Are lime shortages or pricing increases an issue for you or your clients?

Aug 11, 2022 | Soil Stabilisation

It’s seems like every few days we are having conversations relating to the shortage of lime supply or significant price increases. Is this an issue for you?

We’d like to share an alternative that maybe worth reviewing, if the application is suitable.

TERRA-3000® is a transformational long lasting sustainable soil stabilisation solution for performance improvement (mechanical and hydraulic) of cohesive (clayey) soils.

TERRA-3000® transforms in-situ clay soils into a high-performing asset by permanently and irreversibly breaking down the capillary action of water within cohesive fines during treatment.

As a consequence, treated soil particles are more closely associated during compaction.

The result is the treated layers are no longer prone to the problems associated with the ingress of water and pavement strength is markedly improved.

Whilst substantially improving the performance of in-situ cohesive soils used in civil construction, TERRA-3000® is carbon neutral, water-soluble, non-leaching, safe to handle, and is suitable for use in environmentally sensitive environments. These qualities are very important to us.

For example on safe handling, just today, I was chatting with a client about lime + sweat burn on the neck. In this instance, they were not involved in the lime application process, just working near by.

TERRA-3000® facilitates the creation of a base-grade from in-situ materials at a lesser depth, delivering better performance at a lower cost, than traditional pavement design.

Let us know if you’d like to explore this further.

I felt the training was very thorough. If anyone doesn’t know how to use a PANDA after that session, they shouldn’t be using one at all.

If your after sales service is anything like what I have already received, I think I definitely made the correct choice.

We find clients are often looking for ways to improve geotechnical testing outcomes and do it more efficiently at the same time. This drives their buying decision making. Australian Soil and Concrete Testing (ASCT) was a case in point when they were searching for Plate Load Test equipment for their upcoming Collector Wind Farm project. Some of the things that motivated them include: […]

We are excited to introduce the addition of a new Liquefaction Risk Estimation module in WebSprint©. Paired with our cutting-edge products, PANDA® and GRIZZLY®, this module enables you to assess the liquefaction risk of soils exposed to seismic stress. PANDA® Instrumented DCP: This cutting-edge tool provides dynamic penetrometer soundings, delivering precise data crucial for seismic risk evaluations. GRIZZLY® […]

The Australian Geomechanics Society is gearing up for a series of geotechnical events across VIC, WA, NSW, and SA-NT. We are thrilled to inform you that we will be sponsoring and attending these exciting geotechnical events, and we would love for you to join us. It’s a fantastic opportunity to catch up, explore our booth (VIC), and stay informed about […]
