5 Things You Need to Know about Clay Stabilization

Clay stabilization has become the most recommended and popular method to prepare soil for several projects especially construction projects. It has many benefits, and it also has several important points we need to know and learn. Those important points include:

#1. It Needs Soil Layer

To work it out, this method needs subgrade soil in a layer. This layer should be mixed with clay. Later, it will be placed at specific locations as the engineer designs it. The placement can be a little bit complicated.

#2. Material Purity

This clay stabilization method only works if the clay material is free from several things including trees, stumps, frozen soil, other organic matters, and several unsuitable materials. We may need to test it first to make sure there is no objectionable quantity there.

#3. Clay Material Measurement

Before any application, the soil will be tested. We will also need to find out if the clay material volume is enough. This is to help us estimating the volume of material distributed over the subgrade. It needs to be as keen as possible.

#4. The Soil Still Needs Moisture

This method is basically to make the soil ready. Commonly, it is to make it drier as well. However, certain grade of soil moisture, depending on the project, is still needed. Water addition maybe still needed during the process.

#5. Mixing Tool

We may think mixing the clay is easy enough. It is easy enough but it requires specific tool called rotary blade mixer. This is the only tool allowed, and this time, farm cultivator does not count or used.

There are still many things we should learn about this method. If we are about to have a construction or agricultural project, and we plan to apply this method, learning more about it is essential. Find good source, and learn in detail. Be prepared so the project can go well.
