  • Geotechnical Applications

    The unique physical attributes of AquaBlok – both in its dry and in its hydrated state – have made it a highly versatile material for an equally diverse array of geotechnical applications. The base product’s composition is simple: powdered bentonite wrapped around a stone core. But this unique combination of raw ingredients and all its variations – e.g. particle size, various percentages of clay and stone, and even inclusion of treatment additives – allow for use i

  • Cut-Off Walls

    Cut-Off Walls

    The traditional liquid slurry trench method is well known for creating hydraulic barriers and has been used for decades to stem the flow of subsurface water and water-borne contamination. In many cases, a backfill material with more structural strength is desired, particularly where subsurface flow rates are high or in earthen dams or dikes where loads must be supported.

  • Anti-Seep Collars/Plugs

    Anti-Seep Collars/Plugs

    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...

  • Trench Dams

    Trench Dams

    With typical formulations ranging in size from ¼” to ¾” (in diameter), AquaBlok looks, feels, and handles – at least before it gets wet, that is – much like any crushed stone that would be used to bed a pipe. The difference lies in AquaBlok’s unique veneer of bentonite that wraps each individual stone. Working together, the stone and the clay offer a pourable fill that “self-compacts” when...
