Dust control and maintenance of unpaved roads is a significant concern in many locations throughout the United States (and even Hawaii and Alaska) and various locations around the globe including parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. When fugitive dust particles are released into the air they can pose safety hazards, impair visibility, and potentially cause respiratory distress.
Some agencies, entities, and businesses will attempt to control dust problems on unpaved roads with frequent applications from a water truck. Unfortunately, this can prove to be a prohibitive cost of manhours and fuel for large areas in need of dust control.
In the past, magnesium chloride and calcium chloride have been used as an alternative to water trucks. Unfortunately, these agents are typically corrosive, thus posing their own safety concerns, and they might not always meet the local or governmental regulations for the region.
To answer these important concerns, EnviRoad® is proud to provide Earthbind® 100 as a cost-effective, non-corrosive, and ecologically friendly method for controlling dust and maintaining unpaved roads.
Earthbind® 100 uses a modified bio-polymer base to create a stable matrix between aggregate materials, soil particles, and other components of the unpaved road. Once cured it will not be hydroscopic, allowing Earthbind® 100 to remain in the roadbed far longer than magnesium or calcium chloride.
It can be shipped in concentration via truck, train or internationally by ship. Just dilute to the specific ratio for your road conditions once it is ready for application. If you need a cost-effective, non-corrosive, and ecologically friendly method for controlling dust and maintaining unpaved roads, you should call 800-536-2650 to speak to a representative at EnviRoad® about Earthbind® 100.
