STRATEZYME is a complex non-bacterial concentrated multi-enzymatic formulation that alters the properties of earth materials, providing one of the most cost-effective methods to stabilize roads and seal ponds and landfills.

STRATEZYME is one of the world’s finest products for road stabilization and pond and/or landfill sealing. Although it has been available for the past 10 years on an experimental basis, due to a recent major expansion in manufacturing capacities, STRATEZYME is now available for the first time to the commercial and industrial marketplace.

Compared to all other road treatment materials now in use, STRATEZYME, a concentrated enzyme formulation, alters the properties of earth material to produce superior road base stabilization. Developed and proven through many years of field-testing, STRATEZYME provides additional advantages to road builders, communities and the environment by being non-toxic, non-corrosive and totally biodegradable.

When mixed with water and applied prior to compaction, STRATEZYME acts upon organic fines contained in the soil through a catalytic bonding process, producing a strong cementation action. Unlike inorganic or petroleum based products which temporarily hold soil materials together, STRATEZYME causes the soil to bond during compaction into a dense permanent base which resists water penetration, weathering and wear. This process takes place in 72 hours under normal summer conditions.

In addition to creating a new and better way of building and maintaining roads, STRATEZYME is being used successfully in the construction of lakebeds, mine leach pads, ponds, landfill liners, and wherever there is a need to increase the load-bearing capacity of the soil and to reduce plasticity and permeability.

STRATEZYME lowers the surface tension of water, which promotes fast and thorough penetration and dispersal of moisture. This action causes hydrated clay particles to be pressed into and to fill the voids throughout the soil, thus forming a tight, dense permanent stratum. The increased lubricity of soil particles allows the designated soil density to be reached with less compaction effort.
STRATEZYME reduces by as much as 25%, the amount of water required to reach the optimum moisture level of soil, since it promotes rapid saturation and inhibits surface evaporation. The STRATEZYME cementation action increases the soil bearing characteristics by promoting a closer bonding of soil particles. This reduces the tendency of soil to expand after compaction and results in a strong, stable earth layer. By achieving greater bonding density, soil materials resist migration of water. A properly treated STRATEZYME base becomes almost impervious to water penetration and much more resistant to frost heaving.
If sufficient fines are present, road builders can now construct a new road base using existing soil materials without trucking in additional aggregate. Mixing STRATEZYME with the top 5 or 6 inches of soil will produce a road base that has more strength and less permeability than can be attained with any other treatment. If imported material is needed, less expensive, dirty aggregate can be used. The dirty fines are needed to bond the material together. “Dirty” here means 15% to 20% cohesive fines passing a 200-mesh screen. Only 15 gallons of STRATEZYME is needed to treat one mile of a 25-foot-wide roadway to a depth of 6 inches.
STRATEZYME can be applied over wide weather and locale ranges. From temperatures near freezing to hot summer days, from rain forests to deserts, lake bottoms to earthen dams, STRATEZYME will provide superior results. New or existing roads treated with STRATEZYME to the recommended depth will retain a tough, rupture-resistant surface that requires minimal maintenance, often requiring no additional “dressing” for a number of years.
STRATEZYME is sold in liquid concentrate form. This eliminates the bulk storage, pre-mixing and handling of large amounts of materials. It will not corrode equipment.
STRATEZYME is non-toxic. It requires no special handling equipment and no special containment procedures as required with toxic and/or corrosive agents. It does not irritate skin tissue and causes no rashes or burns.
STRATEZYME contains no combustible materials, is non-explosive and can be used near open flames. It is non-gaseous and can be stored in poorly ventilated areas. It will not harm humans, animals, fish or vegetation under normal use and it is totally biodegradable.
