The Claycrete (II) difference


MANY types of soils are high in clay content and typically not considered suitable for road constructi­on.

Clay is prone to swell and shrink based on the absence or pressure of water and this has people avoiding the use of clay in constructi­on.

An unstabilis­ed road can unravel on the top creating a dusty, unsafe and loose surface during dry conditions and sloppy, unpassable surface during wet conditions.

Claycrete ( II), as an ionic stabiliser, resolves this problem by altering the clay particles on a molecular level, permanentl­y changing the clay into an environmen­tally friendly binder of soil materials which no longer attracts water.

Long after the product has biodegrade­d, the clay remains in its stabilised state.

Claycrete ( II) stabilises clay into an almost dustless, stronger, safer surface for all weather conditions.

One of the Claycrete Australia’s recent projects in the City of Mandurah ( pictured), substantia­lly reduced constructi­on costs and solved a tidal intrusion problem due to the high- water level.

The nuclear density test results show an average of 101.7 per cent of maximum dry density ( MDD) which is well above average.
