A revolutionary patented, state-of-the-art synthetic dust suppression fluid; engineered for today's most challenging intense-use dust control needs. This ultra-pure non-petroleum based fluid with GTL technology is made from clean, plentiful natural gas and is distinctively crystal clear, odorless and formulated to meet the highest standards of environmental efficacy.
How It Works
The Problem of Untreated Dust
Long-Term Wetting Action
Durasoil’s revolutionary non-petroleum, synthetic fluid properties control dust in the most extreme and intense-use situations by “wetting out” any soil or aggregate to create a long-term, re-workable solution that coats and agglomerates particulates, weighing them down, like water, without evaporating or freezing.
Durasoil in Action
Not only does Durasoil look, feel and smell pure, its purity keeps our environment, our ecosystems and most importantly, each of us, safe. Supported by hundreds of third party independent tests, Durasoil patented, non-petroleum, based formulation with GTL technology, has risen to the top of the dust suppression industry for its environmental efficacy. From the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Durasoil’s continuous validations are extensive and thorough.

Soilworks' Durasoil GTL in Action - Brion Energy
See Soilworks in action! Durasoil synthetic dust suppression fluid keeps dust down on heavy traffic haul roads at Brion Energy in Alberta, Canada. The gas-to-liquid (GTL) solution coats and agglomerates particulates, weighing them down like water so vehicles traveling on unpaved roads do not generate dust. Durasoil’s long-term wetting properties last from months to years depending on project needs.
Durasoil on Underground Mining Roads
Durasoil, a patented, ultra-pure, synthetic fluid formula by Soilworks, is a highly effective, BNQ certified solution for dust control in several industries including mining operations. Unwanted particles and fugitive dust are secured on mine entrances, tunnel walls and underground haul roads by applying Durasoil onsite, seen here at the Maroelabult and Zandfontein Mines in South Africa.
You can see the clear difference between the Durasoil treated road that is richer in color and controlling the dust versus the dry and lighter colored shoulder area.
This heavy haul military convoy road is being applied with Durasoil through the use of a standard water truck.
This military convoy and tank trail road is being treated with Durasoil using a rate controlled spray system similar to the ones used for sealing asphalt roads.
This Durasoil treated unpaved decomposed granite road is 22 miles leading to the observation deck at the Grand Canyon which receives extreme volumes of tourist traffic on a daily basis and remained dust free
The unique properties of Durasoil allow it to be applied over any traffic area without preparation including compaction or grading and remains effective even while being reworked or disturbed due to its self-healing properties.
Notice the dust outside of the 150 foot diameter Durasoil treated landing zone for this CH-46 Sea Knight Helicopter but no dust below the helicopter providing pilots with a clear and safe line of sight to the ground to avoid hard landings.
This High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), commonly known as the Humvee, is applying Durasoil to suppress dust over a line of communication (or communications) route that connects an operating military unit with its supply base.
Durasoil can even be gravity fed in freezing temperatures through a spray system such as this spray bar mounted directly to the intermediate bulk container's (IBC Tote's) bottom valve supported and mobilized by a rough terrain reach forklift.
Even on challenging inclines and sharp curves the Durasoil dust suppressant fluid remains reworkable and effective regardless of the season.
With high desert temperatures exceeding 50°C / 122°F for extended periods of time suppressing dust on dry unpaved roads can be extremely difficult but with Durasoil's long-lasting wetting properties that never evaporate dust can be controlled with ease.
Because water evaporates quickly in hot dry dusty environments Durasoil is the product of choice for surface mines around the world to treat their haul roads for long-term dust control and water conservation.
With hundreds of tons continuously rolling over the surface of a Durasoil treated heavy haul mining road traditional watering activities to control dust can be significantly reduced if not completely eliminated especially in subzero Arctic temperatures.
Durasoil synthetic fluid for dust control is the most widely used dust suppressant in the underground mining industry throughout the world because of its re-workable, self-healing and long-term effectiveness that stands up to the extreme abuses of mining operations.
Without Durasoil, unimproved gravel runways are susceptible to losing their soil and aggregate fines which causes raveling and erosion of the runway surface resulting in dust generation, aggregate decomposition, erosion, FOD and ultimately failure of the runway.
Trucking yards and intermodal facilities utilize Durasoil to control dust under the most challenging conditions caused by extreme heavy traffic, tight turning radiuses, forklifts and solid axles that continuously disturb the unpaved surface.
