Soil Stabilization

Application Description

Polymer emulsion soil stabilization provides a cost-effective alternative to other methods. The technology uses in-situ soil, eliminating the need for importing quarried aggregates. Because of its brief curing time, it also allows roads to be opened to traffic much sooner than other construction methods.

MCP recommends styrene butadiene emulsions for dust suppression applications because of the excellent water resistance properties. MCP's styrene acrylic emulsion polymer has the ability to be blended with salt solutions. Application and cure rates are dependent on the soil composition and geographical location.
