By adding PolyCom Stabilising Aid to the existing road materials during routine maintenance grading, the cost of buying and importing gravel is reduced, the road materials are effectively recycled, and the roads themselves last longer.
Over the past 14 years, a network of PolyCom distributors across Australia has worked closely with councils to extend the life of their roads, strengthening sub-grade materials with PolyCom for sealed roads and freeways prior to resealing, and recycling road surfaces on hundreds of unsealed roads.
The companies have performed extensive research into just how well PolyCom treated roads perform, finding that when an unsealed road is stabilised with PolyCom, councils can expect to reduce maintenance on that road by four to six times.
Winning both a Banksia Award and Premiers Sustainability Award in 2014, PolyCom gained national support for the sustainable nature of road recycling with the innovative alternative to traditional road maintenance.
PolyCom distributor Betta Roads is a preferred supplier by WALGA, the WA Local Government Association.
With the growing procurement of PolyCom by Australian councils looking to reduce their road maintenance spend and carbon footprint, and achieve the triple bottom line, this is clearly the way to go.
