What is Claycrete (II)™
Fire & Emergency Services of WA Commissioned Claycrete Australia
to build an 1800sqm helipad for Canada's $24m Fire Water Bomber
located in Perth. The water table was only 300mm below surface
but the 300mm pad of clay is impervious to water and is as solid as
concrete without the fear of cracking under load due to the
pliability of the clay
Testimonial from Fire & Emergency Services of WA
Claycrete (II)™ is a liquid compound additive which reacts with only the clay fraction of a material (ionic stabilisation). Long after the product has biodegraded the clay will remain in its stabilised state. The improved properties of the insitu clay soils make it suitable for use in a higher range of road materials thus proving to be very cost effective.
Clay has been stabilised in the past by the use of cement and/or lime but this process is expensive and application and mixing is difficult.
Claycrete (II)™ is unique because the stabilisation does not depend on the presence of a residual product. After the reaction period is completed the stabilised clay is the remaining binder.
Purpose of Claycrete (II)™
Many types of soils available through the world 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.
Claycrete (II) ™ resolves these problems by altering the clay particles on a molecular level, permanently changing the clay into an environmentally friendly binder of soil materials which no longer attract water.
Claycrete (II) ™ allows the clay particles to permanently break their bond with water. Once this happens, the clay particles can be compacted very tightly, binding all other soil materials.
Further treatment of the Claycreted Helicopter Pad shows evidence of total dust suppression using our Roadseal product.
Claycrete (II)™ - Zero Harm
SGS Certificate Achieves Highest International Standards
Established in 1878, SGS has become the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. SGS is recognised as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. With more than 85,000 employees, SGS operate a network of more than 1,800 offices and laboratories around the world www.sgs.com.
SGS has tested Claycrete (II) ™ under OECD guidelines No 423: Acute oral toxicity Determination (LD50)..acute toxic method of the OECD guidelines for testing of Chemicals (2001) with a slight modification in terms of increasing doses.
There were no negative results nor adverse discoveries in the laboratory trial conducted over a 3 month period.
The permanent stabilisation of clay in soils with zero harm making Claycrete (II) ™ environmentally sensitive and affordable.
Note: Imitations and similar products will not be able to produce this certification.
A typical gravel rural road. Constantly unravelling on top and creating a dusty, unsafe and loose surface during dry conditions and a sloppy (at times unpassable) surface during wet conditions. Claycrete (II)™ stabilises clay into an almost dustless but stronger and safer surface for all weather conditions.
Rain has no effect on the stability of the road
Claycrete Australia was commissioned to stabilise a 1 in a 100 year flood damaged runway in the Pilbara. The soil is a mixture of light clay and limestone which was stabilised by a large Wirtgen Reclaimer.
The reclaimer, joined at the rear by a push bar is automatically fed water / Claycrete (II) mixture by the water truck as it is being pushed along by the reclaimer. The result of this method is more efficient water usage and a far better mix over the entire site.
