Ultracrete Perma-Soil – The cost effective Alternative Reinstatement Material
Ultracrete, market leading specialist in highway repair materials, has introduced another product into its range, further cementing the company’s commitment to its environmental responsibility.
Ultracrete Perma-Soil, Soil Stabiliser, is an alternative reinstatement material - the perfect solution for the backfill and reinstatement of small utility excavations.
Ultracrete Perma-Soil will help you to reduce the cost of reinstating your excavations by converting unearthed spoil into reusable material thus eliminating the need for primary aggregates. It is mixed with the spoil before being compacted back into the excavation to provide an adequate backfill material/sub-base within minutes.
Trench excavations from gas and water asset renewals are in the region of 4.8 million tonnes a year (WRAP 2007: 1). This is comparable to 4.5% of national construction, demolition and excavation waste. Utilising Ultracrete Perma-Soil, minimises the need to haul away materials to landfill sites or backfill on site thus reducing transportation distances, tipping charges and carbon emissions. Using recycled aggregates instead of primary aggregates can reduce C0² emissions by at least 40%.
The amount of useable landfill sites is rapidly decreasing; consequently waste management is a high priority across the board as companies are being forced to comply with landfill regulations. Ultracrete Perma-Soil can help companies to meet these directives.
Ultracrete Perma-Soil meets the requirements as set out in the Utility WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) agreement and the SROH (Specification for the Reinstatement for Openings in Highways). It is very versatile and can be used across a range of highway and footpath applications as well as post, fence and utility pole installations.
