Ciment Quebec Inc. (CQI) has in-depth expertise in cement-based engineered soils. Cement-based engineered soil technology is used to stabilize the soil of a site that is not strong enough to support a building or road. Portland cement is mixed in the soil (sometimes with aggregates), along with water, and then compacted. The resulting mix, called cement-based soil, is stable and strong enough for construction. We can adapt the mix according to project requirements. There are three types of cement-based engineered soils: cement-modified soil, cement-stabilized bases and full-depth reclamation with cement.
CQI has the appropriate equipment for laying these cement-based soils, including mobile Pugmill continuous mixing plants, and cement spreaders/proportioners.
CQI designed a cement specifically adapted to this application to obtain the best results possible on the work site. ProBASE™ cement is made using an eco-energetic production process with low air emissions known as Synergia™, which is unique to Ciment Quebec Inc.
