What’s going on at Soilworks
Unpaved roads and parking lots create dust pollution generated from wind and vehicular traffic. Residents that live near these unpaved roads are burdened by dust that settles in their homes and affects air quality.
In addition to complications arising from unsettled dust, unpaved roads and parking lots deteriorate due to damage from passenger vehicles, severe weather and construction equipment. Over time, the deterioration of unpaved roads can cause safety hazards such as potholes and shoulder drop-offs that can harm both drivers and the environment.
In order to create safe, durable and dust-free roads, Soilworks created Soiltac, a revolutionary copolymer product that serves to control dust and erosion and stabilize soil.
The Science Behind Soiltac
Soiltac is an innovative product that is designed for today’s most challenging soil stabilization and dust control needs. This revolutionary product is completely eco-safe, biodegradable, water resistant, ultraviolet-ray resistant, non-flammable and safe for humans, animals, vegetation and marine life.
When Soiltac is applied to a surface, the copolymer molecules join to form a bond between the soil or aggregate particles. After application, Soiltac creates a flexible-yet-solid mass that is durable and water-resistant. Once Soiltac has cured, the copolymer product becomes completely transparent and leaves the landscape seemingly untouched.
Depending on the needs of the project, application rates of Soiltac can be adjusted to provide quality performance from months to years.
Modest application rates: Useful for dust suppression and erosion control on roads by creating a three-dimensional cap or surface crust.
Heavy application rates: Useful for soil solidification that is similar to cement for building roads with anticipated heavy traffic.
Soiltac and Road Maintenance
All around the world, people rely on paved and unpaved roads to carry out their day-to-day tasks. Soilworks’ proven dust control and soil stabilization products show time and time again how effective dust control management can support transportation needs.
Road maintenance is not only critical to the economy, but to the safety of drivers and the environment. When driving on an unpaved road without dust control treatment, unsettled dust travels through the air and affects local crops, livestock and air quality.
With the assistance of Soiltac, Soilworks can help minimize road maintenance and maximize budgets while addressing dust-related concerns.
