In the past, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride have been perceived as cost-effective measures for controlling dust on unpaved roads. At the time, they were preferable to water truck dispersal, as the chloride agents required less total man-hours in the application. In some regions, water access could also have been an issue.
Unfortunately, chloride-based dust control agents also have their own drawbacks. Since they are corrosive in nature they require operators to use special equipment during application. Over time the chloride could also have an effect on storage tanks, distribution trucks, and equipment.
To help address these problems, EnviRoad® offers Earthbind® 100 and Lignin Sulfonate. Both of these dust control agents are considered non-toxic and non-corrosive, which will save significant costs in storage, safety, and application equipment.
EnviRoad® can easily ship Earthbind® 100 and Lignin Sulfonate to many areas around the world, including the United States (including Hawaii and Alaska), Canada, the Middle East, and parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. It can be transported and stored in its concentrated form right up to the time of application. This will help save you costs and allow you to keep more dust control agent on hand.
Our road experts are ready to help you understand the necessary dilution and application rates. If you are looking for a non-corrosive dust control agent for maintaining unpaved roads, you should call 1.800.536.2650 to speak an EnviRoad® representative.
