AquaBlok is a patented 'composite particle technology' that utilizes a central core (typically stone aggregate) to deliver various fine-grained coating materials for a broad range of environmental applications. The particles act as a 'delivery system' – placing active ingredients through a water column or to target locations apt to come into contact with water.
Since the mid-1990s the technology has been applied to a wide range of industries and environments to address an equally diverse array of technical challenges. Among other applications, AquaBlok and its family of products are being used as:
AquaBlok, Ltd. manufactures and distributes AquaBlok products for all applications. Adventus Americas, Inc. provides consultation for special blends of AquaBlok reactive sediment caps and applications of standard AquaBlok for environmental remediation projects, and is a distributor of AquaBlok products for environmental remediation projects.

Many waterways, independent of size and function, are constructed in porous or permeable soils that are not adequately compacted or amended during construction to reliably hold water. Even when soil basins or synthetic 'liners' are properly prepared from the onset, a variety of environmental factors (e.g. repeated freeze/thaw cycles, prolonged desiccation, pockets of more permeable soils, animal damage, and even subtle seismic activity) can compromise ...
Traditionally, “anti-seep collars” made of a variety of materials (rubber, PVC, plastics, etc.) have been recommended and installed as impermeable diaphragms that encircle the pipe. While these structures are intended and often do prevent wash-out, uniform compaction of the soil around the collar can be difficult or impossible, depending on soil characteristics. An installer often has to choose either to minimize compaction, so as not to ...
