The result is a soil stable material that is much less sensitive to moisture, more workable and which can be compacted to a better particle-interlock state by equipment and traffic forces, increasing the bearing and load capacity for a long usable road live
Better particle-interlock means higher internal friction and improved bearing capacity.
It also means greater density and less penetration of water.
The effect of CBR PLUS on clay materials is permanent.
CBR PLUS will treat a wide spectrum of materials ranging from clays and silty sands to gravel. The materials must display some cohesive properties (i.e., contain some clays or plasticity).
Roads treated with CBR PLUS turn from mud surfaces into roads that are trafficable in wet weather.
Use of CBR PLUS Liquid Soil Stabilizer
CBR PLUS allows engineers to use in-situ material in either single or multi-layer pavement by reducing the importation of materials from unsightly and environmentally degrading borrow pits; thus minimizing the environmental degradation
Advantages of using CBR PLUS:
- Improves workability of soils.
- Increases density.
- Increases soil shear strength.
- Long term soil stabilization
- Reduces construction and repair costs.
- Reduces dust on unpaved roads.
- Reduces maintenance on rural and unpaved roads.
- Reduces the lost of gravel added on top of the surfaces
- Reduces the re-absorption of water
- Saves haulage on borrow material.
CBR PLUS has been used extensively in many countries to overcome the problems of rural road construction using material of quality for the layers of the pavement of the ways. The costs of the construction and maintenance of the roadways dealt with CBR PLUS can save abundant amounts of money, which is translated in more kilometers of roadways constructed with the same budget.
CBR PLUS nature and characteristics; liquid soil stabilizer
CBR PLUS it transforms clays of nature hydrophilic of the ground into clays of hydrophobic nature, making an ion exchange with the clay particle that repels water molecules permanently absorbed.
CBR PLUS generates a great cohesion between microscopic particles that they avoid that the smallest particles follow (dust).
CBR PLUS has the following physio-chemical properties:
- Non-Toxic and safe.
- Totally water soluble with no solid residue.
- Unlimited shelf life.
- User and environment friendly.
CBR PLUS is a highly concentrated liquid, of which 100 liters will treat between 4,000 to 20,000 square meters of soil to a depth of 15 cm when diluted with water. Because of its concentrated form, transport costs for the product to remote sites worldwide is low when considering the length of road that can be treated.
