How It Works

Since the introduction of ionic chemical clay stabilization technology back in the 1950’s, there have been many scientific studies to better understand the mechanism of clay stabilization produced by the application of an ionic chemical clay stabilizer such as AGSS-ICS.  In fact, our founder studied it in a comparison to other types of chemical stabilization (lime, potassium, lignands, fly ash, etc.) during his graduate studies in the early 70’s and their conclusions are what started his interest in the technology.

We routinely arrange educational meetings for engineering, construction, architectural and other types of firms who are interested in learning more about these processes and methods for stabilizing swelling clays.  Additionally; the participants can earn Professional Development Hours (PDH’s) during these presentations.  The best way to get a better understanding of this technology is to talk with an AGSS representative.  We can also provide more technical information; including Specifications and Methodology for the application of the AGSS-ICS, case histories, laboratory and field test results, and University studies.  Take a few seconds to fill in the contact form to the right and we will get in touch to see how we can best get you the information you need.
