Controlling Dust

Open land with dirt road

Extending the life of unpaved roads while improving health and safety, and protecting our natural environment 

Dust produced by traffic on unpaved roads is an unpleasant nuisance, affecting the quality of life for everyone who uses those roads and those who live or work nearby. But dust is more than a nuisance. It is a warning sign of costly road damage, and it can be a serious threat to your family’s health and driving safety, your vehicle and other property, and the natural environment around you. Liquid and solid calcium chloride products from OxyChem effectively suppress dust when applied as part of normal seasonal road maintenance programs. These same products can also provide dust control when used as agents for road base stabilization and for full-depth reclamation as part of road building or rebuilding projects.
