Earthbind® Dust Control on Roads Previously Treated with Chlorides

Magnesium and calcium chlorides are commonly used as dust suppressants on unpaved roads. These chloride compounds are used for dust control because they are hygroscopic and deliquescent…meaning that they have the ability to absorb moisture from the humid air. The absorbed moisture helps limit dust by keeping the surface of the road moist enough to hold the dust particles down... read more »

Chlorides are often used as a dust control agent since they are hygroscopic and deliquescent -- the ability to... read more »

Frequent rainstorms can result in roadbed erosion while dry conditions can increase hazardous dust levels on the roadbed. EnviRoad® offers base-stabilization products like Earthbind® Stabilizer... read more »

Better Base Stabilization with Earthbind® Prime Coat

The use of a prime coat is common in many bituminous pavement projects. A prime coat is meant to protect the subgrade road bed from the effects of water, excess moisture and weathering. Any significant moisture in the subgrade affects its strength and integrity. This can lead directly to early degradation of the road surface, or even outright failure. When... read more »
