ProGuard™ Magnesium Chloride Dust Control - Features and Benefits

The hygroscopic properties of magnesium chloride keep the ground moist providing maximum control of dust and dirt. ProGuard™ Magnesium can be used on gravel roads, parking lots and driveways as well as in mining operations and construction areas.

A high performance dust control agent, ProGuard™ Magnesium is designed to:

  • Create safer road conditions by increasing driver visibility.
  • Promote healthier air quality for people, pets and plants by protecting against the health threats of fugitive dust which can aggravate respiratory problems.
  • Reduce costly soil erosion and loss of aggregate resulting in longer lasting, safer roads and surfaces.
  • Prevent fugitive dust from washing off into streams, creeks and lakes improving water quality.

General Properties and Guidelines

Safe to handle, ProGuard™ Magnesium for dust control will not cause burning or stinging and is free of toxic metals and substances. Application rates vary based on soil type and traffic volume; typical application rates range from 1.0 to 2.3 liters per square meter / 0.2 to 0.5 gallons per square yard. Follow up application rates are applied at half the initial dosage.

Colorado State University Study

A study conducted by Colorado State University on the “Relative Effectiveness of Road Dust Suppressants” concluded that a 59% reduction in total aggregate loss was achieved when unpaved roads were treated with magnesium chloride.
