Surface Sealant/Oxidation Control

LiquiTarp is not only a powerful sealant used to control dust emissions from storage piles of coal, the water insoluble crust that is formed on the surface also helps the pile shed water and reduce oxygen intake.  Both of these additional performance attributes help slow down the oxidation process which leads to self-heating and the potential of spontaneous combustion.   LiquiTarp helps customers avoid hot spots and smokers while reducing BTU loss of coal in a long term storage scenario.  In many cases, these benefits offer a significant ROI from the application.
