There have been many posts explaining why the improved density of RoadCem soil stabilisation improves stiffness and reduces risk of cracking. We have never though mentioned how RoadCem increases impermeability. A factor of growing importance in these days of extreme weather where protection from flooding and storage of water will become more critical.
Attached is an excellent technical study originally published in Spanish which shows whilst cement alone can achieve strength targets, it fails to meet the important permeability criteria.
If you are currently working on the planning/development of reservoirs, wetlands and/or flood defence schemes you should consider talking to our engineers about our sustainable plastic and stone free solutions. Currently in use in other parts of the world.
