In a hot dry climate or even in the winter months, untreated roadways and industrial lots can produce airborne dust. Ultimately it can impact delivery schedules, increase downtime for operations, create unhealthy conditions, create violations/fines, and can actually produce explosive atmospheres. DustREADY™ 49 provides dust control for dirt and gravel roadways by binding the road surface particles together. Water evaporates from the product as it dries, and the high viscosity naturally sticky material traps the dust particles. In addition, after rain, DustREADY™ 49 reconstitutes and provides continued dust control once dry. DustREADY™ 49 increases the load bearing capacity of all soils and creates a hard tightly bound road that increases traction and skid resistant surfaces. This greatly reduces, or eliminates the need for grading because of wash boarding or potholes and wheel rutting.
ZEI's DustREADY™ product line has a variety of dust control products specifically developed to not only sustain low airborne dust from unpaved roads, but also to stabilize and seal the roads, while still being cost effective. This dust control line will also allow oilfield service, exploration, and industrial manufacturing companies to minimize roadway maintenance and unnecessary cost due to erosion. Be sure to take advantage of all of ZEI's DustREADY™ dust control products specifically developed to reduce costs associated with high dust levels.
"We are proud to have DustREADY™ 49 pass the CDGR Program's rigorous requirements and to have it now included on the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Approved Product list for purchase with Program funds," said Dr. Timothy Drake, ZEI's Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "This product affords the state an environmentally friendly option when dealing with dust control and provides a very economical solution for their needs."
