RST Formula Helps Maintain Unsealed Roads

December 1, 2019

Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST) released a new chemically advanced formula Guardian Roadbinder to the market for the construction and maintenance of unsealed roads and surfaces that can support high volumes of heavy vehicle traffic while reducing dust and erosion.

Guardian Roadbinder is the latest technology in RST’s suite of road stabilizing and dust-suppressant products used across the globe to build and maintain unsealed roads that are safer, more durable and require less water treatments and maintenance.

By using Guardian Roadbinder during construction and in the maintenance of unsealed roads and surfaces, companies in the mining, agriculture and civil construction industries are achieving higher quality unsealed roads that are resistant to erosion and dust, and reduce the need for regular watering and repair which saves time and money.

Immediate results have been remarkable, with RST clients noting the product’s unique ability to form mechanically high-resistant road pavements that remain flexible and dust-free for significant periods of time without the need for dust suppression watering or regular maintenance to combat erosion.

RST Operations and Technical Director David Handel said Guardian Roadbinder is a chemically advanced product, the first of its kind on the global market and just one of the innovative solutions RST continues to offer its clients to improve their operations.

“Guardian Roadbinder has been specifically developed for the construction and reconstruction of strong, durable unsealed roads that can support high volumes of heavy vehicle traffic while minimizing dust emissions over extended periods of time without the need for regular watering,” he said.

“This product is achieving outstanding results for our clients as it is can be tailored to suit a site’s specific conditions and requirements, from improving materials used in sub-grade preparation through to water cart applications and maintenance operations.

“Including Guardian Roadbinder throughout the building and maintenance processes will reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep a road safe, dust-free and open to traffic.

“We’ve developed Guardian Roadbinder with our clients’ needs in mind and the result is a robust product that is achieving immediate results, dramatically cutting down water usage and importantly, improving safety outcomes.”

Guardian Roadbinder is applied during road construction and is also used as part of an operation’s ongoing road-watering program to achieve the highest dust suppression results with significantly less watering requirements.
