Spray-On Pavement Makes Dust-Free Roads
Soil-SementÍ is a special acrylic polymer that bonds with dirt, rock, etc., to sup-press dust and create a hard surface without the expense of paving or oiling.
"Soil-Sement costs just 10 cents per sq. ft. installed, compared with 90 cents per sq. ft. in cost of materials alone for asphalt," says Jim Hand, president of America West, distributor.
"For grain piles, the area must first be crowned so it will drain properly, then compacted with a roller," he says. "Rate is 1 gal. per 80 sq. ft. if a grain vac is used to re-move grain and 1 gal to 40 sq. ft. if a front end loader is used. That's basically the same rate for roads and lanes. We'd anticipate a maintenance application would be needed on a farm driveway - not necessarily full rate - within a season."
Available in 55-gal. drums or 275-gal.
bulk tanks beginning at $3.75 per gal.
