Less is more. Sustainable road maintenance and construction.

Hi there,

In March this year, a council in south-west New South Wales undertook a practical comparison between unsealed road maintenance methods. 

Selecting a stretch of unsealed road, three sections were allocated - the first to be re-sheeted with imported gravel, the second to receive a simple maintenance grade and the third to be treated with PolyCom Stabilising Aid.

One month later, a loose fines sweep test (or Ravel Test) was conducted on each section of the road to collect all loose material from a 1 metre x 1 metre test patch. 

Only 426 grams of material was collected from the PolyCom treated section of road, a stark comparison to the maintenance grade and re-sheet sections. See the difference in results in the images below.

What's more, four days prior to testing, the roads were subjected to over an inch of rain.


The Ravel Test results confirm that PolyCom adds water resistance and longevity to the existing road materials, preventing the expense of gravel re-sheeting. 


Call 1800 790 907 or visit our website to find out more about the PolyCom sustainable road maintenance system - in support of the environment and a more sustainable Australia.
