There are some additives that could be acceptable as dust suppressants, but they are inadequate in extending the longevity of the road bed. One of the key factors in the selection of an additive as a road bed stabilizer is whether it can improve the shear strength of the bed forming soil.
While the shear strength is influenced by several compositional and environmental factors related to the soil, internal friction and cohesive forces between the particles play a critical role. The stability of the road bed is also dependent upon the thickness of the treated soil layer, which in turn increases its overall shear strength.
Carefully designed amendments Dust Master™ and Dust Check™ stabilize the road bed and substantially reduce the vehicular dust emission. Applications also minimize periodical road maintenance and watering costs. Road bed composition and climate will determine which product will give you the best results.
