Lime for soil stabilisation
Lime rapidly improves soil conditions during construction and can add long term benefits to soil properties. Lime helps reduce moisture content in soils; as well as reducing soil plasticity, aiding compaction and increasing strength. Lime also helps reduce soils swelling potential.
Lime can also be used to stabilise soil containing clay. Lime creates a long term pozzolanic strength gaining reaction between lime and the silica/alumina minerals solubilised at high pH from the clay, meaning calcium silictes and calcium aluminates are formed.
