Application on private test road
The CleanTRACK team had the opportunity to apply this product on a private road for an application trial, as well as a vehicle road dust trial. CleanTRACK was applied on November 10, 2016 with a spray bar mounted on the back of a truck. The road was coated using an approximate loading of 0.75 L/m². Prior to the application date, there was no rain, wet or wintery conditions so the product was applied to a completely dry road. No mixing, compacting or tamping was required upon application since the product soaked into the road immediately. It should be noted that the road will appear wet, which allows operators to see where the product has been applied.
Two Week Update
The CleanTRACK video was shot on November 24, 2016, two weeks after the product was applied to see how the product performed. Although the gravel and soil had a darker appearance than the untreated road, it felt dry to the touch. The product had penetrated and completely covered the visible gravel and soil. Manually brushing around the road surface revealed no visibly uncoated or lighter spots.
During the road dust trials, multiple vehicles were driven continuously up and down the uncoated and coated parts of the road to demonstrate the visible difference in airborne fines between the two sections.
