Unsealed road budgets are being blown away *Sponsored content
25 July 2018 01:02
unsealed roads fail through surface wear, most significantly when the 'sheeting layer' disappears slowly in a cloud of dust. Because of this, material loss unsealed roads are a large consumer of natural materials
(Centre for Pavement Engineering Education)
Australian-made solution improves outcomes
Real-time results taken from 14 different
unsealed roads in NSW and VIC during 2017 showed actual averaged reductions in material loss of 84% in comparison to adjacent re-sheeted roads.
Ravel test methodology is available here.
Results of PolyCom treated vs untreated
Data averages show PolyCom treated roads lost 84% less road material than untreated roads
A single 2kg bottle treats 50m
of road materials.
Treating unsealed roads in-situ with PolyCom and blending existing materials makes for a safer more sustainable unsealed road network that requires 4-6 times less maintenance grading. Call 1800 790 907 or visit
Benefits of PolyCom
Reduced purchase of re-sheet materials
Less trucking by using in-situ materialConsiderable reduction in fuel use
Less repeat work
Reduced sediment run off from roadsReduces mud and dust
Use existing crew and machinery
Treated roads are less slippery when wet
