SUBGRADE LEVEL FOR PAVED ROAD

FINAL LAYER FOR UNPAVED ROAD/PLATFORM,


DUST CONTROL
AND SLOPE EROSION CONTROL

the standard by which all others are measured

Envirotac is an Vinyl Acrylic Copolymer that is an


excellent soil binding agent for soil stabilization,
dust and slope erosion control.

Envirotac when applied to the surface or mixed in


with any soil, it will penetrate and extend down
into the soil to create a tough layer of protection.

Range of product : Envirotac II and the recently


introduced Envirotac SC (Super Concentrated)
which has a 50% more coverage area.

Envirotac SC can be diluted with


The usage of Envirotac for stabilization is the most water containing up to 4% salts or
cost effective that lowering cost of project.

8) Asphalt Recycling
Most recent developments and executed projects also shown that on-the-spot
recycling of asphalt (full depth asphalt recycling) using the TEREX RS600C and
TEREX RS950b while mixing Envirotac SC and Carbon (for coloring) directly
with the on-site milled materials results in a new road surface after compaction
with equal appearance as new asphalt however better in strength and
performance.
