Lignin sulfonate is a byproduct of the paper industry. According to midwest researchers, here are some excellent benefits:
Greatly increases dry strength of soil similar to 3 in. of asphalt concrete.
Under dry conditions out-performs bituminous binders.
During rain, disperses clay which in turn swells and plugs pores, reducing water penetration.
Tends to stay slightly plastic, permitting reshaping and additional traffic compaction.
Addition of calcium carbonate slurry to counteract corrosive effects reduces solubility, prolonging dust-laying capability.
Ammonium-based sulfite liquors (lignin sulfonate) are superior to sugar- free calcium-base sulfides for aggregate binding.
