Cost Benefits

Trans Seal can substantially reduce the costs associated with dust suppression and erosion control by:

  • Reducing the need for blading, watering, and gravel replacement
  • Reducing vehicle maintenance costs by lowering the levels of dust that clogs filters, bearings, and machinery
  • Producing a smooth, firm driving surface which increases productivity, decreases fuel consumption, saves time, and minimizes replacement costs of suspension drive lines and tires
  • Preventing costly soil erosion caused by destructive wind conditions or heavy rain
  • Minimizing the cost of cleaning and protects value of vehicles, equipment, property, vegetation, and living sites
  • Reduces replacement expenses of windshields by controlling gravel spray
  • Protecting pasture land and improving crop production and quality

Safety First

Trans Seal I can play a key role in your commitment to safety by:

  • Improving visibility which reduces the risk of accidents
  • Effectively binds surfaces reducing the risk of injury from flying stones and loose gravel
  • Suppressing dust to support cleaner air, cleaner equipment, and cleaner vehicles
  • Promoting better health and mitigating employee risk due to fugitive dust emissions
  • Mitigating erosion and potholes protecting employees from unsafe road conditions

Environmentally Responsible Approach to Dust Control

If you are using chlorides, lignin's, enzymes, or oil-based products for dust control, make the switch to Trans Seal I. Trans Seal I offers superior dust control and soil stabilization in the harshest environments. By eliminating the need for constant watering, Trans Seal I protects our most precious resource, water.
Trans Seal I provides an environmentally responsible approach to dust control and soil stabilization that produces a safer working environment while saving money!

Trans Seal I Dilution Ratios

Typical Dilution Factors and Solution Application Rates for a 5/8” to 1” Crust

Product Soil Application Dilution (Product to Water) Trans Seal I Required (gal/acre) Application Rate (gal/yd2) Water Required (gal/acre) Penetrometer Test (tons/ft2) Drop Ball Test (Pass/Fail) Thickness of Crust (in)
Trans Seal I Heavy 1 to 40 65 0.54 2600 1.50 Pass 5/8 - 1
Trans Seal I Heavy 1 to 60 43 0.54 2600 1.00 Pass 5/8 - 1
Trans Seal I Moderate 1 to 80 32 0.54 2600 0.75 Pass 5/8 - 1
Trans Seal I Light 1 to 100 26 0.54 2600 0.75 Pass 5/8 - 1
Trans Seal I Light 1 to 150 17 0.54 2600 0.50 Pass 5/8 - 1

Typical Dilution Factors and Solution Application Rates for a 1/4” to 3/8” Crust

Product Soil Application Dilution (Product to Water) Trans Seal I Required (gal/acre) Application Rate (gal/yd2) Water Required (gal/acre) Penetrometer Test (tons/ft2) Drop Ball Test (Pass/Fail) Thickness of Crust (in)
Trans Seal I Light 1 to 60 24 0.30 1500 0.75 Pass 1/4 – 3/8
Trans Seal I Light 1 to 80 18 0.30 1500 0.50 Pass 1/4 – 3/8

Example:

Formula for Coverage: Length of lot (ft) x width of lot (ft) x 0.06 (gal/ft2) = Gallons of mixed solution to be applied

1. 180’ x 180’ x 0.06 = 1,944 gallons of mixed solution
2. 1,944 gallons / 80 = 24 gallons of Tran Seal I
