Innovations for German Road Construction

Soil enhancement with ETONIS ® is already being used to successfully stabilize rural roads and parking lots. A pilot project being performed in collaboration with the Federal Highway Research Institute on the A 61 freeway in Germany is seeking to establish whether ETONIS ® dispersions can also extend the service life of the subbase.

Soil enhancement with ETONIS ® is already being used to successfully stabilize rural roads and parking lots. A pilot project being performed in collaboration with the Federal Highway Research Institute on the A 61 freeway in Germany is seeking to establish whether ETONIS® dispersions can also extend the service life of the subbase.

Should modification with ETONIS ® polymer meet the high expectations here, this could prove to be a major milestone in road construction. For it would then be possible to produce a flexible, durable road substructure with locally available soil material. The benefits: less outlay on repairs, lower material and transport costs and less time stuck in traffic jams.

The video shows how WACKER worked with experienced partners to demonstrate the material properties of concrete admixtures based on ETONIS ® 1400 S on the A 61 freeway at Boppard in Germany.
