Application Equipment for Dust Control Using Earthbind®100

Often, customers ask if they can apply our product themselves for topical dust control. Many times the customer already has or has access to the proper equipment. However, there are common cases where they do not. The following is a brief overview of the recommended application equipment for the application of Earthbind® 100 for topical dust control. Earthbind®100 is considered... read more »

Earthbind®, the Water Resistant Alternative for Dust Control

Dust palliatives are used to control fugitive dust originating from unpaved surfaces. There are dozens of types and brands of dust palliatives. The most common types range from plain water, surfactants, chlorides, synthetic polymers, vegetable oils (soybean oil, sugar beet oil), bentonite clays, lignosulfonates, paraffinic (mineral) oils, petroleum resins, engineered modified asphalt emulsions (Earthbind®), etc. Most dust control palliatives claim... read more »

Earthbind®, the Environmentally-Friendly Alternative to Chlorides for Dust Control

Magnesium and calcium chloride are commonly used as a dust suppressant agent on unpaved roads in the western parts of the United States during the spring and summer. Likewise, chlorides are used extensively for deicing/anti-icing on paved roads during the winter. Chlorides are often used as a dust control agent since they are hygroscopic and deliquescent -- the ability to... read more »

Earthbind® Prime Coat Is an Effective Alternative to Asphalt Products that Contain VOC’s

Stabilizing an unpaved roadbed is important both in maintaining strength and stability, while also reducing fugitive dust problems. In the past, many road construction and road maintenance operations relied on the use of traditional asphalt products that contained volatile organic compounds. These products may no longer be allowed due to environmental concerns. Unfortunately, applying products that contain VOC's to an... read more »

Magnesium Chloride Can Control Dust More Effectively Than a Water Truck

Unpaved roads are commonly seen in rural areas, remote locations, construction sites, and mining operations throughout the Pacific Northwest. These roadbeds often consist of various gravels, local rocks, sand, and small soil particles. When vehicles and equipment are moved across these unpaved roadbeds in dry conditions it can create a significant amount of dust. This can obscure vision, cause respiratory... read more »

Calcium Chloride Can Help Control Dust on Unpaved Roads

Unpaved roads are often an amalgam of gravels, aggregate materials, native rocks, sand, and small soil particles. Changes in weather, dry spells, and long-term drought can cause some of the smaller particles in the unpaved road to disassociate from the roadbed. A vehicle driving down the road, or a strong wind can turn fugitive dust particles into the air. The... read more »

Earthbind® 100 Can Help Control Dust on Winter Roads

While wintertime is often thought of as a time of sleet, snow, and rain, it can also bring excessively dry conditions to certain parts of the country. This can have a dramatic effect on unpaved roads, causing fugitive dust particles to enter the air, leading to health and safety problems. In the past, chloride-based dust control agents were used to... read more »

Earthbind® 100 Can Be Far More Efficient for Dust Control than a Water Truck

In the early years of road construction and road maintenance, spraying water and other improvised agents on a roadbed was seen as a standard practice for controlling fugitive dust particles. In extremely dry locations or during a prolonged drought, this could mean daily if not multiple trips each day for a water truck. This can tie up the necessary equipment... read more »
