Soil Hardening Agents: Introduction
- Chemical agents used to increase strength and hardness of the soil are called soil hardening agents. The soil hardening process is adopted to enhance properties of soil such as tensile strength, load bearing capacity, and overall performance. The application of soil hardening agents helps hydrophobic surface withstand extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain and frost.
- Various materials are used as soil hardening agents. These include fiber, polymer, cement, enzyme, lime, and bitumen. Soil hardening agents are commercially available in flake, powder, and liquid forms.
- Rapid urbanization in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil has boosted the construction industry in these countries. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the demand for soil hardening agents during the forecast period. However, environmental concerns regarding soil pollution due to soil hardening agents are estimated to hamper the market during the forecast period.
