Long stretches of unsealed road (8km) linking the Penrice quarry to the nearest rail network regularly carry loaded trucks weighing up to 150 tonnes (typical full load). Under normal quarry traffic, this section of road has generated significant dust problems for neighbouring properties, requiring around 50,000L of water per day from water trucks to control the dust. Applying our BASE-CAP product with the use of basic road making equipment, such as grader and roller, we can generate road surfaces that control dust as effectively as concrete or bitumen.

On this quarry, our specialists have delivered road surfaces with zero dust after 6 years. BASE-CAP facilitates an interaction between the polymer, water and base course materials (mixture of fines and coarse granular road base). Where suitable pressure is applied through vibrating or heavy rubber-tyre roller, extremely strong bonds are made at the road base level. These roads are not slippery, but rather have higher permeability than both unsealed and sealed roads.
