Calciment® Stabilization Chemistry

Calciment® application rates are determined in the geotechnical laboratory where the properties of moisture reduction, compaction, and strength development are optimized. Typical application rates by weight of the soil range from 2 to 8 percent depending on the moisture content and soil type. Calciment® is spread as a dry powder by a variety of methods. Newer spreader designs can accurately place Calciment® at any application rate while minimizing dusting. Mixing is accomplished with a pulvamixer or rotary stabilizer to a depth of 12 to 18 inches. A disc harrow can be utilized provided several passes are made to assure thorough mixing. When required, water is added during or immediately after mixing with a water truck. The proper water content will allow soil to be molded in your hand without crumbling or being visibly wet. Compaction is accomplished with a sheepsfoot, smooth drum, or rubber tired roller. Curing or hardening is a gradual process that continues over many days. Geotechnical evaluations are commonly performed at 3, 7, and 28 days to confirm unconfined compressive strength gains. From a practical perspective the construction contractor wants to proceed as quickly as possible and it is not uncommon to support heavy equipment the same day.
