2. What is Stabilizer?
A crushed seed from a very unique plant
Ground into various degrees (sizes) of powder
Blended into specific (proprietary) recipes
Then used to bind many different types of aggregates together.
Binding occurs when water activates the Stabilizer, and it swells.
This swelling binds the aggregate particles together
3. What is Stabilizer? Stabilizer, the raw ingredients,being incorporated with an aggregate at the Blending Plant, in Phoenix, Arizona 4. What is Stabilizer Used For?
Pathways in golf courses, parks recreational facilities, stadiums, etc.
Parking Lots and Paving Stone Sand
Baseball and Softball Diamond infields and warning tracks
Structural Soil Mixtures
Golf Course Bunker liners
And any area that should or needs to have firm safe footing, with an aggregate; can beStabilized

9. The Product Line
Stabilizer an all natural (environmentally conscience) powder that will absorb water
Stalok A Polymer added to aggregates, aiding to repel water; by coating all the soil particles, protecting the process from the elements activated by compaction only.
Stalok Binder The original Stabilizer coupled with synthetic binders, to enhance the binding strength for areas of high traffic and extreme environment
Fibers a synthetic fiber that mimics and enhances rooting in sportsfields, and aids in sure-footing in Equestrian Arenas.
Use Specific Products Hilltopper Pitching Mound Clay, StaLok Paving Sand, and Pro Red Infield Mix
10. The Original Stabilizer
Used for the creation of Structural Soil a specified addition to several landscape contracts in the Pacific Northwest
11. The Original Stabilizer
According to Bylaw No. 1565-2006, for the City of Abbotsford (AbbotsfordBC2003TreePlanting.pdf)
Structural Soil Shall include:
4 cubic meters of aggregate stone
1.5 cubic meters of growing medium
2 kilograms of Stabilizer
12. StaLok - Polymer
The Polymer is a next Generation Stabilizer Solution.
These long chain molecules bind, by coating all particles; creating protection from the elements.
The product is activated by compaction,
and does not require water.
Surfaces can maintain the Natural look while
being as strong, yet more flexible than asphalt.
Should you want to move your creation;
no problem, this product is 100% Recyclable
pick it up and move it to its next area for use again

The Hybrid Product that can be calledSuper Stabilizer
A longer lasting product than the original
A harder surface once installation is complete
Quicker job completion
The natural binder from the original Stabilizer
As well as synthetic binders
15. Stalok Binder
Super Stabilizer is water activated and semi-porous
16. Stalok Binder Cartpath underrenovation a beforeand after as the productis being applied 17. Stalok Binder This cartpath is more than 1 year old Notice that some of the larger aggregate has come loose, but overall the path is solid, no potholes and not holding any water. Pictures taken December 10,2008 -installed October, 2007 15 mm - aggregate 18. Stalok Binder This is the new aggregatebeing used for the cartpathrenovation, this Fall. Notice the smaller aggregatesize.There will be farless chipping as in theprevious slide 4mm - aggregate December, 2008 19. Stalok Binder The Finished Product Compaction with cart traffic and furtheractivation with rainfall will continue tofirm the pathway for 8-12 months 20. Stalok Binder
Created an area that has been cut out 4-5 inches (the pathway between the turfgrass)
Add a solid road base material from 2-2.5 inches
21. Stalok Binder
Mixing with the aggregate is the most important aspect of having a StaLok Binder pathway become a success
The addition of water during the mixing process is suggested, as it will reduce the watering time on site
Once mixed, spreading of the product should focus on the least amount of post-mixing contact get the product into place with minimal hand raking as this will move the binding agent out of contact with the aggregate
22. Stalok Binder
Installation Requirements: (cont)
Once the material is in place, begin to water the mixture.
Ensure that the material is wet throughout the profile
Watering and checking moisturedepth above 23. Stalok Binder
Installation Requirements: (cont)
If possible the renovated area should set for at least 24 hours; at which time a 3-5 ton pavement roller (no vibration) should be used to compact the area
As the area will be used by golf carts or vehicles this traffic will also aid in the compaction over time
24. Stalok Binder
Over time the surface will continue to set up, or become more firm
Some of the aggregate may chip out, but can be brushed away leaving the binder and finer aggregate exposed from underneath
Repairs are simple, as any area that is unacceptable, is simply cut out and new material is placed in the area of concern watered, compacted and back in use
25. Stalok Binder
And change it to this: 26. Fibers
The Fibers create a network within the rootzone in harmony with existing rooting.
This leads to better traction, safer footing and healthier plants, that have to be able to within stand the traffic stresses placed on them
Fibers come as long singular strands
Or as a mini-mesh, that expands and contracts as it settles in the rootzone 28. Field Tested Uses for Fibers
Grass Parking lots
Golf cart traffic at fairway entrance and exit points
Field use (soccer, football, rugby)
Footing for horse racing or jumping
