What’s going on at Soilworks
In many regions, the availability of water is dwindling. About 14.6 percent of the contiguous United States currently falls within the moderate to exceptional drought categories, according to the U.S. Drought Portal. Areas of extreme drought, such as Southern California, require dust control solutions that will help save on water without harming the environment.
The True Cost of Water
On the surface, water might seem like the perfect solution to your dust control needs, but when you consider all of the expenses involved with using water to control dust, you’ll begin to see how costly it can be. For example, water will quickly evaporate in hot, dusty climates, causing application rates to increase as well as the labor costs to do so. Water can also create mud, rutting and trackouts, leading to unstable roads and even more dust.
Industries around the world are making the switch to Soilworks solutions as long-lasting dust control alternatives. Not only do our products help save on water, they are environmentally friendly, extremely durable and last from weeks to years depending on your project needs.
Soilworks Has a Solution
Our leading synthetic dust control fluid, Durasoil, is biodegradable and requires no water dilution for applications. Upon application, Durasoil coats, wets and agglomerates fine soil particles together, resulting in a re-workable, dust-free layer of soil that is non-slippery and engineered to withstand the most extreme environmental conditions from -40 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Even under heavy traffic loads and intense-use conditions, Durasoil’s unique, self-healing properties remain effective from months to years.
