Dust Control Products

EnviroKleen®

Advanced Environmental Dust Control Solution

Created in our laboratory, EnviroKleen® was the first Synthetic Organic Dust Control® product on the market. Unique in the industry, this product has a binder system that captures fines and keeps them locked into the surface, preventing fugitive dust from escaping.

EnviroKleen’s synthetic fluid and polymeric binder interlocks and durably binds surface aggregate and fines together through both cohesive and adhesive mechanisms. As fines are generated, they are captured, preventing them from escaping as dust.

EK35®

The Most Natural, Effective Way to Prevent Fugitive Dust and Gravel Loss on Roads, Runways and Pads

Dust degrades your unpaved road, runway or pad surface, while presenting a health hazard to people and the environment. Traditional dust control measures only make things worse: watering only hastens the destruction of your road surface while increasing your maintenance costs. And chlorides and oil-based products are temporary and can be harmful to the environment.

But with Midwest’s EK35, there is another option: one that will get the job done, with tangible results that you can measure. All while being completely safe for the environment.

Soil Sement®

Proven Dust Control and Erosion Control Solutions

Midwest’s Soil-Sement® family of polymer emulsions for dust control, erosion control and soil stabilization boasts more certifications and verifications for environmental safety and performance effectiveness than any other polymer emulsion.

View Product

Earth Armour®

As gentle on the environment as it is tough on dust and unstable surfaces

Earth Armour® quickly penetrates dust and remains actively effective on clay, sand, gravel, limestone and most native soils regardless of the weather or how severe the traffic. As fines are generated, they are captured, preventing them from escaping as dust. Earth Armour is cost-effective for controlling PM10 and PM2.5 from open fugitive dust sources, and unlike other available products, it will not track onto public roadways or stick to vehicles. It provides longer-lasting performance and requires fewer applications than other dust control and surface stabilization methods – regardless of season.

Road Pro® NT

Creates stronger roads with greater elasticity and durability than traditional asphalt emulsions

Road Pro® NT is a polymer-modified asphalt emulsion that stands up to the sun, wind, weather and traffic-loading better than a typical asphalt emulsion over both the short and long term. It is the perfect alternative to an ordinary asphalt emulsion that will not only improve road performance, but reduce your life cycle costs in the process.

BioSoyl Plus®

Resin Binder Dust Suppressant

BioSoyl Plus® combines penetrating bio-based properties with strong binding action for dust-free unpaved roads. Formulated with renewable resources enhanced to control dust, BioSoyl Plus penetrates below the road surfact to bond with roadbed materials while the resin binder consolidates surface aggregate, locks it in place and enhances compaction at the surface. BioSoyl Plus-treated roads stand up to heavy traffic on landfill, military, construction and community roads.

MineKleen® Plus

Harmful underground dust is finally defeated (even on backs and ribs!).

Midwest’s proprietary, advanced MineKleen® formulations are specific to underground use, carefully crafted to dramatically reduce dust and inhibit the growth of mold. MineKleen® Plus is the optimal recommendation, due to an exclusive binder system to improve service life and reduce applications by as much as half compared to our original, Basic formulation. This stabilization advantage is possible because it delivers both an adhesive (a force of attraction between different kinds of molecules) and a cohesive (with the same types of molecules) dust-binding mechanism.

MineKleen® Basic

Harmful underground dust is finally defeated (even on backs and ribs!).

Midwest’s proprietary, advanced MineKleen® formulations (Basic and Plus) are specific to underground use, carefully crafted to dramatically reduce dust and inhibit the growth of mold. While MineKleen® Basic does not feature the binder system, it represents an economical alternative for those who want to see for themselves the effectiveness of using the MineKleen® system at a more limited initial investment. Both MineKleen® formulations are environmentally safe and ready to spray.

Intresoil®

STABILIZES CLAY-BASED ROADS BY FIGHTING MOISTURE

Long-term stabilization is possible, even while reducing construction time, materials and maintenance the natural way.

Moisture is the enemy. It weakens and breaks apart clay and silt road foundations. Midwest NaturalPave Intresoil® is the antidote. It increases bearing and shear strength, stabilizing the problematic material (which means the thickness of the treated layer or overlying pavement layers can be reduced). Best yet, Intresoil is a permanent treatment that will not leach out.

Dust Buster® Foam Agents

Material Handling Foam Dust Suppressants

Midwest’s Dust-Buster® family of foam dust suppressants are highly efficient because they are injected directly at transfer, process point, stack-out, or reclaim areas, where they smother, capture and collect airborne dust.

View Product

Dustract® Wet Suppression System

Material Handling Wet Dust Suppression System

The Dustract® Wet Suppression System is a well-proven method of dust suppression achieved by using a combination of Midwest-developed atomizing spray technology and our Dustract additive injected into the pumped-water stream at multiple points in the material-handling process.

So-Long® Residual Dust Control

Dust Suppression From A Single Application Point

So-Long is a polymer based emulsion, in an easy to apply liquid form, which provides both short and long term dust suppression. It is used where PM10 and TSP must be suppressed at the source and maintained for downstream effectiveness as bulk materials such as coal, coke, limestone, sand, cement clinker, railroad ballast and sinter are loaded, unloaded, stockpiled and reclaimed.

View Product

SoKleen® Residual Dust Control

Stop the Effects of Silica Sand Dust Particles

SoKleen synthetic organic residual dust control agent stops the harmful effects of inhaled airborne dust that occur when silica sand and other materials are transported on belts or dumped from trucks or transfer points. A single ounce of SoKleen eliminates dust from 50 pounds of sand. It remains active not only on sand but also on clay, gravel, limestone, mixed aggregates and most native soils, regardless of the weather. It prevents the creation of additional harmful dust, and is ideal for indoor or outdoor applications.

CCT Coal Car Topper®

Dust Control for In-Transit Car Topping

Midwest’s CCT Coal Car Topper® has proven to be the most reliable and consistent dust-control car topper for coal in transport. It is one of fewer than a handful of approved BNSF vendors.

CCT Coal Car Topper® — part of the Soil-Sement family of polymer emulsions — penetrates into and seals coal surface to prevent coal dust from escaping from in-transit coal trains.

Newtrol

An effective more environmentally sound dust control alternative to chlorides

Newtrol is a high-performance, glycerin-based dust suppressant with humectant and binding characteristics that make it effective for long-term dust suppression at a very attractive price. Formulated with renewable resources enhanced to maintain long-term dust suppression, Newtrol agglomerates loose particles and holds moisture on the surface thereby reducing dust on roads and open areas. Newtrol-treated roads stand up to heavy traffic and reduce the need for frequent road repairs. Newtrol is ideal for sensitive environments and is a clean alternative to chlorides.

GIVES ACCESS TO NATURE FOR ALL, ON NATURE’S TERMS

Midwest NaturalPave ResinPave® offers environmentally safe alternatives to harmful materials such as asphalt (which contains coal tar pitch), gravel (which can be overrun by weeds and often fails to provide stable footing, especially for those with limited mobility) and concrete (causes damage to the topsoil and contributes to surface runoff and erosion).

SF2

A Non-Traditional Stabilization System for Township Roads, Remote Access Roads and Pads

Traditional approaches to building and stabilizing unpaved remote access roads and pads can be temorary and costly because gravel sources are scarce, making local readily available silts, sands and low plasticity fine-grained soils the perfered constuction material.

That’s why Midwest developed SF2®.
