Compact & Cap™

ESI’s proprietary program that combines product mix and application method for optimal performance and value

Whether managing roads, a construction site, a drilling pad, or another project requiring dust control, you know that your greatest challenge is balancing your particular mix of conditions and resources. EnviroTech has been accounting for the specific details of a site’s environment since our inception, and have also become experts in helping our customers manage their limitations in equipment and resources. This expertise has come together with a nuanced application of our proprietary products to form our trademarked Compact & Cap program.

Compact & Cap combines a customized mixture of ESI’s proprietary products with an application method tailored to the equipment, resources, and environment for the job at hand. The comprehensive approach of Compact & Cap means that a site gets improved stabilization, along with the suppression of dust. Download the FAQ below to learn more about what goes into the program, at a high level. Because the site or project each manager has to work with requires such a customized approach, the best way to get a more detailed understanding of Compact & Cap is to contact us. We look forward to working with you to reach your best possible results.

PRODUCT RESOURCES

durablend™

A full chloride product most prominent for dust control and road stabilization in North America

durablend achieves the same performance as a typical magnesium chloride treatment, but can require half the amount of product per application. durablend’s enhanced polymer blend helps it bond to the aggregate, lowering migration of chloride from the road to improve friction in moisture situations and provide for safer driving surfaces.

With more scrutiny coming from local municipalities and concerns of neighbors makes products that reduce chlorides advantageous in managing these relationships.

Road preparation for durablend application is the same as for a typical chloride product, including rolling after grading is finished. This process provides for optimal surface penetration of durablend into the top half inch of the road and improves fleet efficiency. When a pad or site is being set up, the application of durablend can greatly ease dust management, once operations begin.

durablend is applied to roads using the standard spray system, but can cover twice as much area per truck load than full chloride products. It does not require blade mixing to extend performance. Continual use reduces road base loss and improves the efficiency of the fleet, reducing man hours.

durablend-C™

Effective for road maintenance as well as mining, oil & gas

durablend-C achieves the same performance as a typical chloride treatment, but can require half the amount of product per application. durablend-C’s enhanced polymer blend helps it bond to the  aggregate, lowering migration of chloride from the road to improve friction in moisture situations and provide for safer driving surfaces.

Road preparation for durablend-C application is the same as for a typical chloride product, including rolling after grading is finished. This process provides for optimal surface penetration of durablend-C into the top half inch of the road and improves fleet efficiency.

X-Hesion Pro™

Ultra-low chloride based formulations utilizing agriculturally derived, complex organic polymer

These polymers function to keep the surfaces of several types of road base stable and dust free while maintaining a road surface that is flexible and water resistant. X-Hesion Pro is an ultra-low chloride based dust control product that helps to limit the amount of chlorides introduced into the environment versus traditional dust palliatives. The enhanced X-Hesion Pro formulation is both more effective at drawing/retaining moisture and is more weather resistant. The result is a stronger fine particle – aggregate matrix that reduces dust to a PM10 standard and yields a road surface that is compact, water resistant and durable.

Road surface preparation is extremely important in all application techniques. However, these preparations do not need to be time consuming or costly. The better the road conditions, the more successful the application will be.

The following four factors work together to achieve optimum results:

  1. Quality and Composition of Aggregate
  2. Road Preparation
  3. Compaction
  4. Application

X-Hesion Pro can be used on the following surfaces:

  • Unpaved state, county and township roads
  • Quarries/mine/haul roads
  • Orchards/agricultural roads
  • Federal/state parks
  • Military roads /federal projects
  • Private and rural roads
  • Parking lots
  • Tree/flower/shrub nurseries
  • Airfields and helicopter pads
  • Feedlots
