How it Works
GEOMAX uses a geotechnically engineered subgrade treatment that alters the chemical composition of the soil particles. It can turn wet, muddy or otherwise unsuitable subgrade into dry, stable, ready-to-pave subgrade within 24 hours. Three to four hours after application, the mixture is hard – and it continues to gain strength for 28 days.
The GEOMAX soil stabilization process blends Class C self-cementing fly ash (a coal combustion by-product), kiln dust, quicklime or cement powder into the soil to bond soil particles. Fly ash can be used as a drying agent for saturated soils because it helps reduce the moisture content and allows for compaction – resulting in a more stable base. The fly ash reduces the plasticity characteristics of the soil and cements the soil particles together, which reduces the swelling of expansive soils.
Fly ash contains tricalcium aluminate, which is very reactive with water. It provides immediate strength gains to the soil. The modified soil can be used in the remediation of a subgrade or is especially useful in backfilling utility trenches where proper density can’t be attained.
