Magnesium Chloride absorbs moisture from the air to maintain optimum moisture in the road particles.
This hygroscopic effect provides much more dust suppression per gallon than water.
The roadway should be freshly graded, eliminating all the potholes and washboards.
The dust control material will set your road and help to keep these problems at bay.
Before application, roads need to be watered so that the water reaches down two to three inches into the road base.
This will help draw the dust control material into the road for a better binding.
The standard application rate for liquid magnesium chloride is .5 gallons per square yard.
Application rates may vary depending upon the job and traffic usage.
