What is Stabilizer®?
- It is 100% natural
- Environmentally friendly
- Low carbon footprint*
- 100% RECYCLABLE!
- Any natural aggregate colour
Stabilizer® is a porous (permeable) hard surfacing alternative to Macadam.
Stabilizer® binds and locks crushed stone screenings to provide a durable, natural aggregate surface in every naturally available colour. The surface substantially resists the erosive effects of weather and light traffic, making it the ideal path construction method.
Once blended with the aggregate, the Stabilizer® absorbs water and binds the particles together. The result is a natural-looking path for pedestrians, trolleys and buggies that blends into its native surroundings and is also strong enough to withstand daily traffic. Once dry, this surface will re-absorb a limited amount of water and remain porous (permeable), yet will retain its firmness, even in very wet conditions.
Strength of graded aggregates can be increased by 300% with the addition of Stabilizer®.
Stabilizer® is our most cost-effective paving solution that can be pre-mixed or mixed on site.
* 1m², 50mm thickness of stabilizer releases 0.64kg of CO₂ whilst dense bitumen Macadam releases 16.69kg of CO₂. UK government figures state that 2.68kg of CO₂ is released when 1l of diesel is consumed so 1m2 of footpath saves the equivalent of 6l of diesel.
