One of two Semi-Permanent Runway innovations from Midwest.
Two products, created in our laboratory in tandem to serve any application, protect against any conditions, and perform better than ordinary methods (from water to ordinary topical applications) in order to provide you with lasting strength and environmental safety.
EnviroKleen has been formulated with a polymeric binder, while EK35 has been synthesized with a pitch/rosin binder. Together, they offer engineers an alternative based on your particular runway needs.
Made to cover any applications in any condition, the two offer local communities a choice.
Binding chemistry shows the science behind Semi-Permanent performance.
EnviroKleen has been formulated with a polymeric binder, while EK35 has been synthesized with a pitch/rosin binder. They both provide lasting strength and environmental safety, with the main benefit to transform an ordinary gravel runway into a Semi-Permanent gravel runway that acts like a paved surface.
Unique in the industry, EK35 features a system of naturally-occurring pitch/rosin binders to interlock and durably bind surface aggregate and fines together through both a cohesive mechanism (the internal strength of an adhesive) and an adhesive mechanism (the bonding of an adhesive to a substrate).
Dust is more than a nuisance. It’s a major health issue.
Get a pavement-like surface and superior dust control with EK35.
As fines are generated, they are captured and prevented from escaping as dust.
EK35 stands as the superior choice for industrial, construction and municipal applications. It quickly penetrates dust and remains actively effective on clay, sand, limestone and most native soils, regardless of the weather or how severe the traffic. EK35 provides longer-lasting performance and retains its performance with fewer applications compared to other dust-control and surface-stabilization methods.
