Building stronger roads with PolyCom Stabilising Aid
When it comes to roading, PolyCom Stabilising Aid is a cost-effective way to build stronger roads. There are no cure-time constraints, and the pavement is re-workable at anytime.
Stabilising pavements with PolyCom delivers results similar to traditional stabilising methods with regard to strength, but provides better water resistance and flexibility. With stronger resistance against water ingress and traffic wear, PolyCom treated roads last longer than untreated roads.

PolyCom Stabilising Aid reduces the cost of future maintenance including:
- Carting gravel and virgin quarry materials to site
- Fuel and machinery maintenance
- Damage to surrounding roads when trucking new quarry materials
- Time and labour
All ground improvement work with PolyCom Stabilising Aid can be achieved using standard construction plant or road stabilising machines.
PolyCom is used by civil road construction organisations, councils and shires, and mining and gas companies for pavement stabilisation in the following applications:
PolyCom Stabilising Aid introduces water resistance, improved workability and increased strength, delivering a stronger more resilient and environmentally sustainable platform for your project.
Sub-grade improvement and capping
Strengthened sub-grades deliver huge cost advantages by allowing more economic pavement designs and drainage options.
Sub-grade capping substantially reduces, and can even eliminate, re-work from weather or traffic damage in cut to fill operations, again reducing project costs over traditional road stabilising methods.
Wear course up-grade
Wear courses on council roads, rural tracks and access roads all benefit from improvement with PolyCom.
A PolyCom treated pavement will deliver extended service interval requirements with increased strength, a highly resilient surface and increased water resistance way more economically than traditional road stabilising methods.
PolyCom Stabilising Aid can be incorporated into the pavement during a standard service where re-mixing and re-shaping is performed.
Dust and sediment control
Tighter and more durable water resistant road surfaces produce much less fugitive dust and sediment run-off into water ways.
These improved surfaces are critical for the environment and are fast becoming the minimum requirement for all road builders involved in construction, energy, mining and local government.
Road surfaces like these, created with PolyCom Stabilising Aid, have a significantly reduced ecological impact, are not difficult to produce and are easily maintained with correct procedures.
Mining road improvements
PolyCom Stabilising Aid can guarantee reductions in haul fleet costs. Improvements to running course strength and wearability as well as reductions in rolling resistance are easily achieved and just as easily maintained with small changes to operational procedures.
These improved water resistant roads will deliver substantial net haul fleet savings to the operator.
