Learn how to add nature’s glue to existing gravel surfacing and “Make Gravel Roads Great Again!” Specifying good gravel is tough enough, but how can we make poor and tired gravel perform better? While even the best of gravels can’t match the year around qualities of asphalt, we can sweeten the mix and make them better with a small percentage of clay. Join gravel expert:


Steve Monlux , PE and LVR consultant, as he shares the secrets of adding a very small percentage of clay to hold gravel surfacing together. You’ll find out why clay is nature’s glue for gravel surfacing.

Kelly McCollam, DMC Wear Parts, will demonstrate new quick-change cutting edge technologies that makes easy work of cutting road surfaces and blending clay into the mix.

Todd Pendleton, Roadworx, will show us how to apply Mag Chloride and explain how clay binder in gravel surfacing enhances dust treatments.

Dale Heglund, NDLTAP will review gravel surfacing test sections and new performance prediction programs. No glue/clay results in washboarding, dust, float, safety hazards and high maintenance costs. What’s holding your gravel together?
