Water is only used to carry the Perma-zyme into the material. The amount of water that you use is dependent upon the moisture content of the existing material before you start.

To figure how much Perma-zyme is needed:
Calculate the cubic yards of your project and this will tell you how many gallons of Perma-zyme to use.

Figure how much water will be needed to reach optimum moisture for your material. Perma-zyme has a surfactant which will make maximum use of the water. This means you will reach optimum moisture with about 25% less water.

Things to remember:
1 gallon of Perma-zyme treats 150 cubic yards of clayey type material.

The dilution rate is 1 gallon of Perma-zyme to no less than 500 gallons of water. In the spring, soil will be wetter than in the summer or fall so that more water will be needed in drier seasons.

If Perma-zyme is not diluted properly it will not set up.

The Perma-zyme treated material will not set up until fully compacted.

If material is dry after Perma-zyme is mixed thoroughly, add plain water to reach optimum moisture. Remember that if you do not thoroughly mix the Perma-zyme into the material it will not set up. The treated material will accept water until compaction takes place.
After curing, water will run-off the Perma-zyme treated material. Ice heaves are also greatly reduced.

Optimum temperature is above 60 degrees for curing in about 72 hours. Colder temperatures will dramatically slow the curing time.

Cured Permazyme treated material can be reactivated by spraying a diluted solution of Perma-zyme onto the material which allows it to be reworked.

Perma-zyme is a permanent treatment; over 10 years has been experienced with no failures. Perma-zyme does not migrate outside of the treated area.
