Glycerin for dust control

For those of you that have used glycerin for dust control on roads

when it rains, does it develop into a slimy soapy mess?

or is it more impervious, like asphalt?

Good question... sorry I don't have an answer.

But, I started wondering... is it a good idea to essentially be spraying sugar on the roads? Do the critters learn to eat it?

We have used it successfuly for dust supression. Much longer acting when compared to water. Suppressed dust for 3 weeks + even after 5mm of rain. Did not go slimey with rain. Glycerin is a good soil wetter so rain absorbed quickly. Seemed to form a layer or crust on the surface. We also tried a undiluted batch: result: dilute with water.

Does anyone have any followup information on this topic? It is something I'm interested in developing as dust control is my business.

DusDown is run by a fellow in Australia that has done a lot in this area. If he decides to pipe in and tell his story it is quite the tale given his situation. A true story of courage.

He may have mentioned it in our emails but I can't remember and do not keep old emails (unless potential legal stuff could arise).

I am sure if you contact him via his website that he would be willing to divulge certain information to help you. Quite an affable fellow really.

We're looking at using our waste glycerol on our dirt roads but still can't find some dilution and application numbers.

Anyone know the amount of water it's best to dilute the demethed glycerol with and what is the best amount to apply per square yard/meter?

Thanks.

It doesn't matter. Dilute to what your sprayer will easily handle.

I put some down in a friend's boat storage barn where the floor was almost talcum powder in places. I used a fan nozzle on a trash pump. initally, we used about 50/50, and it seemed like it made too much of a mess. when I got it in the neighborhood of 60-70% water, it seemed to soak in better. like I said, first time experince. but the results are outstanding! he even said it seems to have tightened the floor up a bit. it's too wet here right now to try anything outside, but that is next on this little adventure. I'll keep everyone posted.
