GENERAL INFORMATION

Ven-Extend™ is an alkaline salt used to extend the set-time of Ven-Extend™plugs. Prior to the addition of Ven-Block™, the mixing water should be buff- ered to the desired pH by the addition of Ven-Extend™.

Ven-Extend™ may be used to extend the pumping times of Ven-Block™ from 15 minutes to 5 hours or more in fresh water, sea water, and sodium or potassium chloride brines.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Ven-Set 950™ is designed to consolidate, stabilize and assist in compacting soils. Compaction and soil stabilization are important in many areas but is essential in preparing the base soil in roadbeds. Ven-Set 950™ is a proprietary product formulated around highly reactive, inorganic and organic polymers containing dispersants, surface active agents and other synergists. Ven-Set 950™ gels, crosslinks, polymerizes and hardens in the presence of many of the materials commonly found in soil. The proprietary compounds in Ven-Set 950™ are designed to react with many of the inorganic and organic components in soil such as limestone, iron ores, caliche, clays, gumbos, sandstone, cement, etc. Ven-Set 950™ is a completely environmentally safe product. It is non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable and non-allergenic. Ven-Set 950™ is easy to use. The water-soluble concentrate is diluted on site with the proper amount of water and applied with a conventional water truck. Ven-Set 950™ is recommended for any area of soil stabilization where it is desirable to reduce permeability to water, improve load-bearing capacity, and to reduce soil plasticity. Embankments, levees, ponds, and temporary load bearing areas are other potential areas requiring soil stabilization. Although the Ven-Set 950™ binding process involves a relatively complex set of chemical steps and reactions, it is simple to apply under field conditions. Ven-Set 950™ is a highly effective dust and wind erosion control agent. The binding agents in Ven-Set 950™ form strong, cohesive films between dust particles. These binding capabilities bind and agglomerate potential dust particles into larger size particles that are less susceptible to dust formation.
