PISE (Pneumatically Impacted Stabilized Earth)





What Pneumatically Impacted Stabilized Earth is:

Technically, PISE is a type of rammed earth. A mixture of mud and cement is packed into a form. Rammed earth requires you to build formwork into which you pack earth, and PISE improves on this process. With PISE, you only build one side of the formwork and spray the earth into the form. PISÉ offers all the environmental benefits of rammed earth, but with a much shorter construction process.

PISE mix consists of lightweight dry fluffed soil mixed with sand and dry powdered cement. The mixture is blown much the same way that gunite is applied.  PISE mix is a blend of 3/8" minus Nuns Canyon Quarry fines, light colored plaster sand and block colored cement. 

A refinement of rammed earth, pneumatically impacted stabilized earth (PISÉ) creates a beautiful wall made of only natural and healthy materials. PISE shares the beauty of rammed earth but is much less labor intensive.
