ORGANIC-LOCK™ BENEFITS

Environmentally-Friendly

Our environmentally friendly Organic-Lock™ binder is the strongest organic binder on the market today. Organic-Lock™is made from 100% naturally occurring materials.

WATER PERMEABLE

On contact with water, Organic-Lock™ creates a gel that binds the aggregate particles together and allows excess water to pass directly through to the groundwater table.

WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE

When installed to specifications, Organic-Lock™ blended aggregates qualify them as wheelchair accessible and Organic-Lock™ meets the maneuverability performance requirements of ASTM F 1951-09b.

Resists Erosion

Organic-Lock™ stabilized surfaces offer significantly improved resistance to erosion over unstabilized surfaces. When activated by water, Organic-Lock™ forms an adhesive gel which bonds aggregate particles together while still allowing water to permeate through to the ground below. Organic-Lock™ is particularly effective on sloped surfaces where pathways and other surfaces are most prone to washouts and rutting due to fast moving water.

Self-Healing

Unlike alternative products that use a chemical reaction to stabilize surfaces and are prone to cracking, Organic-Lock™ blended aggregate surfaces remain completely flexible and able to withstand thermal movement or settlement of the sub base materials. In conditions where cracking does occur, rain water reactivates the Organic-Lock™ allowing the surface to self- heal and naturally fill any cracks making it a very low maintenance pathway stabilizer option.

Simple Maintenance

Maintenance is easy. The material can be re-worked by adding water first (which reactivates the Organic-Lock™ gel allowing for physical manipulation), followed by scarification and re-compaction.

Natural Aesthetic

The large aggregate particles will chip off on the surface to create a loose, natural-looking, surface texture. Organic-Lock™ offers that sought-after calming, natural aesthetic of aggregate surfaces, while still maintaining the stability associated with non-aggregate surfaces.

Reduces Dust

Organic-Lock™ swells into a gel when it comes in contact with water. When it dries, this gel grips onto the particles of stone and dust and locks them in place which helps prevent dust from blowing away in the wind or being kicked up by traffic.

Sustainability / LEED® Compliance

Organic-Lock™ pathways can qualify for credits towards LEED® certification.
