Earthbind® Prime Coat is a quality, versatile, and environmentally friendly penetrating prime cure. Earthbind® Prime Coat can be safely stored and easily applied and was developed as an alternative for the traditional, unsafe asphalt cutback.
Earthbind® Prime is formulated with eco-friendly biopolymers and surfactants, and it does not contain any volatile organic carbons (VOC’s).
As a penetrating prime cure, Earthbind® Prime Coat works by binding loose soil or aggregate particles together, thus strengthening the soil/aggregate matrix and preventing even the smallest particles from becoming airborne as fugitive dust. In addition, Earthbind® Prime Coat will add water resistance to the treated soil particles and will not re-solubilize in rainwater after curing.
Earthbind® Prime Coat is sold and transported in a concentrate and is diluted in water prior to application.
As a penetrating prime cure, Earthbind® Prime:
- Protects the underlying road base layers from moisture by providing a waterproofing layer
- Efficiently binds surface fines together and promotes bonding to a hot mixed asphalt layer
- Effectively penetrates the road base
- Applies quickly without road closures using a water truck or pressurized distributor truck
- Easily washes off of equipment and vehicles before curing
