An alternative to Soiltac, Gorilla-Snot is the value-engineered version of Soiltac. Like Soiltac, it is an eco-safe, biodegradable, liquid copolymer used to provide erosion control and dust suppression.
How It Works
The Problem of Untreated Dust
Designed to be Different
Gorilla-Snot is comprised of long, nanoparticle molecular structures that link and cross-link together to form strong bonds between particulates, soils and aggregates. The solution is designed to be easily applied topically to almost any soil or aggregate. A modest application will create a light surface crust that remains water permeable for air and water, yet perfect for controlling dust and suppressing PM10 and PM2.5 particulate matter to maintain air quality and visibility. Increased applications of Gorilla-Snot are highly effective for roads and other traffic areas. The product is designed to penetrate into the ground creating a strong and resilient, yet flexible, surface wear course that can withstand the intense abuse of vehicle traffic and environmental conditions.
Gorilla-Snot in Action
Kind to the Environment
Gorilla-Snot is a biodegradable, copolymer-based dispersion that is primarily designed to control dust and erosion. It’s non-hazardous, meaning it’s safe for the environment and safe to transport by land, sea or air. Gorilla-Snot will not migrate away from treated areas and will not seep into the groundwater. It will not wash away in the rain and it does not re-emulsify with water.
