NATURALPAVE ROAD STABILIZATION
Upgrade your unpaved roads to NaturalPave

The environmentally positive road stabilization alternative from the innovators of soil stabilization technology.

NaturalPave Road Stabilization System

Midwest's NaturalPave Road Stabilization is an innovative stabilization system specifically designed to improve unpaved road performance, strength and longevity. The NaturalPave Road Stabilization consists of stabilizing the upper 4-8" of the existing road surface or in-place native soils with the option to include a selected surfacing technique that provides enhanced durability and all-weather traction while maintaining a natural aesthetic look.


NaturalPave Base Stabilization

NaturalPave® Base Stabilization is designed and installed to hold up to the most extreme traffic demands while maintaining a long service life. It is created by incorporating one of Midwest’s patented, environmentally friendly products into the existing soil or aggregate to create a strong, high performance base using the in-place material.

NaturalPave Surface

If desired, a specifically selected surface course is embedded into the surface of the NaturalPave Stabilized Base prior to the base curing. A variety of surface course options are available based on the traffic, desired look/aesthetics, performance/longevity and environmental considerations, among other things.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

STEP 5

STEP 1

GRADE EXISTING DETERIORATED ASPHALT OR UNPAVED ROADWAYS.

  • Areas to receive Midwest’s NaturalPave stabilization emulsion shall be graded and scarified to the minimum depth and width of intended placement area.
  • The soil shall be scarified by tilling, disking or ripping to achieve uniform preparation of the soil to the planned minimum depth.
  • The soil should be damp at the time of scarification to reduce dust and aid in pulverization.
  • Surface gravel and stones are to be removed or if possible thoroughly mixed with surrounding soils to obtain a homogenous blend.

STEP 2

BLEND GRINDINGS INTO SUB-BASE.

  • Apply proprietary formula to the desired area at the instructed rate with a pressurized spray system and thoroughly blend into the soil until the homogenous mixture is obtained to established depth.
  • Mixing shall be done with commercialized mixing equipment or motor grader (blade mixing).

STEP 3

BLEND PRODUCT

  • The blending method utilized shall result in a uniformly treated mixture at optimum moisture content.
  • The amount of area mixed each day should be limited to that which the contractor can thoroughly mix and compact within that work day.

STEP 4

PERFORM COMPACTION

  • Begin initial compaction as soon as installation will bear roller without undue displacement, to be conducted with pneumatic roller or soil compactor.
  • Generally, no more than two passes are required for initial compaction.
  • Begin final compaction as soon as possible following initial compaction, using 5- to 10-ton double drum roller.
  • Roll surface in final compaction as required, to eliminate roller marks and remove any surface marks from the initial compaction.
  • Make number of passes necessary to achieve an aesthetically pleasing unyielding surface and 95% optimum compaction.
  • When optimum moisture and specified compaction are achieved, the surface needs to cure prior to final applications.

STEP 5

APPLY TOPCOAT

  • When surface has dried, typically 24-48 hours after final compaction, apply seal coats at specified application rate.
  • Seal coats may be applied in multiple coats, allowing surface to dry between applications, to prevent running and to insure uniform coverage.
