The resulting product, emulsion-treated base (ETB), may then be surfaced with a wearing course for trafficking. Several studies have been performed to assess the long-term strength of ETB in the field.

Waterproofing increases soil strength by preventing or reducing the intrusion of moisture into the base. Fines contents should be between 10 and 15 percent in most cases to be economical. Asphalt emulsion is typically used for stabilization. The type of emulsion will depend upon the soil type and the amount of fine material present.
