A revolutionary high-performance organic binder for water permeable, environmentally-friendly, decomposed granite and other aggregate surfaces. Organic-Lock™ is the product of extensive scientific research. The result: an environmentally-friendly binder that resists erosion while simultaneously remaining water permeable and maintaining strength and stability.
Benefits of Organic-Lock™
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™ blended aggregates qualify them as wheelchair accessible and Organic-Lock™ meets the
maneuverability performance requirements of ASTM F 1951-09b.
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.
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.
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.
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.
