Magnesium Chloride

Safe For The Environment

RoadSaver is safe for use around plants and animals as well as being less harmful to road surfaces
and metals at recommended application rates. According to independent studies conducted by the US
Department of Agriculture, RoadSaver is the least harmful of common dust suppressants to vegetation
and groundwater. Non-irritating and safer to handle, RoadSaver will not cause burning or stinging
associated with alternative products. RoadSaver is free of toxic metals and substances and is used as
an ice control agent and fertilizer for crops such as turf and small grains.

Accoring to air pollution studies, nearly 34% of the particulate matter in the atmosphere originates from
fine suspended dusts particles from unpaved roads, making unpaved roads one of the major man-made
contributors of particulate emissions on a national basis.

Product Performance

Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2), Calcium Chloride (CaCl2), and Lignosulfonates are the dominant dust
control and road stabilization agents used in North America. Environmental factors such as temperature,
humidity level, precipitation, and especially soil/aggregate type/gradation, play key roles in determining
the success or failure of one agent versus another:

For example, The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC), in its Guidelines for Cost-Effective Use
and Application of Dust Palliatives suggests that “calcium chloride loses its hygroscopicity (ability to absorb
moisture from the air) as relative humidity decreases. Calcium chloride should be used with caution if long
dry spells are anticipated or low humidity exists.” They found that “magnesium chloride, while also hygroscopic, remains so at much higher temperatures and lower relative humidity than calcium chloride and therefore may be more suitable to dry climates.” They also state that magnesium chloride is “less corrosive than calcium chloride.”

According to a Colorado State University Study on the “Relative Effectiveness of Road Dust Suppressants”, magnesium chloride outperformed calcium chloride and performed very well in terms of aggregate retention. There was an estimated total aggregate loss of 1.0 ton / mile / year / vehicle from the RoadSaver treated test section, 1.5 tons / mile / year / vehicle from the calcium chloride treated test  section and 2.6 tons / mile / year / vehicle from the untreated test section. This translates into a 59% reduction in total aggregate loss when unpaved roads were treated with RoadSaverTM.

Reactiv8 – Recycled Asphalt Pavement

If you have a long driveway or parking area at your business or home that needs paving or repaving but you don’t want to break the bank, we have the perfect solution. Over the past 8 years Perth Dust Control, a privately owned business located in Southwestern Ontario, has developed a unique method of Reactivating 100% recycled asphalt with a unique product and process designed to produce quality asphalt pavement for those long driveways and commercial yards that not only create dust problems all summer but are also somewhat unattractive and require year-round maintenance. The cost of this innovative product and process, including all materials and installation, typically range around 25% of the cost of conventional asphalt pavement, and the results are identical. This product and process is ideal for paving gravel areas and also repaving deteriorated previously paved areas. This product is ideal for anywhere asphalt pavement is an option.  Perth Dust Control has completed many projects across Ontario using this technique and would be pleased to arrange a tour of the various projects for your review…….. seeing is believing!!! Please contact us if you would like to arrange a tour or get a free estimate for your specific project.
