Terrasolid® can also be used in desert regions. There you will find mainly fine-grained round, narrow-grained sands (steep grain line due to the predominance of a grain size range), but stable soils. These can only be consolidated with high cement content. However, high cement contents often make the consolidated layers very solid, brittle and thus inflexible. The setting of the soil can be delayed. In addition, high cement content not only complicates processing, but ultimately also any subsequent disposal of the soil. With Terrasolid®, savings of up to 60% in cement are possible, so that traffic areas can be built much faster, more energy and resource-efficient and thus much more cost-effectively overall.
The use of Terrasolid® in the construction of roads and traffic areas is also worthwhile in the tropics. In tropical regions, laterite, a weathering product with a high iron oxide content, is often found. This material has a high proportion of fines, which swell and lose bonds when water is absorbed. The natural iron and aluminium oxides can cause additional pozzolanic reactions during soil consolidation. This makes laterites particularly suitable for soil consolidation. Large parts of the road structure can be reduced by soil consolidation. This allows cement savings of up to 60% so that traffic areas can be produced much faster, more energy and resource-efficient and thus much more cost-effectively. In addition, high cement content not only complicates processing, but also any subsequent disposal of the soil.
