    MERILLVILLE, Ind., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- MonoSol LLC, the world leader
 in developing and commercializing specialty water-soluble polymer-based films,
 introduces TerraLOC(TM), a family of dust palliative and dust abatement
 products.  Ideal for a variety of military and civilian applications, TerraLOC
 can be applied to unpaved roads, mines, airfields, helipads and other
 locations to reduce airborne dust and improve worker safety.
     MonoSol developed its patent-pending PVOH-based TerraLOC family of dust
 abatement products using nanotechnology that enhances the physical
 characteristics of the water-soluble compound.  This cost-effective, high
 performance dust control product is biodegradable and environmentally
     TerraLOC is easy to apply and quick to cure.  A wide variety of hand-held
 sprayers, agricultural sprayers, helicopter sprayers and other types of
 sprayers can be used without modification to apply TerraLOC.  Spraying
 equipment is easily cleaned with hot or cold water -- no solvents are needed.
     Once cured, TerraLOC stabilizes soil and abates dust, working as an
 anchoring agent for soil, sand, vegetation and loose leaves.  Acting like a
 net, TerraLOC impregnates the unbound or un-compacted material that overlays
 the sub-grade.
     "Since 1953, MonoSol has been an industry leader, tirelessly introducing
 innovative products that customers can rely on.  With the introduction of
 TerraLOC, we're using our expertise to solve mission critical problems," noted
 Christian Rath, Director of Global Business Development at MonoSol.  "We are
 now negotiating supply agreements for TerraLOC in a number of major civilian
 and military industries, looking to establish long term relationships."
     In the mining and construction industries, TerraLOC helps stabilize soil
 and reduce airborne dust, which leads to improved worker safety and reduced
 exposure to injury-related lawsuits.  Companies striving to comply with the
 Environmental Protection Agency's clean air act are especially interested in
 this new solution.
     In the military industry, TerraLOC improves the safety of troops and
 enhances vehicle performance by minimizing brown-out conditions that have
 proven problematic at airfields, helipads and other locations.  MonoSol's
 Vender Business Agreement with VSE Corporation, a prime contractor for the
 CECOM Rapid Response (R2) Program, allows MonoSol to quickly supply U.S.
 federal agencies.
