Semi-permanent

GRAVEL RUNWAY

Extend your gravel runway surface life between 7 to 20 years.

The first and only semi-permanent gravel runway from the leading innovators in soil stabilization and dust control.

the science behind surface stabilization

A binder system keeps gravel and fines bound together and in the surface. Ordinary topical applications are temporary, losing aggregate and releasing dust.

Midwest uses a complete system of synthetic fluid plus binder, to keep gravel and fines tightly packed for a more uniform, smooth surface with greater surface stiffness.

  • improves rated performance and increases breaking
  • lasts up to 4 years before maintenance application
  • 24x less gravel loss and up to 95% dust reduction
  • sheds moisture, doesn’t wash away and performs after thaws
  • reduces potholes, rutting, wash boarding

VS.

Ordinary topical applications without a binder system can only serve as a temporary measure that requires repeated application.

  • not effective on high traffic runways
  • does not stand up to larger aircraft
  • no stabilization is provided to the surface
  • product leaches off the runway
  • surface is compromised and subject to damage

THE RIGHT CHOICE CAN MAKE YOUR GRAVEL RUNWAY PERFORM LIKE A PAVED SURFACE

The choice is between a semi-permanent solution vs. repeated temporary, less effective surface applications.

That choice is between Midwest science – in the form of a fluid synthesized to penetrate, coat and bond for longevity and surface strength PLUS a binding system – vs. ordinary fluid WITHOUT any binding.

That choice is between expert application based on the actual conditions of your soil characteristics, your aggregate quality, availability, your weather conditions and usage particulars your community needs and environmental concerns vs. a one-size-fits-all periodic repetition of simply reapplying a topical fluid and hoping for the best.

That choice is between the most advanced chemistry, customized engineering, and methodical installation practices designed to last long and stay strong vs. lost opportunity and lost investment.

Why a binder?

Greater strength and longevity make your Midwest gravel runway more like a paved surface.

Binders strengthen runway surfaces and render them better able to retain fines by preventing them from coming loose as dust or washing out the surface. In addition, treatment with products containing binders last longer, increase a runway’s resistance to weather, and require substantially less product to get the job done over time.

MADE FOR MORE APPLICATIONS AND MORE MATERIALS IN MORE CONDITIONS

The science behind a Midwest Semi-Permanent Gravel Runway centers around a proprietary polymeric binder and a resin binder made from renewable resources.

  • superior for industrial, commercial and municipal applications
  • quickly penetrates dust and remains actively effective on clay, sand, gravel, limestone and most native soils
  • remains in stable binding mode, regardless of weather or traffic severity
  • binder systems interlock to 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)
  • as particulates are generated, they are captured to prevent them from escaping

MIDWEST SEMI-PERMANENT DUST CONTROL IS THE
GOLD STANDARD

Midwest science makes pavement-like strength and stability possible for your gravel runway.

A synthetic fluid and binder, scientifically formulated by Midwest specifically for the purpose of drastically improving gravel runway performance, delivers.

  • superior strength and longevity
  • a lower cost of ownership
  • freedom from cumbersome regulations
  • better community service
