POLYCOM USES


Pavement stabilisation:

Treating pavements with PolyCom Stabilising Aid delivers comparable results to traditional stabilising methods with regard to strength, but also imparts a high degree of water resistance and all important flexibility. It is significantly more cost effective, there are no cure-time constraints and the pavement is re-workable at anytime. All ground improvement work with PolyCom Stabilising Aid can be achieved using standard construction plant or stabilising machines.

Sub-grade improvement and capping:

PolyCom Stabilising Aid introduces water resistance, improved workability and increased strength, delivering a stronger, more resilient and environmentally sustainable platform for your project. Strengthened sub-grades deliver huge cost advantages by allowing more economic pavement designs and drainage options. Sub-grade capping substantially reduces, and can even eliminate, re-work from weather or traffic damage in cut to fill operations, again reducing project costs.

Wear course up-grade:

Wear courses on council roads, rural tracks and access roads all benefit from improvement with PolyCom. PolyCom can be incorporated into the pavement during a standard maintenance grade where remixing and re-shaping is performed. A PolyCom improved pavement will deliver extended service interval requirements with increased strength, a highly resilient surface and water resistance.

Dust and sediment control:

Tighter and more durable water resistant road surfaces produce much less fugitive dust and sediment run off to water ways. These improved surfaces are critical for the environment and are fast becoming the minimum requirement for all road builders involved in construction, energy, mining and local government. Road surfaces like this, created with PolyCom Stabilising Aid have a significantly reduced ecological impact, are not difficult to produce and are easily maintained with correct procedures.
