AN INTRODUCTION TO SASBIND
Sasbind is a uniquely formulated soil stabilser, which water based emulsion of modified acrylic polymers suitable for the binding and stabilisation of layers for use in construction of all types of roads. Sasbind provides a strong gluing and waterproofing action on soil particles and is suitable for application to a wide variety of soil types. The addition of Sasbind will also improve the wet weather performance of soils and gravel roads.
Sasbind is best applied as a mix-in treatment during construction but is also suitable for application to the surface of already constructed roads requiring dust palliatation or erosion protection.
The application of Sasbind does not require any specialised equipment for application and a standard water bowser is suitable for product application.
