Dust control applications can vary based on the geographic conditions of a project. Acrylates copolymer products, like Envirotac, are a great choice to help control dust and prevent soil erosion due to wind and water.
What are acrylates copolymers?
There are many different types of soil stabilization products. Acrylates copolymer is a general term for synthetic copolymers noted for their transparency, resistance to breakage, and elasticity. When applied to the soil, they increase the soil's compression strength and can strengthen road surfaces.
How do acrylates copolymers control dust?
When applied to the bare soil or unpaved road, the copolymer extends down into the soil. After water evaporates, it forms a tough surface bond with soil particles capable of resisting wind and water erosion. Acrylates copolymer soil stabilizers improve the soil's physical properties, increasing its compression strength and volume stability.
Stronger roadways for heavy traffic
Across many industries, road dust control is a major issue in construction planning. Construction managers trust long-lasting, effective dust control solutions such as acrylates copolymer products. Acrylates copolymers add strength and can turn an average unpaved road into a heavy haul road that is durable.
When applied to unpaved roads, acrylates copolymers increase the load-carrying capabilities of roads, reduce the lifecycle of maintenance costs, and extend the roadway's lifespan.
How do you apply acrylates copolymer products?
Acrylates copolymer soil stabilizers can have different application techniques based on the manufacturer. Our products, Envirotac or Earth Glue, work best when applied to adequately engineered and maintained roadways.
Basic application steps for applying Envirotac or EarthGlue
Step 1. Add water.
Step 2. Add Envirotac or Earth Glue.
Step 3. Spray Envirotac or EarthGlue/water solution to the desired area.
Measurements of the product will vary based on the parcel's size and the desired length of time for the product to last.
General precautions for using acrylates copolymers
There are standard precautions that should be taken before the application of acrylates copolymer soil stabilization products:
