ProGuard™ MAG is a high performance dust control and soil stabilization agent designed to extend the life of your gravel roads and surfaces. Composed of magnesium chloride (MgCl2), ProGuard™ MAG works by binding fine dust and aggregate particles to keep surfaces stable and dust free.
The hygroscopic properties of magnesium chloride keep the ground moist providing maximum control of dust and dirt. ProGuard™ MAG 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™ MAG is designed to:
Safe to handle, ProGuard™ MAG 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 applications rates are applied at half the initial dosage.

Magnesium chloride and calcium chloride solutions cannot be compared at equivalent percentages as they have different molecular weights. Molecular weight conversion has been universally adopted in most US States and Canadian provinces.
Innovative’s magnesium chloride is safe for the environment. This naturally occurring product is approved for organic use in agriculture.
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.
