RoadSaver Magnesium Chloride Dust Control and Road Stabilization

RoadSaver is a high purity grade of magnesium chloride (MgCl2) used as a dust control, road stabilization, and soil stabilization agent. Magnesium chloride is a hygroscopic compound that attracts moisture from the air and resists evaporation. RoadSaver from Desert Mountain Corporation binds fine dust and aggregate to keep surfaces stable and dust-free.

Achieving Optimum Results

Road surface preparation is extremely important in all RoadSaver applications. The better the road preparation and conditions, the more successful the application will be. The following five factors work together to achieve optimum results:

  • Quality and composition of aggregate
  • Moisture
  • Compaction
  • Road preparation
  • Application rate

RoadSaver Performance

RoadSaver, our magnesium chloride product, provides excellent performance depending on the environmental challenge being faced. Such factors as temperature, humidity level, precipitation, and especially soil / aggregate type / gradation will impact the success or failure of one product versus another.

The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC), in its Guidelines for Cost-Effective Use and Application of Dust Palliatives found that “magnesium chloride, while also hygroscopic, remains so at much higher temperatures and lower relative humidity than calcium chloride and therefore may be more suitable to dry climates.” 

Mag Typical Analysis

Health, Toxicity & Environmental

RoadSaver (magnesium chloride) is the least harmful of common dust suppressants to vegetation and groundwater according to independent studies conducted by the US Department of Agriculture. It is non-irritating and safer to handle and won’t cause burning or stinging associated with some of the other dust control products. RoadSaver is free of toxic metals and substances, is used as an ice control agent, and also as a fertilizer for crops such as turf and small grains.


Road Preparation for RoadSaver

By properly preparing the road for application, dust control or soil stabilization projects could last 2 to 3 times longer. Spending a little additional time and effort on the front end will eliminate unnecessary re-applications that would be required otherwise. Recommended techniques include blading the surface, eliminating potholes and washboarding, placing the right crown in the roadway, and pre-wetting the application area.

"When RoadSaver is applied regularly as a part of an ongoing dust control program, application rates can decrease. Continual use will help reduce road base loss."
