CONSOLID 444 >

OTHER TECHNICAL PRODUCTS >

CONSOLID 444 is a chemical substance, which breaks up the adhering water film and leads to an irreversible agglomeration of fines, reducing the capillary rise of water substantially.

The high effectiveness of CONSOLID 444 protects the soil, especially against the soaking in of water.

It allows better compaction of the treated soil and increases the desired density during the time and under traffic.

In comparison with untreated soil, CONSOLID 444 has the following characteristics:

  • Better compactibility through changing the water characteristic in the soil

  • Strong reduction of water absorption through reducing the capillary activity

  • Reduced water permeability

  • The Proctor Optimum of treated soil is lower and the density is higher

  • Strong reduction of water sensibility

  • Strong reduced swelling and shrinking behaviour

The high effectiveness of CONSOLID 444 protects the soil, especially against the soaking in of water. It allows better compaction of the treated soil and increases desired density during the time and under traffic.

O.4 litres of Consolid 444 is applied to 1 m3 soil by weight. Consolid 444 is supplied in 50/200 liter drums or in bulk.
