Evocrete

Evocrete
Soil Solidification and Concrete modification
The application of EvoCrete® allows the construction of frost-thaw resistant bearing layers, without subsoil improvement or stabilization, and allows construction of a bearing layer without aggregates and without base layer stabilization.
The use of Evocrete in combination with cement, reduces the dangers of premature cracking significantly. The unique performance of Evocrete product range is now also available for reinforced concrete. It is the only cement and soil solidifier, which is certified by CE mark and fully tested product, matching EU and world standards (IAF).

Evocrete

 

The application of EvoCrete® eliminates the need for all traditional base / bearing layer technologies for road and infrastructure projects, and removes necessity to excavate soil and construct a frost-thaw-resistant road base by the use of aggregates. The modification of the natural soil and the cement hydration process during the solidification procedure produces a base / bearing layer, with a significantly boosted bearing and load capacity. Additionally, frost-thaw-resistance and water impermeability are extremely intensified as a result of EvoCrete® monitored solidification. The following slide compares different examples of foundations and the thickness of the base / bearing layers.

Procedure steps
Step 1: The old asphalt
• Milling of the old asphalt layers
• Up to 10 cm of the old asphalt material can be mixed together with the cement-EvoCrete-mixture
• Cracking of the old layer material
• Big stones were brought to the surface
• Milling of the mixed layer material with the stone crusher to a grain size less than 50 mm

Step 2: Surface Preparations
Preparation of surfaces
• Secure trafficability for construction equipment
• Reduce water content of soil, if required
• Exchange soil, if required
• Pre-leveling/pre-compaction of rough grade level
• Obstruction-free trafficability of the area
• Marking/pegging of stabilization area
• Safeguarding of subterranean service pipes

Step 3: Cement Spreading
Spreading of cement
• Qualification test for specification of cement/additive mixture
• Production of cement
• Preparation and use of suitable spreading vehicle
• Construction site logistics for on schedule delivery of spreading vehicle
• Supervision of spreading procedure

ST_step03

Step 4: Cement Mixing
Mixing of cement
• Mixing of cement/additive mixture for required strength using soil stabilizer in the soil
• In the case of milling depths requiring less than 50 cm, the soil is dug away, stored intermediary, mixed with cement and reused

Step 5: Surface Watering
Watering the surface
• Irrigating the base layer (evaporation protection) using an irrigation unit
• Continual adding of water without interrupting the milling work
• Filling procedure using vacuum tanker

ST_step05

Step 6: Surface Leveling
Levelling of the surface
• On-site creation of precise grade level
• Post-profiling with grader (laser controlled) if necessary

ST_step06

Step 7: Surface Compression
Compression of the surface
• Dynamic and/or static compression on average 100% DPR using suitable equipment
• Compression of precise grade level using smooth drum roller on average 100% DPR using suitable equipment

ST_step07

Step 8: Quality Assurance
Quality assurance
• Geotechnical support using static plate tests according to DIN 18134 and using dynamic plate tests as well as falling weight equipment
• Removal of drilling cores
• Compression strength tests, etc.

Soil solidification with EvoCrete® in Indonesia
The following video was shot in Pulau Merah, Indonesia. It is a 3.6 km CSR road that sees very heavy truck traffic. The contractor was PT Tindodi and the client was Bumi Suksesindo Copper and Gold. The project was under the expert supervision of EvoCrete’s® Indonesian partner PT Geoservices.
The existing road had been severely damaged through the use of over-loaded single axle transports. It had only been one year old, when repairs necessitated a complete rebuild of the top of the sub grade and the base and wear courses. EvoCrete® was chosen due to the tremendous cost savings, the durability of the product, the ease of application, and significantly reduced construction time/traffic management which only served to enhance savings further.
The community and the customer were both extremely satisfied during every step of the process.
