PolyCom Stabilising Aid saves you the money you need to achieve the triple bottom line - environmental sustainability, financial sustainability and social sustainability.
Environmental sustainability - By stabilising the in-situ road materials instead of traditional re-sheeting, councils and road makers can achieve a significant range of environmental benefits.
A recent life-cycle based assessment comparing a project using PolyCom and a project using conventional methods of re-sheeting revealed close to 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and an 80% reduction in water usage.
PolyCom is a non-acidic, environment compliant soil stabiliser listed with ECO-Buy and the NSW Sustainable Choice program.
Financial sustainability - Roads treated with PolyCom are stronger, more water resistant, and last longer than untreated roads. In fact, councils using PolyCom report a reduction in maintenance requirements of up to a factor of six. The need for costly quarry materials is reduced, and even eliminated in some cases.
A comparative cost study between the cost of maintaining and re-sheeting unsealed roads using traditional methods compared to PolyCom demonstrates road maintenance savings of over 70% per year. This means asset management savings can be redirected into other critical infrastructure projects.
Social sustainability - The tightly bound nature of PolyCom treated unsealed roads makes them significantly more resistant to water damage and traffic wear. Reduced maintenance requirements means less road work disruptions. A stronger running surface means less potholes - and less ratepayer complaints.
PolyCom Stabilising Aid is OHS compliant, safe to work with and easy to apply.
