Polysoil D150 presentation

  1. 1. Shaun McHaffie [email_address] Soil Stabilization and Polymer Road Building Technology Cell No:+27 (0) 83 425 3374 Introduces
  2. 3. Support Earth Ethix Group (Pty) Ltd. A dedicated ethical company with the capacity and commitment to take on the world’s road infrastructure challenges an African Product for African Solutions!
  3. 4. “… What road builders dream about and never achieve…” ‘ what road builders dream about and never achieve’……….CIVILAB CIVIL ENGINEERING TESTING LABORATORIES ‘ For the toughest base layer available in road construction’
  4. 5. The Solution To Road Infrastructure Challenges Road – Prieska, Northern Cape
  5. 6. Base layers are the foundation <ul><li>Fast </li></ul><ul><li>Cost effective </li></ul><ul><li>Extremely Durable </li></ul><ul><li>Absolute minimum maintenance </li></ul><ul><li>Skills Transfer </li></ul>FROM SOIL TO SEAL
  8. 10. The Product <ul><li>Polysoil D150 is 100 % South African </li></ul><ul><li>Non-toxic and environment friendly </li></ul><ul><li>Advanced Polymer based technology </li></ul><ul><li>Superior through aggressive dedicated research </li></ul><ul><li>Specifically formulated for the Roads industry </li></ul>Eco-Friendly
  9. 11. <ul><li>Studies in 1998 found that this polymer based technology “significantly increased the strength of the soil stabilization process in Road Construction” – thereby improving the entire road quality where Polysoil D150 is used. </li></ul><ul><li>Polysoil D150 is a fast effective, durable alternative for the Roads Industry </li></ul><ul><li>Continued aggressive Research & Development has produced a superior product, being Polysoil D150 </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>Polysoil D150 works on a wide variety of materials and most in-situ soil types </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces the need to bring in expensive quarry materials </li></ul><ul><li>Does not contain any toxins or hazardous material – its safe for humans to handle </li></ul><ul><li>Productivity and Delivery at rapid rates - minimum disruption to traffic – no detours required </li></ul><ul><li>Exceeds the Roads Industry requirements for UCS and CBR </li></ul><ul><li>The Polysoil D150 bond prevents loss of soil through erosion – no wash away of valuable soil </li></ul><ul><li>Minimal maintenance required </li></ul><ul><li>Eco-friendly – will not harm the environment </li></ul>Application Eco-Friendly
  11. 13. Construction with Polysoil D150 <ul><li>Using a </li></ul><ul><li>Grader, rip </li></ul><ul><li>the area to </li></ul><ul><li>a depth of </li></ul><ul><li>150mm </li></ul>
  12. 14. <ul><li>Windrow to break up clods and remove large rocks and stones by hand - local labour . </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  13. 15. <ul><li>Load Polysoil D150 in a Water Cart, add water and spray the mixed content onto the road surface. </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  14. 16. <ul><li>Mix the product in with the blade of the grader </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  15. 17. <ul><li>Add water to adjust </li></ul><ul><li>the moisture content </li></ul><ul><li>of the material to </li></ul><ul><li>approximately 1% </li></ul><ul><li>above OMC (Optimum </li></ul><ul><li>Moisture Content) and </li></ul><ul><li>mix again </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  16. 18. <ul><li>Alternatively use state of the art equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>The Wirtgen WR 2000 – for increased production </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  17. 19. <ul><li>Level the mixed material, profile and shape the road and compact the surface </li></ul><ul><li>(local labour) </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  18. 20. <ul><li>The road is now ready for a bitumen or asphalt seal of choice with the </li></ul><ul><li>toughest base layer available </li></ul>Construction with Polysoil D150
  19. 21. <ul><li>The “Superior Product” claims are supported </li></ul><ul><li>by independent tests conducted by Civilab (Pty) Ltd. </li></ul><ul><li>(CIVILAB is joint owned by international Consulting Engineering Firms) </li></ul><ul><li>A G7 material with an overall P.I. Described as </li></ul><ul><li>“ slightly plastic” (linear shrinkage of 0.5) was </li></ul><ul><li>tested with Polysoil D150 by Civilab. </li></ul><ul><li>The results were described by Civilab as: </li></ul><ul><li>“… What road builders dream about and never achieve…” </li></ul>
  20. 22. Independent tests
  21. 23. Laboratory Test Summary Using G7
  22. 24. Laboratory Tests UCS After 7 Days
  23. 25. Laboratory Tests CBR after 60 Days
  24. 26. <ul><li>Marginal and normally ‘discarded materials’ can now be used for Road Construction with </li></ul><ul><li>Polysoil D150 </li></ul>
  25. 27. <ul><li>Cement stabilization requires a curing period of 7 days which involves a chemical bonding process </li></ul><ul><li>Polysoil D150 has a mechanical bonding process requiring compaction – the more compaction, the better. It can never be over-compacted and can be opened to traffic immediately after compaction </li></ul><ul><li>No detours required – depending on conditions and equipment, up to 2km of road (6m wide) per day can be stabilized and opened to traffic. </li></ul>
  26. 28. <ul><li>Downward migration qualities of Polysoil D150 stabilizes double the treated depth </li></ul><ul><li>Polysoil D150 covers a wide range of materials and can be used to stabilize most in-situ materials, therefore cutting out the need to bring in expensive quarry materials </li></ul>Illustration of core sample 150mm Polysoil D150 treated layer 150mm untreated layer (also stabilized through migration of Polysoil D150
  27. 29. <ul><li>Regardless of the material grading (G1 – G10) Polysoil D150 can be used on soils with a P.I. Ranging from ‘Slightly Plastic’ (P.I. <3 – 15) without modification to achieve results in excess of minimum required road construction standards </li></ul><ul><li>The soil is tested for compatibility in our laboratory and recommendations made. </li></ul>
  28. 30. <ul><li>Once stabilized, a traditional seal – Chip & Spray, Double Seal, Cape Seal, Premix, Asphalt or a clear seal can be applied </li></ul><ul><li>The process to construct 1km x 6m wide road using the Polysoil method – from ripping the roadbed to finished seal (wearing course) can take as little as 5 days to complete (depending on the location, conditions and type of seal) </li></ul>
  29. 31. <ul><li>To utilize Local Emerging Contractors or preferred vendors as far as possible to achieve ‘Supervising Engineer’ status </li></ul><ul><li>To train & transfer skills to operators & certify them once familiar with the construction process. </li></ul>Our Commitment
  30. 32. We will support and assist governments to achieve their short and long term goals in line with Skills Development by implementing the Polysoil method to deliver Durable roads with Minimum Maintenance, Quickly and without Delays to benefit all
