ANT Stone Roads
The ANT Stone Roads Technology allows creating a monolithic stone plate from a wide range of materials, such as waste of rock grinding, low-strength stone materials, various types of soils, and waste of mining and metallurgical industries. A stone plate created is of high strength and resistant to deformations. It does not fear impacts of high loads, water, cycles of frosting and defrosting, and effects of the adverse environmental and weather conditions. Roads built in compliance with the ANT Stone Roads Technology are operated in more than 15 countries. The use of this technology offers new opportunities, achieves a number of technical and environmental goals and lowers the estimated costs of road construction.
The field of application of the ANT Stone Roads Technology
— Creating bases of high-traffic roads (federal highways, district and municipal roads);
— Creating pavements of low-traffic roads (countryside, technical, haul roads);
— Creating bases and pavements of industrial facilities (ports, industrial plants, warehouses).
The ANT Stabilizer
The ANT Soil Stabilizer (further ANT Stabilizer) is a complex organic agent that aims to perform reactions of reduction-oxidation in a material.
The ANT Soil Stabilizer produces a directed reaction of reduction-oxidation by exposure to molecular oxygen on the surface of the particles of the material to be strengthened. This results in the formation of new crystalline bonds between the particles of the material thus strengthened. As a result, an artificial stone material is formed. This reaction replicates the natural processes of formation of stone sedimentary rocks.
The ANT Stabilizer is completely safe for man and the environment, both in a concentrated form and in a water solution.
The ANT Stabilizer application rules.
The ANT Stabilizer is used as a water solution. The amounts required of the ANT Stabilizer and water to prepare a water solution are calculated based on the weight of the material, which is used to create a plate.
The consumption rate of the ANT Stabilizer is 0.0035% to 0.01% of the weight of the material, which is used to create a stone plate. The recommended consumption rate is 0.007% of the weight of the material. The amount of water required is calculated proceeding from the optimal compaction humidity and natural humidity of the material used. The necessary amounts of the ANT Stabilizer and water are mixed in a separate container and then the water solution prepared is used to execute the works.

Uniqueness of the ANT Stone Roads Technology
The ANT Stabilizer is completely safe for man and nature. Also, the application of the technology allows to use various types of waste, which will solve a number of environmental challenges.
The new artificial material is not only very firm, but it is also resistant to deformations, water saturation, and cycles of frosting and defrosting. The great longevity of the material created allows operating the roads in all climatic zones.
Due to the use of low-price materials, a decrease in the thicknesses of the levelling and finishing layers of the road structure, the high strength of the stone plate, and a reduction in the construction periods, this technology lowers road construction costs by more than 25 per cent compared to other methods.
Possible use of a wide range of waste materials, such as, namely: weak stone materials and various types of soils. Also, it is possible to use various equipment and road construction methods.
No Maintenance Required
The stone plate will not be deformed nor cracks appear in it in the processes of increasing its strength and further operation. This is achieved by the formation of new crystalline bonds between the particles of the material as a result of the reaction of reduction-oxidation initiated by the ANT Stabilizer.
The Execution of Works in a Non-Stop Mode
A monolithic stone plate can, immediately after its compaction, withstand heavy loads of cargo transport. The main condition is to limit the speed of vehicles down to 20 - 40 km/h on the first few days, which will prevent the top layer of the stone plate from destruction.
