Exposure to heavy vehicles, rain, and high-water tables can cause damage that necessitates soil stabilization to restore the original load-bearing capacity and extend a road’s service life. With copolymers, these objectives become easy and affordable. Copolymers capsulate soil particles, bind them together into larger soil particles, and create a solid, dense, and hydrophobic layer.
