Subgrade is the lower most layer of road structure. Subgrade should be stabilized to bear the load of other road layers and also to take loads of repeated traffic load. For this stabilization we usually use two types of additive agents that are lime and cement stabilization. cement. GSJ Volume 7, Issue 4, April 2019 ISSN 2320-9186

Indeed, the sulphate ions react with calcium, hydroxyl, and aluminium compounds from cement andor L to form these expansive phases. Furthermore, the magnitude of damage
Mar 10, 2020 Calcium-based stabilizer materials CSMs exhibit pozzolanic properties which improve the properties of clayey soils by hydration, cation exchange, flocculation, pozzolanic reaction, and carbonation. In this comprehensive review, comprising over past three decades from 1990 to 2019, a mechanistic literature of expansive soil stabilization by incorporating CSMs is presented by reviewing
This makes bentonite beds unsuitable for building and road construction. However, the swelling property is used to advantage in drilling mud and groundwater sealants. The montmorillonite making up bentonite is an aluminum phyllosilicate mineral, which takes the form of microscopic platy grains.

It had been postulated that introduction of material of ... Members of the montmorillonite-beidellite series are by far the common smectites in bentonites Grim amp Guven, 1978.
Calcium montmorillonite is a weathering product volcanic ash deposited of in a freshwater environment. It is the main component of natural calcium bentonite. It does swell on contact with water but not to the same extent as sodium montmorillonite. Its advantages are its reduced cation exchange capacity thereby maintaining its low permeability.
Calcium chloride is an economical, dependable additive for obtaining optimum moisture during construction. Full depth reclamation When recycling roads through full depth reclamation, calcium chloride can provide a stabilized base that can withstand traffic even before the wearing surface is

Montmorillonite is a dioctahedral layer silicate and in sodium form swells when mixed with water to form dispersed colloid-size particles. There are two common types of Bentonite for commercial use sodium or swelling Bentonite and calcium Bentonite. Toxicology. Bentonite is non-toxic and inert.
GampW Bentonite Calcium 300 Product Description. Bentonite Calcium, is a natural montmorillonite clay formed from weathering of volcanic ash, most often in the presence of water. Careful mining at our unique Koppies mine deposit ensures mineralogical purity and consistently high cation exchange capacity. Features. Natural clay Benefits
The non-clay minerals associated with montmorillonite include quartz, feldspar, zeolite, gypsum, calcite, pyrite and so on. The chemical formula of montmorillonite is Al2O3.4SiO2.3H2OThe main chemical composition is silicon dioxide 3 oxide 2 aluminum and water, but also contains iron magnesium calcium sodium potassium and other elements
The Bentonite clay we offer at Australian Healing Clay is a unique sodium magnesium Bentonite that is volcanic clay having a cation exchange of 90meq. It occurs with high natural purity that satisfies food standards as safe to ingest. It is BP grade suitable for use

In order to illustrate such improvements, three of the most frequently occurring minerals in clay deposits, namely, kaolinite, montmorillonite and quartz were subjected to a series of tests. As lime stabilization is most often used in relation to road construction, the tests were chosen with this in mind.
In micrometers scale, the sodic-montmorillonite forms a net in bitumen. Because of good compatibility between montmorillonite and bitumen, it is effectively acting on rheological behavior and aging properties of bitumen. Therefore, in order to improve the roads life time, oregano-montmorillonite is suggested as an alternative for montmorillonite.
Specialty Clays. Artesia mines various specialty clays such as sepiolite, saponite and calcium bentonite. From these clays a number of products are made for a wide variety of uses in agricultural, construction and industrial applications.
