Mines and utilities can be faced with storing large volumes of coal. This can lead to several material handling challenges including dusting off the pile, wet coal flow issues, spontaneous combustion concerns, as well as deterioration in coal quality. 100LX is a high quality latex material that forms a durable, water resistant crust that helps combat each of the aforementioned material handling concerns.

Sealing a pile with 100LX can control dust for months and even years if done properly. The material creates a crust designed to withstand solar stressing, rain and freezing conditions, as well as elevated wind speeds. Most commonly used to control dust, a properly sealed pile will shed water and alleviate wet coal flow challenges when reclaimed. In addition, the crusting agent reduces air flow through the coal pile which reduces the likelihood of spontaneous combustion.
