Lime Stabilisation and Cement Stabilisation
Lime stabilisation and modification is the addition of binder product (usually quicklime) to the host material which reduces moisture dramatically turning the unusable material into a valid construction material with a 5% CBR.
More information on this process can be found on our Soil Stabilisation page.
Below are some videos of the Lime Stabilisation and Soil Stabilisation Process
