Expansive Clay Soils
Highly expansive clay materials shrink and swell due to change in moisture content. Moisture fluctuations can be caused by seasonal rainfall or human activities such as irrigation or improper drainage. This shrinking and swelling can translate into several inches of movement on the surface.
Roads, parking lots, homes, indutrial and commercial buildings, and swimming pools built on expansive clay materials often sustain expansive damage as a result of soil movement.
Chemical Stabilization Treatment utilizing EcSS 3000 reduces the swell potential of expansive clay materials, to help prevent damage to overlaying structures. It has proven effective under airport taxiways, roads, parking lots, swimming pools, residential, industrial and commercial buildings.
