Loose Gravel is Dangerous!

Dirt and gravel roads often develop corrugations, a wash-board effect, that makes driving conditions hazardous and can cause serious damage to vehicles and products.


Environmentally damaging, dangerous dust

Dirt and gravel roads cause high levels of dust that is a constant hazard.  Dust is dangerous to motorists, pedestrians, the general health of local  inhabitants and dust significantly reduces crop output.


The Aggrebind© (AGB)solution

  • 1.  Construct traditional asphalt/concrete surfaces
  • 2.  AGB stabilized soil  base with asphalt   wear surface
  • 3. Construct AGB stabilized soil with stone chippings embedded
  • 4. Construct AGB stabilized soil
  • 5. Construct AGB stabilized road base and surface seal with AGB polymer.
  •    AGB does not use cement or concrete.

Too expensive and not environmentally friendly

Less expensive than (1), same durability and result

Less expensive and faster than (1) and (2), with greater surface wearability.

Higher wear than (3) with permanent road base, typically 50% cheaper

Less expensive, faster and easier to install providing a durable water resistant surface that only requires resealing when visual wear appears.

The Aggrebind© alternative

Note: This is a general guideline only and each project should be engineered /evaluated.



Visual Guide to Road Compressive Strength


150MM stabilized COMPACTED LAYER

Supports vehicles up to 40 tons


Ideal for pathways and sidewalks


Specialty application  – vehicles up to 100 tons

The maximum load is spread over a greater area when the layer depth is increased

Existing road softens and erodes when wet and is prone to potholing resulting in dangerous driving conditions. This type of road is never safe and requires constant maintenance. 

Existing Rutted Soil Road

Lleida, Spain


Existing surface is ripped to the required depth (100mm, 150mm, 250mm depending on ton load required) with care being taken not to dig too deep as this could result in an uneven layer strength after stabilising.

An alternative option is to use a meri-crusher that breaks up soil and rocks up to a depth of 300mm in a single pass.

4000 litre constant pressure bowser dispersing water/polymer solution. Speed of vehicle regulated to disperse mixture evenly across the width of the road. It is important to calculate the area that each bowser load will treat as this will enable the mixing process to be implemented immediately. It also ensures that the surface will not dry out too fast between the mixing and compaction phases.

Mixing in Polymer Solution to Soil

Offset Disc Harrow or alternatively Power Harrow, should be used immediately to mix the polymer/water thoroughly into the treated soilA road grader can also be used for this process.

Grading/Profiling Road

A road grader is used prior to, and during, the compaction process to create the correct road profile.

This is vital to prevent rainwater from constantly lying on the finished road surface as this is the main cause of potholes.

Vibro Compaction of Road

Vibration Compaction single drum smooth roller with rubber tractor tires which has to be driven backwards to remove tire indentations on the finished road surface.

A smooth drum dual tandem vibro roller is preferred.

Final Surface Sealing with Aggrebind©:H2O

Surface sealed with a single pass of the bowser. It is important that vehicles do not drive on the surface during the sealing process. The surface is rolled again, with NO vibration, when the surface is sufficiently dry that it does not stick to the roller drum

“I am not aware of another water based polymer that has the ability to seal cementitious and natural stone surfaces AND provide flexibility to mortars, grouts and underlayments, while ALSO having the ability to bond granular materials into hardened, modular building units.”

Post Application Consideration




  •   Whilst surface/upper crust will dry, below
  •     surface may not have cured, but drivable in 1-2 hours
  •   Optimum results achieved where non trafficked for
  •     12 hours (over night)
  •   Tire track paths
  •   Heavy braking areas
  •   Corners/turning areas
  •   Natural surface wear
  •    Recommended Inspection and resealing to areas of
  •     heavy wear. The polymers have a bond-back capability
  •     that ensures the integrity of the road is maintained.

Aggrebind© Blue Block/Paver Sample

  • This sample is 100% desert sand, light in color.
  • The Aggrebind ©  Color completely permeates the paver.
  • An Aggrebind ©  blue top seal was applied, to seal and
  •   give higher color density.
  •  Note: Factory supplied Aggrebind ©  Color has color density to top seal and tone naturally light soils.  For darker soils, red soils and highly absorbent soils more colorant is typically required.  Site testing for color density is highly recommended.


Aggrebind© Blocks, Bricks and Pavers

  • With Aggrebind© and the most basic of material specifications:
    •   All sub-soils with a +/- 35% fines content,  material passing through a 0.063 sieve.
    •   No stone larger than the 20% on the minimum layer depth being treated.
    •   No organic material.  Any contaminated to be fully analyzed prior to use.
    •   Manufacture bricks, blocks, pavers and roads from on-site soils and waste materials

Block & brick housing can be simple, basic and in color – done manually or mechanically.

“Earth as a building material is available everywhere and exists in many different compositions. It is most efficiently used in developing and developed countries to house the greatest number of people with the least demand.  Masonry is one of the most popular materials in many countries for construction of houses due to its useful properties such as durability, relatively low cost, wider availability, good sound and heat insulation, acceptable fire resistance, adequate resistance to weathering and attractive appearance” (Jayasinghe and Mallawarachchi, 2009).
