Enzymes, by definition, are organic catalysts that speed up a chemical reaction without becoming part of the end product. They began being used in commercial applications within the agriculture industry and were found to have stabilisation qualities in certain soil types and classifications.
Our enzymes have been developed and proven by some of the toughest standards in the soil stabilisation business. They have been tested, endorsed and approved by CalTran, US Army Corps of Engineers and The Dirt and Gravel Road Institute at Penn State University.
Enzymes cause the water typically held on the exterior of a clay particle to be shed and in-turn blanket the clay particle. This enables the the particle to become neutral in charge, which then pulls the particle closer together. The process not only reduces the water that can be absorbed in the clay structure, but strengthens the soil and bonds the structures together.
Enzymes are environmentally friendly, organic products that when applied, can provide great soil stabilisation qualities for road construction, roadbeds, airstrips, storage yards, access roads and in military applications.
I have been back to a site where this product was introduced more than six months ago. I personally reviewed the installation process. The road now has no visible signs of wear or erosion in spite of a relatively lengthy period of use and abuse by the local electric cooperative who has a substation at the end of the road.
I believe that the cost of maintenance for dirt roads can be dramatically reduced through implementation of this material. Further, I believe that it will have other uses for slope stabilization, back fill of trenches and improvement of roadway sub-base
