A sealed road stabilised with PolyCom has survived widespread flooding in Western Australia.PolyCom Stabilising Aid was used to stabilise this section of road in Western Australia around 18 months ago. PolyCom was blade mixed into the naturally occurring materials, before the road was compacted and then sealed.
The road services a cattle feed lot, and is a haul route for heavy trucks and b-doubles. Running through a natural basin, the road is susceptible to flood damage. As seen in the photographs, the sealed road has scoured back to where the PolyCom layer was put in.
“There's no punching of aggregate, no deformation, and no lifting of the seal,” says Paul Bright from Betta Roads, who worked with the council to apply PolyCom Stabilising Aid during re-construction of the road. “Overall the treated section remains untouched.” PolyCom produces a stronger pavement that is more resistant to water ingress and heavy traffic wear.
