Effect of the initial soil moisture content and various concentrations of Curasol AE and Tylose 666 on the formation and stability of dune sand aggregates



Effect of the initial soil moisture content and various concentrations of Curasol AE and Tylose 666 on the formation and stability of dune sand aggregates



Mededelingen van de Faculteit Landbouwwetenschappen, Rijksuniversiteit Gent 39(3): 1416-1420



Addition of Tylose increased aggregate formation but did not affect aggregate stability. For sand treated with soil conditioners an aggregate percentage of > 40 and a stability index of < 1 are considered good. In general, for the formation of stable dune sand aggregates with 0-10% initial soil moisture, a mixture of 1% Curasol AE (diluted polyvinyl acetate-dibutyl maleate emulsion) is incorporated with the sand.
