HISTORY OF THE CONSOLID SYSTEM >
During the 1960’s the founder of Consolid AG, Dr. Gunther A Scherr, formulated, manufactured and used a special type of high-flexible asphalt emulsion in the construction of surface coatings, particularly on such roads that could not be constructed in the standard method. The asphalt coating was placed on existing soil roads without changing the sub-base and base course layers. This process led to the application of this coating on too muddy roads with all the moving characteristics of such roads.
The cohesive soils, becoming plastic with increasing moisture content revealed the requirement and idea of soil stabilisation. On further investigation, it became evident that the existing systems offered worldwide at the time could not solve the problems associated with cohesive in-situ soils. There was no product on the market, which achieved a satisfactory result. It was at that point in the late 1960s that Dr Scherr decided to develop his own range of products. After extensive laboratory research & development, site experiments showed remarkable field results.
The first field application was put down in 1968 in Italy. In 1973 Consolid AG was founded in Switzerland for ongoing research & development work and worldwide marketing.
Since 1985 the production and marketing of the products has been transferred step by step to regional companies, after the CONSOLID SYSTEM was approved and specified by engineers and used by Authorities, Contractors and Housing Developers across Europe, USA, South America, Southern Africa, India, Australia and many other countries.
