Tar roads provide a smooth and durable surface for vehicle traffic, making them a popular choice for both urban and rural areas. The construction of tar roads requires careful preparation of the underlying material to ensure a stable and long-lasting road surface. EL-Quarto SSS is a soil stabilizing solution that can significantly enhance the performance of in-situ materials, improving the overall quality of tar road construction.
EL-Quarto SSS is a specially formulated solution that is designed to improve the strength and stability of soil and gravel materials. The solution is applied to the underlying material in a dilute form, where it reacts with the clay particles to create a permanent bond. This bond significantly increases the strength and stability of the material, reducing the risk of gravel loss and minimizing the need for road maintenance.
The application of EL-Quarto SSS to the underlying material prior to tar road construction has numerous benefits. Firstly, it increases the bearing capacity of the material, reducing the likelihood of rutting and other forms of degradation. Secondly, it improves the soil workability, making it easier to compact and shape the material during the construction process. Finally, EL-Quarto SSS reduces the cost of road construction by between 20 – 60%, providing a more cost-effective solution for communities and road networks.
In terms of site preparation, EL-Quarto SSS requires minimal preparation. The surface levels should be established, proper drainage should be allowed, and any large lumps in the soil material should be broken. Once the site is prepared, EL-Quarto SSS is added to water at a ratio of 1:250, and the diluted solution is applied evenly to the soil surface. The solution is then mixed with the soil and compacted to the final cut levels and shape. After compaction, the treated section should be sprayed with clean water daily for 5 days, after which the surface can be finished with a pneumatic compactor or roller.
In conclusion, EL-Quarto SSS is a highly effective solution for improving the performance of in-situ materials during tar road construction. It reduces costs, increases bearing capacity, and improves soil workability, providing a more cost-effective and durable road surface for communities. The treatment provided by EL-Quarto SSS is permanent, and there is no need for repeated treatment over time.
