Cement stabilization allows roads that have been badly damaged to be shored up and rebuilt, saving time and money for customers dealing with unstable roadways or parking lots.
Local roads in the Marcellus Shale region of Pennsylvania were being damaged by heavy trucking when PennDOT and local municipalities turned to this process. Instead of excavating the roads and installing a new stone sub-base, crews add a stabilization agent, usually cement, into the recycled asphalt base. Blacktop or a surface treatment was then laid on top. The process saved significant time and materials.
With our Terex RS600 Reclaimer/Stabilizer, we can stabilize soil so it can be used for construction. If you have a badly damaged road with an insufficient base, cement stabilization may be a good option. Other additive options include introducing lime or injecting emulsified asphalt into the reclaimed base. We are happy to answer any questions regarding the process and its potential benefits.
