Car Top Binding


Car Top Binding

AKJ Chemical's premier car top binder, DustLock, has been used to treat more than 1 billion tons of coal and counting.  The specially formulated polymer creates a strong but flexible crust that can withstand heavy winds and mechanical vibration.  With BNSF approval and more than a decade of application experience, AKJ is the world leader in the car top binder space. 


DustLock not only controls dust in transit, it eliminates material loss and is far more economic and efficient to apply than physical covers.  Additional benefits are helping the payload shed water during in-transit moisture events and reducing oxygen flow through the material.  These performance characteristics often yield significant ROI and help maintain environmental and regulatory compliance.
