Introduction to polymer pavements
Polymer Pavements focuses exclusively on manufacturing polymer products for use in road construction and for dust suppression. Polymer technology is nothing new and has been commercially available in various forms for more than a 100 years. Today, we are surrounded by polymers in all aspects of our lives, from food stuffs, paints, plastics, to kevlar bullet proof vests. However, the use of polymers for road stabilization is a relatively new technology and has only been under development for the past fifteen years or so.

SOILTECH STABILIZATION POLYMERS
SoilTech polymers binds the base and sub-base layer of roads, preventing dusting and erosion. In many instances, in-situ materials can be used and stabilized with SoilTech polymers. The result is huge savings in aggregate imports and construction time and invariably in the cost of the road. SoilTech stabilized roads, by nature, do not crack under heavy loads, as the roads gain structural strength from compaction.
DISADVANTAGES OF CONVENTIONAL ROAD CONSTRUCTION
Conventional Road Costs Environmental Damage
* Importing New Gravel * Aggregate Use
* Machinery Costs * Water Wastage
SAVING OUR AGGREGATE – SOILTECH STABILIZATION
* Labour Costs * CO2 Emissions during construction
* Water Costs (32 x more than SoilTech roads)
* Construction time
