What are the prices?
As the manufacturer of the Envirotac line of polymers, we offer factory direct prices. Envirotac is priced per gallon/liter.
Do you have discounts?
Discounts are based on volume. Substantial discounts are available with full truckloads (4,400 gallons +).
What are the payment terms?
We accept cash, checks, Visa, Master Card, American Express, and all Government Procurement Cards.
What about follow up applications after the initial application?
Once performance has reached the limits of its longevity, a follow-up application is necessary to restore and rejuvenate its optimal performance. Reapplying Envirotac to a previously treated area requires usually only 20% of the original application amount to achieve the same results.
Can it be diluted with salt water?
Envirotac can be diluted in salt water (max 4% salt).
What happens with rain and precipitation?
Envirotac does not dissipate (wash away) with rain. Heavier concentrations, will actually waterproof the treated surface.
What about decreased application rates/mixtures?
Decreasing the application rate (increased coverage) will result in reduced strength, longevity and performance.
How do I clean application equipment after applying it on surfaces?
Envirotac is water-soluble. Application equipment should simply be rinsed out after use. Cured Envirotac needs to soaked with a degreasing agent and high pressure washed.
How can I use Envirotac for hydro-seeding?
A hydroseeder is recommended to mix and apply seed, mulch and Envirotac together. Envirotac will work as a super strength tackifier. It will also expedite the germination process of seed.
What about Enzymes?
With Enzymes you need a certain percentage of clays in order for it to be effective. The application cost is high. When it cures you generally need to apply another product to the surface as there will still be top dust.
What about Asphalt Emulsions?
Petroleum resin emulsions leach away with precipitation, are harmful to vegetation and ground water, become slippery when wet, are difficult to clean from application equipment and track onto vehicles.
Can you provide a list of examples where Envirotac has successfully been used to deal with road stabilization and dust control needs?
The United States Marine Corps, through the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center, conducted an extensive scientific bench scale and field evaluation of dust suppression products; these products must be capable of reducing PM 10 (particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than 10 microns) to levels in compliance with the Clean Air Act. The dust suppression products were evaluated in terms of material and labor costs, and equipment requirements for the Air Combat Center located at Twentynine Palms, CA. Extensive military activities are conducted on unpaved roads at the Air Combat Center. Envirotac was ranked as THE TOP-PERFORMING PRODUCT in terms of bench and field-testing, economic and toxicity analysis. In addition, we can provide specific references depending upon the use.
Is Envirotac cost effective to use?
Government studies have concluded that Envirotac is the most cost effective dust suppression product, cumulative over time, when compared to traditional products, such as asphalt cement stabilization, chlorides and water. We can provide a detailed list of road commissioners and superintendents from around the country that have successfully used Envirotac as a dust control agent in place of other products.
What about Magnesium Chlorides?
Magnesium Chlorides while very cheap in initial cost are back loaded with expenses. Mag Chlorides are corrosive to metal so it puts equipment and vehicles at risk. The surface becomes slippery when wet. It also leaches away with precipitation so the need to re-apply is much greater. Also it is harmful to groundwater and vegetation.
What about Organic Resin Emulsions such as Treesap and Tall Oil Pitch?
Organic Resin Emulsions are not easy to apply. They offer low tensile strength and do not create a great bond between the soil particles. They also can become tacky and stick to tires and vehicles.
What about Lignin Sulfonates?
Lignin Sulfonates are corrosive to aluminum. They leach away with precipitation and are harmful to ground water. The area that has been applied can become slippery when wet as well.
Are you aware of other studies where different types of soil stabilization and dust control products have been compared or studied?
Dust suppressions studies have consistently established Envirotac as the most effective product in terms of cost, ease of application, environmental safety and durability. This is further documented by our CBR and UCS reports.
Do you have information/videos on effectiveness, application techniques, cost and longevity of use for Envirotac?
Tests have confirmed Envirotac to be the most cost effective and durable dust suppression product available on the market; please call or email for videos ad application instructions.
