STABILIZATION OF PEAT WITH CARBAMIDE AS A BINDER

Tests carried out in Poland with carbamide resulted in an increase of almost 100 percent in the water and frost resistance and compressive strength of peat; this fact increases the possible uses of peat in roads and in drainage structures. The carbamide was added to the peat in the form of 40 percent aqueous solutions. Best results were obtained with admixtures of carbamide amounting to 20 percent of the total filler to mixtures of peat and sand. /TRRL/
