Executive Summary

Lithified Technologies

LithTec™-soil retains full strength after more than 6 hours time to compaction vs. Cement-soil which loses over 10% after 2 hours, over 50% after 4 hours, and over 75% after 6 hours time to compaction, compared to cement-soil’s strength at 1.5 hours time to compaction.

A. Road Bases Superior to Traditional Designs

  • High structural credits allowed in designs to reduce materials and lower cost
  • Extend time to work soil with superior results
  • Applicable for use under any surface - asphalt, concrete, chip seal

B. Unprecedented Combination of Benefits

  • Low and slow permeability High strengths
  • High ductility (stress/strain)
  • High strengths
  • Passes EPA Method 1312 (no harmful chemicals leach into the environment)
  • Low shrink/swell characteristics

C. Value Engineered Projects

  • Recycle materials already paid for
  • Eliminates waste – reduces costs for removal or replacement of failing materials
  • Faster production times reduce overall project length and cost
  • Performance based specifications that include design criteria for permeability and ductility
  • Better product with lower lifecycle costs
