The solution of using organic and inorganic chemical agents to strengthen loading capacity of soil for base, subbase or surface layers in unpaved road pavement has been applied for a long time in the world. In Vietnam, the method has been applied with conventional such as lime, cement, fly ash, or bitumen. Since the years of 2000s, the new soil stabilizers have been introduced to Vietnam. However, the price of the imported admixtures is still the barrier for practical applications. DBS-06 is a domestic lignosulfonate soil stabilizer synthesized from the paper industry waste, which was collected from the HoaBinh paper factory located in Ky Son District, HoaBinh Province. The study program was conducted to investigate the main mechanical properties of the soil specimens stabilized by DBS-06intending for used in road construction. The test results showed that the soil treated with DBS-06 was significantly improved the strength of compression, split tensile and elastic modulus, the three critical indicators representing forload bearing capacity of the material, in both normal and water saturated conditions.
