  Industry Terminology
Soil ‘ENHANCEMENT’ – Soft Stabilisation
Controlled application and mixing of a low dose modified cementitious binder into soils close to their optimum moisture content (+/- 2%)
Enhances soil compressive strength enough to form a bearing layer for surface stone or concrete (armoured) layers to be founded upon.
Provides semi-permanent changes in material properties but needs to have lifetime drainage system to stop saturation & softening of treated material
Requires sub-soil CBR > 2.5% and organic contents typically < 2% This is not the RoadCem way!
