Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS LITHIFICATION?
Lithification is a complex process involving naturally occurring chemicals, minerals, heat, moisture, pressure and cementation that combine to form complex aluminosilicates, in which soil gradually becomes solid rock over many years.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Our LithTec™ Road Solution is an eco-friendly trade secret technology that accelerates the lithification process of turning soil to stone from years to about 24 hours.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The LithTec™ Road Solution accelerated process uses a derivative of naturally occurring potash (7th most common element in the earth’s crust) along with other trade secret chemistries that combine and create a chemical reaction with the natural elements common in all soils to turn your soil into stone with a rock-hard, water repellent surface in about one day in most cases.
WHY IS IT BETTER?
LithTec™ Road Solution yields extremely low and slow permeability with outstanding hydrophobic (water repellent) qualities, and generates record high strengths with excellent shrink/swell and stress-strain (flexible) characteristics.
In short, Lithified Technologies™ makes a longer lasting, better road that is lower in cost in most cases, with no ongoing grading maintenance or new materials cost.
DOES IT HURT THE ENVIRONMENT?
LithTec™ Road Solution has passed Synthetic Precipitation Leaching Procedure (SPLP) EPA Method 1312 confirming that it does not have any harmful chemicals that leach into the environment.
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU USE?
In most cases, we use your soil with our environmentally friendly LithTec™ Technology.
