The success of many paving projects relies on effective base stabilization and preservation of unpaved surfaces. When a roadbed is compromised or erodes from frequent rainfall or seasonal weather changes, it can cause significant problems which can incur significant costs.

Forming a stable matrix of aggregate rock and soil particles help to firm the roadbed to maintain its lifespan or prepare it for future paving. Volatile organic compounds were once very popular for accomplishing this task. Yet as time has gone on they have developed an increasingly negative reputation for their potential harm to the environment, as well as the safety measures required to apply them.

Fortunately, EnviRoad® offers Earthbind® Prime Coat as a cost efficient alternative to using VOC’s in base stabilization. This specially modified biopolymer base is designed to bind loose soil particles with aggregate materials in a matrix. Once it has been properly cured Earthbind® Prime Coat will not be water soluble.

Earthbind® Prime Coat is also cost effective, as it can be stored and transported in a concentration. This helps to save space and fuel costs if they can be diluted with water to the required concentration ratio shortly before application.
