soil stabilizer

[′sȯil ′stab·ə‚līz·ər]
(materials)
A chemical that alters the engineering property of a natural soil; used to stabilize soil slopes, to prepare for building foundations, and to prevent erosion.

soil stabilizer

1. A machine, used in site preparation, that mixes in place earth and added stabilizing materials (such as cement or lime) to obtain higher soil-bearing capacity; rapidly rotating tines pick up and blend the soil with the stabilizing agent.
2. A chemical used to improve the physical properties of soil, 1 or to maintain or increase the stability of a mass of soil.
