WHEN IS IT USED?

Water sticks to almost anything including clay.  This attraction causes clay soil to swell.  The trick is to use a non swelling chemical to stick to the clay before water does.  When an appropriate concentration of the right chemicals is injected into clay, the chemicals stick to the clay molecules and prevent the clays from absorbing water.  Once in place, the chemicals stay attached to the clays. In a way by injecting the chemicals into the soil and “coating” the clay, you create a moisture barrier, stopping water from causing more foundation upheaval.
