Solutions - Cement Base

Ensure that your project doesn't fail at the base. Use cement to strengthen your soil, base, and reclaimed roads.

Cement-Treated Base

Cement-treated base (CTB) is an intimate mixture of aggregate material and/or granular soils combined with measured amounts of portland cement and water that hardens after compaction and curing to form a durable paving material. A bituminous or portland cement concrete wearing course is placed on the CTB to complete the pavement structure. Cement-treated base is widely used as a pavement base for highways, roads, streets, parking areas, airports, and materials handling and storage areas.

Full-Depth Reclamation

Deteriorating roads are a constant problem for cities and counties. That’s why engineers and public works officials are turning to a process called Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR) with cement.


Soil-cement (cement-modified soil) is a highly compacted mixture of soil/aggregate, cement, and water. It is widely used as a low-cost pavement base for roads, residential streets, parking areas, airports, shoulders, and materials-handling and storage areas. Its advantages of great strength and durability combine with low first cost to make it an outstanding value in its field. 

Soil-cement is sometimes called cement-stabilized base, or cement-treated aggregate base. Regardless of the name, the principles governing its composition and construction are the same.
