This summer, ChemTerra has teamed up with Trican to put CleanTRACKTM dust control to the test in a side-by-side comparison with Calcium Chloride (CaCl2).

CleanTRACK differs from CaCl2 in a few distinct ways. CleanTRACK requires no dilution or mixing and is ready to apply as is.  It is also applied to a dry road, so no need for extra water trucks during application (reducing cost of operations).  It is moisture-repelling, ensuring it does not get slippery in wet conditions and reduces water/snow pooling on road surfaces year-round. These features along with being chemically inert, non-toxic, non-corrosive, odourless and colourless make it a great choice for any road or site application.

5 bases have been selected where the dust control will be applied, and monitored this season: Medicine Hat, Red Deer, Whitecourt, Hinton and Grande Prairie. Each yard will be treated on the same day, with 50% of the area covered in CleanTRACK and 50% of the area covered in CaCl2 at the recommended loadings for each product.

Before and after pictures/videos will be posted on the CleanTRACK website ( We will be looking to compare ease of application as well as a direct comparison for effectiveness and longevity in the same weather conditions and with the same traffic conditions.
