Differentiating between dust suppressants and soil stabilizers lies in the product technology and the needs of your project.
Dust suppressants, such as Soilworks’ patented and biodegradable Durasoil, are engineered to weigh down particulates with a wetting action similar to water. The unique, re-workable properties of Durasoil set it apart from the competition as the world’s only non-petroleum synthetic fluid providing long-lasting dust control without evaporating, freezing or harming the soil.
Durasoil’s revolutionary non-petroleum, synthetic fluid properties control dust in the most extreme and intense-use situations. The ultra-pure fluid with gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology is made from clean natural gas and is distinctively crystal clear, odorless and formulated to meet the highest standards of environmental efficacy.
This makes our product perfect for projects requiring a durable dust control solution that is completely transparent, eco-friendly and non-corrosive to equipment.
Soil stabilizers like Soiltac are unique from regular dust suppressants in that they create a three-dimensional cap or surface crust, perfect for projects that need to increase load bearing capacity or prevent soil erosion.
When Soiltac is applied to soil, the copolymer molecules coalesce and form bonds between the soil or aggregate particles. Long molecular structures link and cross-link together, forming a flexible solid-mass that is durable and water-resistant.
Heavier application rates of Soiltac can create qualities similar to cement, useful for soil solidification and stabilization found in road building. By adjusting application rates, Soiltac can remain effective from weeks to years.
