Versabind® is a finely ground blend of hydraulic calcium silicates and calcium sulfate. While not classified as a cement, Versabind® has cementitious properties. Versabind® is used in various soil applications and as an asphalt antistripping agent.
Versabind® is blended and ground in a traditional cement mill. Physical and chemical characteristics are carefully monitored during manufacturing through the use of state of the art quality control equipment. 60% of Versabind® consists of anhydrite, which is recycled from the chemical industry. Because of this innovative use of a by-product material, the Versabind® production process consumes less than half of the energy required to produce either cement or lime.
Versabind® is effective as an asphalt anti-stripping agent. The dry powder is added during the mixing process in a similar manner to lime. Plant operators have commented that Versabind® flows well and is cleaner. Versabind® is approved for anti-stripping by the
New Mexico Department of Transportation. Contact GCC for more information.
