CLAY STABILIZATION SYSTEM

THE CENTRAL CHEMICAL CO., 1407 E. OLIVE AVE., FRESNO, CALIF., HAS ANNOUNCED A NEW LINE OF CHEMICALS SPECIFICALLY FOR STABILIZATION OF CLAYS. THE PRODUCTS COMPRISING THE SYSTEM ARE CLAPAK, CLASET, CLACHEK, AND CLADRI. THE CLAPAK- CLACHEK COMBINATION IS FOR STABILIZATION OF CLAYS IN LOW TRAFFIC AREAS, SUCH AS SHOULDERS, ALLEYS, AND PARKING LOTS. THIS COMBINATION HAS THE UNIQUE ABILITY OF BEING ABLE TO DISPERSE ASPHALT READILY INTO CLAYS, MAKING THIS COMBINATION VALUABLE WHERE EROSION CONTROL IS NECESSARY. IT IS NOT DETRIMENTAL TO GRASS, SHRUBBERY, OR OTHER FOLIAGE. THE CLAPAK-CLASET COMBINATION IS USED IN BASE AND SUBBASE AND WHERE HIGH TRAFFIC COUNTS AND HEAVY LOADS OCCUR. IT COMBINES THE IMPROVEMENT OF BEARING VALUES IN WET CLAYS WITH AN IMPROVEMENT IN MOISTURE EQUILIBRIUM. THIS COMBINATION WILL ELIMINATE SOFT SPOTS AND FROST DAMAGE. CLADRI WILL SPEED THE DEHYDRATION OF CLAYS WHEN WET FROM PRECIPITATION, INUNDATION, OR BECAUSE OF INHERENTLY WET CONDITIONS. /ARTICLE/
