PERMA-ZYME is a unique, soil-stabilizing product with the potential to
significantly reduce your overall costs for road construction and maintenance. Perma-Zyme is a non-toxic formulation of enzyme-rich materials that is
manufactured through a natural fermentation process using only sugars
and other 100% natural, organic compounds.
When mixed with water and applied during compaction, Perma-Zyme acts upon the soil’s organic fines through a catalytic bonding process producing a strong cementation effect. The result is a durable and water-resistant mix that can be used in any climatic environment as a sub-base or as a primary surface. Typically, the bonding process will be sufficiently cured within 72 hours to permit a road’s use by normal traffic.
The product is both safe and convenient to handle. It is highly concentrated and is available in handy 5-gallon
containers. Only 15 gallons of Perma-Zyme are needed for a one-mile road surface, 25-feet wide and 6-inches deep. No special construction or handling equipment is required to apply Perma-Zyme, only a blade or mixer/reclaimer, a water truck and a roller.
Because the enzymes in Perma-Zyme interact with a wide variety of soil materials, maximum use can be made of existing soils. This minimizes the need to haul in additional materials. And because it is mixed on site, construction crews will encounter no storage or waste problems.
All these factors make Perma-Zyme highly economical with considerable cost savings of 3-5 times when compared with conventional road construction methods.
Again What are Enzymes?
Enzymes act as catalysts for virtually every chemical reaction that occurs in plant and animal life.
Enzymes are naturally occurring protein molecules. Each enzyme is specifically tailored to promote a chemical reaction within or between other molecules. The enzymes themselves are unchanged by these reactions; rather, they serve as a “host” or “matchmaker” for the other molecules, greatly accelerating the rate of normal chemical and physical reactions.
The specific nature of enzymatic actions can be likened to a “lock and key.” If the target molecule or molecules do not have the right properties, the enzyme will not serve as a “host” for promoting the desired chemical reaction. This is why Perma-Zyme is unique and out-performs all other road treatment materials.
Perma-Zyme is formulated with an enzyme-rich material which was the product of a natural fermentation process using cane sugars and other proprietary organic compounds. The enzymes have been tailored to provide the “lock” for numerous soil materials and promote the desired alteration of their properties, causing a rapid cementation process to occur.
Perma-Zyme is also blended with a biodegradable surfactant that reduces the surface tension, bringing the enzymes in closer contact with the soil materials, further promoting enzymatic reactions.
