It is widely recognized, through studies and testing, that the use of road salts causes significant corrosion problems for buildings and architecture. So undeniable is the evidence of road salt corrosion that potential damage is often estimated by using data from coastal architecture corrosion caused by natural sea salt. Basically, that means that comparing the weather and humidity in an area where road salts are used, to a similar coastal region, provides a real world model of how much damage results from the use of road salts. Similarly, it has been found that the use of magnesium chloride is a … Read More

While there are a variety of competitive products on the market, especially here in North America, most do no possess the same environmental qualities that our Cypher Dust Stop products can attest to. Other alternatives in the product category are road salts, more specifically and primarily Magnesium Chloride, followed closely by Calcium Chloride, both of which are highly corrosive products. The main attraction to these products is their low cost, which is admittedly lower than the options Cypher provides. However as time goes on and environmental issues become more and more in public view, customers are more willing to pay … Read More

Mines tend to be located in some of the world’s wildest and most isolated spots. Mine roads have to endure continuous traffic from heavy loads, especially from the trucks and equipment that have to be transported to and from the mines. The Cypher EarthZyme soil stabilizer was formulated especially with the requirements of the mining industry in mind. EarthZyme has been proven to have massive load bearing capacity as compared to competitor products. EarthZyme has been used on mining, logging and oil operations around the world. One recent project was located in Colombia, in one of South America’s largest … Read More
As of 2003, as much as 70% of the 3.9 million miles of roadway in the United States were unpaved. These unpaved roads are responsible for more than 10 million tons of particulate matter emissions each year. There are dangers to unwanted fugitive dust -these particles can become lodge in the respiratory area where they can cause severe irritation when inhaled. Smaller particles (particles that are 2.5 microns or smaller) can go even deeper into the human respiratory system and into the lungs where they can cause damage to the epithelial cells. These small particles may even be passed into … Read More
