Road Dust Control
LIQUIDOW™ Calcium Chloride is very effective for dust control. Calcium chloride is hygroscopic, which means it attracts moisture from the air and surroundings. Therefore, calcium chloride assists in keeping surfaces damp and dust down. Calcium chloride also resists evaporation, which means a single application will last a long time. Tests have proven that 38% LIQUIDOW™ Calcium Chloride out performs other dust control products.
Calcium chloride also assists in stabilizing a road surface, which helps to reduce frost damage and overall wear. The combination of liquid calcium chloride's strong moisture film, high surface tension and low vapor pressure, along with calcium chloride's thirst for moisture causes aggregate particles to bind together. This leads to unpaved surfaces being more compact creating better road stabilization.

"If your County Highway Department wants to suppress the dust and create a stable road base, in my opinion, LIQUIDOW™ Calcium Chloride is the product to use. We have been using this product with success for over 10 years. It is also our product of choice to aid in fighting snow and ice. We use Calcium Chloride for dust control on our gravel roads, where we can maintain roads with underbody blades or graders, and the calcium is still present. We use calcium chloride when we reclaim existing chip and seal roads, to stabilize the base. During the winter months we apply calcium chloride at the spinner to enhance the melting process of our salt on snow and ice."
