Airport Pavement Stabilization
Poor base and subgrade soils can wreak havoc on a roadway or slab, causing a variety of issues such as cracking, rutting and severe pavement settlement. The root of the soil degradation could be caused by:
- Improperly compacted soils beneath the roadway
- Water infiltration through pavement cracks resulting in soil washout
- Roadway widening that did not address soil conditions for new design
- Heavier loads than originally designed for
- Failing sewer systems underneath the pavement causing soil loss
- Zero daytime lane closures
- Removal of remaining viable pavement and poor foundation soils is not required
- Overlay to correct rutting can be performed immediately following the polymer injection into the soils
- Extends the life of a new overlay
- Our hydro-insensitive polymers will push out the water in wet soil conditions while still compacting and densifying the soil
- Compact the loose foundation soils without uneven lifting of the flexible pavement to provide sufficient support of the pavement surface.
- Continued injection into the soils can lift the pavement system if needed.
- Lifting of the rutting is NOT possible.
- Surface cracks will still need to be sealed by traditional methods to mitigate water infiltration into the system.
