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.
