Improved Roads

Road experts will tell you, a dusty road is a deteriorating road. Dust is comprised of fine particles which, when they turn to dust, no longer serve as binding agents that hold road surfaces together. This leaves the load-bearing aggregate exposed, unstable and vulnerable—subject to degradation and loss with every passing vehicle, or to washout with every hard rain. Ruts, potholes and washboards form. The need for spot repairs increases. Blading with grading equipment must be performed more frequently. And, ultimately, the aggregate must be replaced. Calcium chloride is an effective, long-lasting dust suppressant that attracts moisture from the air and binds fine particles and coarse aggregate together to create and maintain a hard, packed and durable road surface for safer more comfortable travel.
