MADE FROM A RENEWABLE PLANT RESOURCE
Organic-Lock™ is a patented powdered binder made from a renewable plant resource and specialized proprietary additives. It’s designed to be blended with crushed aggregate to create natural looking pathways and surfaces. The binder locks the aggregate in place to minimize erosion and maintenance, all the while allowing sitting water to permeate into the groundwater table. Organic-Lock™ licensed Dealers blend the Organic-Lock™ binder into locally sourced aggregates to create and supply Organic-Lock™Stabilized Aggregate (OLSA).
Our environmentally friendly Organic-Lock™ binder is the strongest organic binder on the market today. Organic-Lock™is made from 100% naturally occurring materials.
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.
When installed to specifications, Organic-Lock™ stabilized aggregates qualify them as wheelchair accessible and Organic-Lock™ meets the maneuverability performance requirements of ASTM F 1951-09b.
Unlike alternative products that use a chemical reaction to stabilize surfaces and are prone to cracking, Organic-Lock™ stabilized 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.
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.
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.
Organic-Lock™ pathways can qualify for credits towards LEED® certification.
