Application Tips

  • Road should have a good crown in the driving surface.
  • Road should have good shoulder drainage – standing water anywhere in the roadway will cause the surface to soften and fail.
  • Loosen a minimum of one to two inches of the existing surface and leave it loose at a uniform depth across the roadway. This allows the liquid dust control to penetrate evenly and quickly into the gravel.
  • Gravel itself must have a good gradation.
  • Gravel should have a good percentage of fine material with some plasticity, giving it a natural binding characteristic.
  • If good gravel is not present on the road, fresh gravel should be hauled in prior to a road dust control treatment.
  • Do not compact the surface at all prior to applying a dust suppressant
