Lime Modification and Lime Stabilisation for Soils

Just found a new publication here  from the National Lime Association titled Lime Treated Soils – Save Time and Money.  The publication provides information to the construction professional who need an effective and economical means for dealing with unstable soils.

The publication looks at how Lime can be used to dry, temporarily modify, or permanently stabilize soils and the many benefits of this process, including:

Drying With Lime

  • Minimizes weather-related construction delays
  • Extends construction season
  • Acts quickly—allowing return to work in hours
Lime Modification
  • Speeds construction with stable working platform that resists subsequent rain
  • Maximizes use of low cost, on-site materials
  • Reduces plasticity
  • Improves compactability
  • Permits reworking
Lime Stabilisation
  • Chemically transforms clay soils
  • Permanently increases strength
  • Eliminates soil expansion
  • Creates excellent freeze-thaw resistance
  • Resists cracking
  • Reduces thickness of overlying pavement layers, saving money
  • Permits reworking
  • Maximizes use of low cost, on-site materials

The publication then goes on to look at the different levels of Lime Modification and Soil Stabilisation in more depth, providing information construction techniques and testing regimes.  Have a look and let us know what you think.
