Organic-Lock™

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 Blended Aggregate (OLBA).

ORGANIC-LOCK BENEFITS

Environmental Friendly

Environmentally-Friendly

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

Water Permeable

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

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

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

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

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

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.
