Abstract:

It was shown that polymerization in or with both soils and pure clay minerals greatly enhances their strength characteristics, reduces their susceptability to adsorption of water and resulting swelling, and provides a durable surface for a number of potential applications. Also, the monomer catalyst system may be field-implemented into materials which have a moisture content near or at the required for optimum compaction. Author
