GMS Products. Soil Stabilizer



GMS Soil Stabilizer is a cost-effective method of bolstering the bearing capacity and shear strength of expansive, clay-based soil. Soil treated with GMS Soil Stabilizer:

  • Compacts easily, eliminating the “rise and fall” of soil due to soil moisture content.
  • Possesses enhanced durability - resisting rutting, buckling, and potholes.
  • Repels moisture, minimizing the effects of freeze/thaw cycles.
  • “Locks-in-place” the traction coat to aid in dust control.

GMS Soil Stabilizer has been laboratory-tested and is environmentally-safe to soil and groundwater.

Potential Uses

Stabilization of soils in the base and sub-base of:

  • Levees/Embankments
  • Railroad Beds
  • Existing Roadways
  • New Roadways
  • New and Existing Construction Sites
  • Structure Foundations
  • Parking Areas
  • Reservoirs
  • Airport Runways
  • Landfill cap and liner

GMS Soil Stabilizer Process

The GreenMarket Solutions (GMS) Soil Stabilization Process is an innovative approach to stabilize the soils in the base and sub-base of existing roads and highways, new construction sites as well as existing buildings, new roadways, existing airfields, parking areas, reservoirs, levees/embankments, and railroad beds.

What the GMS Soil Stabilization Process Does

The GMS Soil Stabilization Process increases the bearing capacity of the soil. Any increase in the bearing capacity of soil automatically increases the shear strength of the soil proportionately.

The Way the Product Works

Most surface failures are directly related to base and sub-base failure due to contamination by clay material accelerated by the migratory patterns of water. Freeze-thaw cycles and rain-laden soils cause normal rutting, buckling, chuck holes, and further deterioration of surfaces.

GreenMarket Solutions employs GMS Soil Stabilizer, GMS’ proprietary product. The application of this product to the surface can be done via the following methods:

Surface Broadcasting: Equipment used in regular construction or repair operations is well-suited to this method of application. The area is first scarified with a motor grader. The product is then applied to the surface via a water truck. The area is then scarified once more in order to incorporate the product into the soil.

Injection: This method can be used on both unpaved and paved surfaces. Holes are drilled into the soil, asphalt, or concrete surface. The GreenMarket Solutions Soil Stabilizer is then pressure-injected into the holes, saturating the ground. The holes will naturally fill in with soil once vehicles begin traveling over the surface.


  • The application of this product into clay soil creates an ionic exchange that forces the soil to drain and prepares them for compaction, often to values exceeding 100 percent proctor.
  • The bearing capacity and shear strength of the surface will be bolstered. World-wide case studies have shown that the process reduces initial and maintenance costs while increasing the durability of roadways dramatically, which ultimately reduces reconstruction costs.
  • Another effect is that rutting, buckling, chuck holes and summertime dust will be reduced, due to the ‘locking –in place” of the traction coat of aggregate into a permanent nature.
