Calcium chloride have been used to control dust on gravel roadways for many years, reducing maintenance costs. Chloride will bind fine dust slowing down erosion from rains and keeping the larger aggregate intact. Solid calcium chloride products may be spread directly, or dissolved in water and spread as a liquid. In the U.S., the most common liquid concentration used for dust control is 38%.
