo-mechanical properties), with which it interacts • On both the physical and the chemical levels, forming a final product capable of meeting the requirements of technical specifications.
