PolyGel is a a two component product used to firstly neutralise the water absorbtion properties of clay and then to bind and stabilize the clay material into a bound and water resistant layer. PolyGel clay stabilizer is a purpose designed Smart Material polymer powder, which neutralizes and inhibits clay platelets from absorbing water. Once mixed into the clay, a polymer-clay composite is formed through the union of two very different materials with organic and mineral pedigrees. The hybrid composition properties, displays large increases in tensile strength as well as elastic modulus, while dramatically reducing water sensitivity.
Correct road design and drainage is importance.
