Road Stabilization

Dirt Road Stabilization

road stabilization

QuestionsRoad stabilization is crucial for the health and safety of rural communities. When a dirt road is properly prepared and utilizes the right products to ensure its stability, residents can breathe easier knowing that travel on the roads will be safer. An added benefit of road stabilization is that it will also be healthier for those around it as less fugitive dust will be produced from the traffic. When major routes thorough a county are on dirt roads, they have to be tended frequently – unless they have been treated. Grading, blading and watering are all drastically reduced when eco-friendly road stabilization products are applied. Areas that benefit from road stabilization are:

  • bus routes
  • parking lots
  • main thoroughfares
  • campsite access roads

These important transportation routes should be kept in the best condition for safe travel and to prevent wear and tear to school buses, resident and county vehicles. Investing in a treatment of organic, inorganic, polymer, co-polymer or custom blended products will extend the life of road equipment and free up manpower to be used elsewhere.

Dust Control Products

Our most economical product, RoadSaver is a high-grade magnesium chloride product that performs well in most soil types. Magnesium chloride is a hygroscopic compound that attracts moisture from the air and resists evaporation. RoadSaver binds fine dust and aggregates to keep surfaces stable and dust free.

durablend Idaho dust controldurablend™ is an enhanced product that contains the highly effective combination of mag-chloride. One of the GREEN products that Desert Mountain offers, it contains fewer chlorides than other dust control products. It’s designed for environmentally sensitive areas like metro areas, subdivisions, laydown yards, staging areas, parking lots, stockpiles, mass graded areas, etc. This innovative new product is blended with a performance enhancing polymer to keep surfaces stable and dust free while using only half the chloride of standard dust control products. durablend™ bonds with the soil to reduce leeching, even after rainfalls, lowering the impact
on the surrounding environment and vegetation. Plus, its lower application rate means a smaller delivery volume, further reducing its carbon footprint.

Road Loc Road Loc Logo
One of our best binders, Road Loc is an all-natural organic polymer designed for road stabilization. Road Loc is an environmentally friendly product derived from the tree pulp industry. Road Loc works by binding together fine particles found in aggregate and natural soils preventing them from breaking out and forming fugitive dust. Road Loc adheres these particles together with larger aggregate and natural soils preventing movement which aids in stabilization and helps prevent washboards and potholes. We offer several proprietary blends with Road Loc being the primary additive. They include DP-50, DMC-820, DMC-550, and DMC-730.

Mixed-in with aggregates or recycled asphalt or applied topically, BaseBind will stabilize roads and parking lots with long lasting results. It is ultra low chloride and more weather resistant, than other dust control solutions. BaseBind is the best choice when superior base stabilization and a longer aggregate life are the goals.

Surface-Loc surface loc logo
