PolyPavement - Field Application Equipment

  PolyPavement spray-on and mix-in applications require no specialized tools or equipment. Tools and equipment are only needed for the following purposes:

1. Storing PolyPavement Soil Solidifier
2. Transferring PolyPavement from storage to application tanks
3. Spraying water and diluted PolyPavement Soil Solidifier
4. Tilling or mixing PolyPavement Soil Solidifier into soil
5. Grading, leveling and contouring the soil surface
6. Compacting the soil to the specified depth
7. Measuring areas and calculating quantities

The equipment is always selected to match the size and type of job. For example, a typical PolyPavement mix-in application requires 2 to 5 times more water than PolyPavement. If the project specifies that 500 gallons of PolyPavement be applied, it will require between 1,000 and 2,500 gallons of water for dilution. Obviously, this would not be a project for a back-pack sprayer. The point is to select an application or dilution tank with sufficient capacity to handle the volume of fluid to be applied.

Similarly, if a project specification called for PolyPavement to be mixed into the soil to a depth of 4 inches, it is obvious that the weight of the compactor must be sufficient to compact the soil thoroughly to the depth of 4 inches.

The following is a list of Application Equipment Packages to help the Applicator select the appropriate equipment for PolyPavement Applications based on the size or area of a given project. Upon selecting the appropriate equipment package, the applicator can expect to complete the project in minimal time. If equipment is selected other than that which is recommended for a job of a given size, then the estimated time required to complete a project of a given size will increase.
