DirtGlue® Industrial Polymer

Overview

DirtGlue®Industrial Polymer: eco-safe and very water resistant soil stabilizer for road building.
 
DirtGlue®Industrial polymer emulsion is a powerful, high-tech bonding agent specifically engineered to bond soil particles together for road building. A non-hazardous, water-soluble product, DirtGlue®Industrial polymer contains no harmful chemicals, will not adversely affect people, animals or aquatic life, and even though it has incredible strength, it is environmentally clean. So it can be applied with confidence to even the most environmentally sensitive areas, such as wetland buffer zones.

DirtGlue®Industrial polymer is mechanically mixed into the road surface aggregate binding with the soil to form a tough durable three dimensional matrix that functions like asphalt. This matrix is sufficiently robust and durable that it makes great vehicle driving surfaces, including roads, parking lots, golf cart paths, and driveways.

Most other polymer dust control products on the market use vinyl acetate copolymers. DirtGlue®polymer uses a proprietary polymer additive / mix (with no vinyl acetate copolymers) that offers greater UV stability and much better hydrophobicity. This insures each DirtGlue®polymer application keeps working long after other products fail.

Prior to commencing application the area should have all drainage issues addressed such that no water will flow across or under the application except through appropriate drainage systems.   The base must be stable and well compacted prior to placing aggregate for treatment with DirtGlue®polymer.  If the base contains clay then it should be suitably treated (TerraDry, lime, fly ash, Portland cement, removed and replaced with rock, etc.).

Once the above has been accomplished:

  1. Lay the proper aggregate down two and half inches deep.
  2. Apply DirtGlue®Industrial polymer.
  3. Once the polymer is applied to the aggregate mix it into the aggregate very thoroughly (as if mixing mortar or concrete).
  4. Continue mixing until all of the aggregate has the liquid (polymer and water) distributed throughout evenly (a power rake or full depth reclamator is very effective for this if the area is quite large).
  5. Once the liquid is completely and evenly mixed into the aggregate then compact using compaction equipment appropriate for the size of the project.
  6. Ensure that the finished surface is sloped or crowned (whichever appropriate) so as to drain properly and be sure that the edges are slopes so as to have the drainage continue to move away from the treated surface and not run back under the treated surface.
  7. Do NOT make applications when rain is imminent.

The above road building system will create a road that functions and has similar lifespan to asphalt.

DirtGlue®industrial polymer is the ideal polymer for building hard driving surfaces by mixing it with proper aggregates. For more information about building eco-friendly roads with crushed rock and polymer, visit the DGrbs () page.


DirtGlue® Industrial Polymer - What Others Say

  • We were introduced to your product by a contractor in the area who just can't stop talking about it. He convinced us to do a test road on pure enthusiasm. That was 18 months ago, we have all the permits and approvals, and it is getting the attention of all the right people. We included it in next year's budget and our town is planning to build at least 7 connector roads with your DG RBS method. Let me tell you, this test road is holding up better than everything we've paved around that same period, which looked very pretty in the beginning. It is very confidence inspiring to see such performance.

  • We are a consulting company, and we sell your product to a few clients overseas. I am not a technical person, however,the feedback we're receiving from the civil engineers with regard to your three-product ecological road building method is rather impressive... and I thought you might like to know that.

  • I was skeptically searching the web for a product to harden our 70 yard long driveway, which used to be a dust nightmare, especially when we took out our four horses. We always saw DirtGlue at the top of the search engine results, but were somewhat reluctant because we have tried other polymers in the market and the results were ... seasonal at best. Let me tell you: it's been 4 years since we applied the product according to your instructions. It's still hard like a rock and no dust, no mud, not even a pothole. Talk about living up to your promises. We love you guys! Best regards from Maria and Ken.

  • I am a contractor using the Dirt Glue Road Building System. We pave parking lots and driveways. We never registered as a reseller, but we read the manual and used it a few times. We're getting more word of mouth referrals for this than for any of our other procedures (pavers, sealcoating, asphalt, etc). How do we become a reseller?

  • Hi Chris. The Racing Association project was a complete success. All our race tracks are now fitted with an incredibly hard driving surface but feature the nice natural soil look. What's funny is some folks, especially the drivers, step on it, then reach down and try to scrape it (doesn't work), then they look around, scratch their heads, because they just can't figure it out. Soil? This hard? Anyway, thanks for all your help and support.
