PolyPavement Natural Soil Pavement — 12 Comments

  1. Hi, I’m Samuel and I’ve been fascinated by this multipurpose product. I am a Nigerian Civil engineer and would love to have a 5-galon bucket of polypavement as most of our streets need this soil solidifying miracle. Please, I would love to be guided on how to purchase this product.

    • There are numerous companies that can be found online. Search for keywords such as soil stabilizing, soil stabilizing products, etc. Our blog posts list several of these companies.

  2. I’m reading, on other blogs, of problems with this product if used in areas with freeze-thaw cycles. Do you have any knowledge of this? (I trust your opinion more than the others). Thus I wonder if it is simply a product best suited to hot desert climates? Also, what becomes of all this “non-toxic” acrylic particles, being worn to dust & then blowing in the wind over our gardens?

    • I’ve never used these products and don’t know the details. Some companies claim to have EPA type safety approval as non toxic materials. I understand it’s made from fruit juice, so it can’t be too bad.

  4. Seems like you could use it for a roof as well — shovel a couple inches of sand or soil onto a roof, then seal it rock hard. With no traffic up there at all, should last a good long time.

  5. PolyPavement sounds fascinating. I have a 2 mile road where I was going to have new gravel laid and graded, but this sounds like a better deal since it wouldn’t have to be redone for 5-10 years.

  6. Wow. Again, very cool. I just talked to Scott last month about this article http://www.designboom.com/weblog/cat/8/view/11777/sandstoneroad-by-thomas-kosbau-andrew-wetzler-iida-awards-2010-winner.html where (much like the post you had http://earthbagbuilding.wordpress.com/2010/09/03/turning-sand-to-stone/ ) they would be able to lower a whole city’s temp 2-3 degrees Celsius using sand and bacteria for sandstone roads.
    This would be great for paving the road up to your home, would you use it for the base floor as well?
