Stabilisation may be defined as a process by which the intrinsic properties of a pavement material are altered by the addition of a stabilisation binder to meet performance expectations in its operating, geological and climatic environment. Part 4L of the Guide to Pavement Technology discussed the types of various stabilising binders used in road construction, their properties, manufacture, chemical reactions during the stabilisation process and safety considerations associated with their use. The types of binders described are; lime, cement, cementitious pozzolans, bitumen, chemical and synthetic polymers.
