Soilworks Receives Second Patent for the World’s First and Only Non-Petroleum Synthetic Dust Suppressant
September 24, 2015
Advanced gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology creates a long-term,
high-performance, and ecological dust suppressant
Scottsdale, Ariz. – Soilworks, the worldwide leader in dust control and soil stabilization products, has been awarded a second U.S .Patent for its revolutionary gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology-based dust control product, Durasoil.
The GTL formulated Durasoil (U.S. Patent No. 9,068,106) produces the purest, greenest and only non-petroleum synthetic dust suppression fluid on the global market today.
Until now, traditional petroleum-based dust suppressants and synthetic fluid derivatives lacked durability and only offered short term effectiveness in limited conditions. With Durasoil’s GTL engineered formula, Soilworks has developed a synthetic compound that not only offers significant long term durability, but is highly effective under broad soil and weather conditions. The result is a safe and non-toxic composition that is capable of reducing the generation of airborne and suspended particulate matter even under the most extreme and demanding environments.
Created from clean and pure natural gas, Durasoil is a specialized liquid dust suppressant primarily designed to control dust by “wetting out” any soil or aggregate on dusty dirt and gravel roads. The outcome is a unique solution that coats, binds and clusters dust particles and weighs them down to control dust without creating a hard and solidified crust. The product is engineered to withstand the most extreme abuse from heavy vehicle traffic including tracked vehicles. Moreover, its water insoluble properties and continuously re-workable formula allows any treated road to be serviced with a motor grader while still maintaining its full dust suppression performance.
“Our patented innovations found in Durasoil are driving expectations for performance, capabilities and environmental efficacy to significant new heights of which our industry has never seen” said Chad Falkenberg, founder of Arizona-based Soilworks, “Our products’ broad-use effectiveness extends well beyond other available solutions demonstrating our continued passion for genuine value through cutting edge technology.”
Other dust suppressants have attempted to address dust control issues and suppress the negative effects associated with uncontrolled and suspended particulates; however, they typically cannot be re-graded, are water soluble and lack durability against vehicle traffic and weather conditions.
Durasoil consistently delivers long term, water insoluble and re-workable dust suppression regardless of weather or temperature conditions, vehicle abuse or soil type.
“It’s essential for us, as the industry leading manufacturer, to move toward a future where the dust control industry is driven by genuine results and environmental efficiency,” Falkenberg said. “Our patented Durasoil technology, exemplifies this goal and has set a new standard for advances in dust suppression technology, quality and performance.”
