Cohesive soils are very often found in the soil subbase. In order to be a fully-fledged building subbase, they must be improved. A popular way to improve is to stabilise with binders. In addition to common cement, mixtures of Portland clinker, ash, slag and additives, known as hydraulic road binders, are used. Standard binders allow for increased compressive strength, but do not provide the expected frost resistance that should protect the road structure from frost damage. In the paper the use of a hydrophobic additive of organic origin, produced from natural raw materials – vegetable and animal fats is proposed to reduce water absorption into the stabilised layer, providing improved compression strength and frost resistance of the layer. The addition of diamidoamine lactate to the soil–cement mixtures increased their compressive strength 3 to 8 times, for samples containing 7% binder and 2 to 2.5 times for samples containing 9%, in relation to standard binders.
