Geotechnical

A strong and stable sub-base or subgrade is essential to achieving a smooth, long-lasting road or driving surface. This is true for any surface, whether it be concrete, chip and seal, or asphalt.

 

In response to this need, Lafarge offers engineered solutions for improving subsurface integrity and durability. Lafarge TerraCem™ is a specialized blend of cementitious and other construction materials that allows for more efficient and cost-effective stabilization of the road base and subgrade. It is often blended for a given project based on a geotechnical engineer's recommendation.

 

Stabilizing with TerraCem is a simple process whereby a controlled amount of engineered product is applied and then thoroughly blended into the soil. The entire material blend is subsequently graded and compacted. This stabilized section is then ready for the desired wearing surface application.
