In the past, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride agents were used as dust control measures to reduce the presence of fugitive dust particles from unpaved roads. These agents came with a bevy of different problems. Their corrosive nature increased maintenance costs on storage tanks as well as application vehicles and equipment. They also have a tendency to draw local wildlife to the roadbed while continuing to pose a threat to local watersheds.
As the years have gone by, more institutions and road maintenance companies have started looking for more cost-effective and ecologically friendly dust control alternatives.
To answer this call to action, EnviRoad® has specially formulated Earthbind® 100 as an effective alternative to chloride-based dust control agents. It uses a modified biopolymer that can be stored and transported in concentration. Since it uses less space and is non-corrosive, it will save significant overhead costs.
Once it has been applied to an unpaved roadbed and cured, it will form a non-hygroscopic matrix with potential dust particles and aggregate materials. This allows Earthbind® 100 to remain in the roadbed for a longer amount of time, which also saves in annual maintenance and reapplication costs.
If you are in need of a cost-effective, ecologically friendly dust control measure, you should call 1-800-536-2650 to learn more about the Earthbind® 100 offered by EnviRoad®.
