Delivering Superior Compaction and Dust Control

Compact & Cap, the innovative road, lot and pad maintenance program controlling road dust and ensure smooth and safe surfaces.

THE program delivers superior compaction and dust control to all gravel surfaces. A proven solution to optimize compaction, integrating products that seal, stabilize and cap the road surface. This leads to overall maximized compaction.

In order for dust control products to work effectively, the road must be 85% compact. A loose road base allows dust control agents to absorb deeper into the road, resulting in a diluted product and loss of product effectiveness. This is why compaction is so important to the process. Capping the road protects the improved base. The combination of these actions produces a longer lasting smooth surface.

A Long-Term Solution to Protect the Road Base

A factor to consider is the base, which varies based on types of aggregates and local soils. Different solutions are required to meet your unique requirements.

The correct combination of road stabilization products and with the right cap along with a road maintenance program helps you to achieve your goal of creating a longer lasting road. This capping process keeps dust and gravel in and Mother Nature out. With innovative products and processes that work on nearly all prepared surfaces, the sitespecific combination is developed with the customer depending on the type of road to create a solution you can count on

Science Behind Compact & Cap

EnviroTech’s Compact & Cap program has been extensively field tested for a variety of environments and soil types, and is proven to work with heavy traffic loads and with most road base types. This program is designed to combat difficult to maintain gravel roads, pads and lots, providing a smooth stabilized surface. It has been engineered to give you longevity and decreased total cost of ownership

RoadSaver is a high purity grade of Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2) used as a dust control and road stabilization agent

RoadSaver is a hygroscopic compound that attracts moisture from the air and resists evaporation. Roadsaver binds fine dust and aggregate to keep surfaces stable and dust free.

  • Used on cities, counties and haul roads
  • Feed lots
  • Construction areas


An odorless and colorless brine solution that can be used as a cost effective dust palliative and road stabilizer

The natural hygroscopic properties of RoadSaver®-C aids in retaining moisture and significantly improve dust control and support soil stabilization. RoadSaver®-C acts as a binder that holds fine particles and aggregate together resulting in a hard compact surface. The following four factors work together to achieve optimum results:

  • Quality and Composition of Aggregate
  • Road Prep
  • Compaction
  • Application rate

Dust Control
Topical Applications work well for dust control needs. Application rates are determined by the concentration of the calcium chloride, the aggregate used, climate, and the amount of traffic. Treated roads hold fines longer and promote compaction resulting in lower maintenance. Our knowledgeable sales staff can assist you in assessing your road conditions and application needs.

Road Stabilization
For stabilization, the application methods can vary, depending on climate, road base, budgetary concerns and equipment. Our sales staff is up to date on the latest methods and will work with you to create a stabilization program. Stabilization applications can be used prior to chip seals or asphalt overlays to create a longer lasting surface.

Environmentally Friendly
Treated roads produce less dust, leading to improved public safety, lower impact on nearby crops and higher air quality for local residents. RoadSaver®-C (calcium chloride) is one of the most environmentally friendly dust control agents on the market, receiving the lowest toxicity rating among dust abatement products.



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:

  • Quality and composition of aggregate
  • Road preparation
  • Compaction
  • Application rate

Features & Benefits

  • Allows for cleaner air and reduces dust to PM10 Standard
  • Improves road quality with fewer potholes and less wash-boarding
  • Ensures public safety
  • Reduces road maintenance while creating more value for the dollar
  • Can be used on many soil types

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

“X-Hesion Pro has made our dust control measures and program more cost effective without a large change to the processes.”

-Grant Smith, Manager at Transit Mix Aggregates-Daniels Sand Division



DuraSynth is an organic synthetic product that is engineered to penetrate unpaved surfaces and effectively coat and bind fugitive dust and fi nes through cohesive mechanisms. DuraSynth effectively wets the soil creating a long term, reworkable surface that coats and weighs down the particulates without evaporating, leaching or freezing. It is an effective and environmentally friendly dust abatement system that allows for the conservation of water and other resources that would be used in applying more traditional dust control products.

Benefits & Features

  • Chloride free
  • Organic & biodrgradable
  • Stays on the road longer than traditional dust control products
  • Works in all climates
  • Reworkable, improving the quality of the road
  • Does not require water or pre-wetting
  • Reduces the consumption of energy resources
  • Binds the soil and water together
