Unpaved aggregate roadbeds can develop subtle changes related to weather, season and frequency of use. Frequent rain events promote roadbed erosion. On the other end of the spectrum, dry conditions can allow dust particulate to become airborne, creating threats to vehicular safety and respiratory health.
Blue Line Transportation Co. offers base stabilization products like Earthbind® Stabilizer and Earthbind® Prime Coat for ecological and economical alternatives to chemical stabilizers.
Earthbind® Stabilizer was specifically formulated to be safely stored and easily applied. In concentrated form, it takes up to 20% less space than other dust-control agents. Since it is non-corrosive, you will save money in regular maintenance of storage tanks as well as application equipment and vehicles. In the long-term, a residual amount of Earthbind® Stabilizer will remain in the roadbed. Subsequent applications will thus require a smaller volume be used, and at greater intervals.
Earthbind® Prime Coat is an ecologically friendly biopolymer and surfactant, making it a superior alternative to volatile organic compounds.
Earthbind® Prime Coat penetrates the roadbed and binds loose soil and aggregate particles into a matrix. Earthbind® Prime Coat is also water resistant once cured on the road, so the matrix is very slow to erode and will not dissolve as a result of rain.
