is a liquid soil solidifier. The grounds-maintenance crew or a landscape
contractor installs it. The existing natural soil or decorative soils
such as decomposed granite or suitable fine particle sand may be used.
PolyPavement does not change the color of the soil. Natural Soil Pavement
is more than two times stronger than asphalt. It is not damaged by rain.
It supports heavy vehicles. And it requires little or no maintenance.
Foot-traffic areas, parking lots, service roads, etc. may be specified
to meet any and all design requirements.
PolyPavement is an esthetically pleasing alternative
to asphalt and concrete. With PolyPavement, the existing in-place soil
or a suitable imported soil is used for 98% of the pavement construction
material. There are many traffic area applications and non-traffic area
applications for PolyPavement. Consider these:
Performance The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers tested PolyPavements
natural soil pavement technology. Approximately 350 other methods and
materials were also tested by the Corps of Engineers.
passed all USACE performance criteria for rubber tire traffic and
non traffic applications in all climates. No other material performed
as well as PolyPavement and no other material had equivalent versatility,
easy installation or as low a cost. Based strictly on the performance test results, USACE recommends
PolyPavement for roads, helicopter landing pads, and other traffic
and non-traffic surfaces in desert, tropic and temperate climates.
No other method or material was recommended as highly.

PolyPavement may be installed by the maintenance
crew utilizing readily available equipment.
Simply dilute it with water and spray it onto compact soil; or mix it
into loosened soil and compact it. A roto-tiller, a smooth drum compactor
and a dilution tank with hose & nozzle are recommended. PolyPavement
does not damage equipment. Easy-to-follow application instructions are
provided. Unused portions of PolyPavement soil solidifier can be stored
in the drums and used whenever needed for small or large areas.
One inch of PolyPavement is more
supportive than one inch of asphalt. Inch for inch, PolyPavement costs
significantly less than asphalt. Spray-on applications of PolyPavement
are effective for light traffic areas. Spray-on applications of PolyPavement
are less than one-half inch thick, for outstanding cost effectiveness.
requires little or no maintenance. If damage occurs from spikes or other
point forces, it is repaired easily by filling the holes with a pourable
mixture of PolyPavement and the natural soil or patching by spreading
and compacting a drier PolyPavement and soil mix into the damaged area.
never needs to be removed and replaced as with asphalt and concrete.
Instead, after it wears, more PolyPavement can be applied on top of
old PolyPavement inexpensively to extend the life of a Natural Soil
Pavement application indefinitely.
PolyPavement is non-toxic to plants and animals. It has been tested and proven safe for sensitive aquatic life. It does
not leach into the ground water. PolyPavement may be applied in environmentally
sensitive areas without worry or concern. PolyPavement is 100% acrylic polymers and it contains absolutely no carcinogenic acetate or chloride polymers.
PolyPavement may be specified on construction
plans by using one of the construction
plan specifications provided by PolyPavement. Simply call out the
recommended PolyPavement Application Method, and specify the in-place or imported soil material that meets the architect's or the owner's esthetic requirements.
