Modern civil engineering has used cement as the main stabilizer due to its excellent bonding properties. But it does not work on clay, sandy, muddy soil. In this case, besides better bonding, fill surfaces should be used. Only cement-treated soils become very rigid and the risk of cracking is very high. By using the StabilRoad® cement additive in a corresponding amount with the amount of cement, reduces significantly the risk of cracking. This is due to its ability to change the parameters of the concrete’s bending strength. StabilRoad® is today one of the most advanced and technologically most innovative soil stabilization material and technology in the world. StabilRoad® is a whitish powder made of 100% natural minerals with no synthetic chemicals. StabilRoad® technology has been developed in Germany and has been used for nearly 20 years in nearly all of the world’s climate zones.
The most important feature of technology is that by using the StabilRoad® additive and special technology we can significantly accelerate the construction process, reduce the cost of work, and at the same time achieve a very strong, elastic, waterproof and frost-proof surface. All this can be achieved by reusing local soil. The biggest advantage of such a stabilization method is that there is no need for the excavation of old soil, the disposal and the return of the new ground. Some hours after the necessary work can be done, the treated surface can be put into operation. Stabilizing with StabilRoad® technology, existing soil (including old asphalt), StabilRoad® and cement (Portland cement needed, clinker content> 95%) is mixed together. The StabilRoad® additive increases the process of cement hydration, in which cement particles form a reactive water by reacting new bonded compounds, which consists of a concrete skeleton. As a result of crystallisation, water-insoluble compounds are formed which make the treated layer non-water-absorbing. Increasing the cement hydration will reduce the amount of cracks caused by volume reduction and increasing the elasticity of the stabilized surface, compression and tensile strength, and the material becomes water- and frost resistant. The stabilized surface can be compared with concrete in its properties. Stabilizing with StabilRoad® is used instead of substrates and frost protection layers. StabilRoad®, each treated layer can also work well on the top layer of the coating on low-traffic roads. Depending on the field of application, a protective layer may be necessary, for example by coating or asphalting.
