Over a month ago, Petraviam was applied to this ranch road leaving the surface smooth and dust free. Watch the video as the driver takes you on 3-minute journey out the ranch road and down the county road. The ranch road is smooth at speeds of 45-miles per hour. The untreated county road is dusty, rough and at 40-miles per hour, uncomfortable to drive on.
.Metco is a storage company that has enclosed and open storage for rent. With Petraviam applied, customers have easier access to their boats, trucks and recreational vehicles. With a cleaner facility, occupancy and rents improve providing a 6-month payback.
"Our facility was dusty when dry and muddy after a rain. We've seen a big improvement after the Petraviam was applied. Dust was eliminated, mud too, customers are happier and revenues are up."
General Manager, Metco
"After a really hard rain we used to have deep ruts that left mud on everyone's shoes and vehicles. After our company had Petraviam applied, rain and mud are gone. Our business runs cleaner and faster."
CFO, Outlander, Inc.
"We're a logistics company, heavy trucks and freight are key to our business. Petraviam holds up to the tractor trailers that roll in and out of here daily."

States and municipalities are moving to unpaved roads to contain costs and improve the environment. As reported in Wired Magazine1, 27 states have made the move.
By un-paving instead of repaving, the city of Montpelier, Vermont, saved about $120,000—a big chunk for a city whose annual budget for street building and repairs was $1.3 million.
Plus, using materials like cement are expensive and environmentally unfriendly, the cement industry is a huge producer of the green house gas, carbon dioxide — responsible for about 5 percent of all global emissions. 2
Asphalt is harmful as well as it contains Volatile Organic Compounds such as benzene, and other known carcinogens. Coal tar, used in many surfacing applications is actually even more hazardous to the environment and ultimately our health.
Water is a powerful force. For roads, facilities parking and infrastructure, erosion caused by water can destroy natural gravel roads and surfaces such as asphalt and chip seal, creating potholes and worse yet, wash outs that make it impossible for repair personnel to restore services after severe weather. Watch how Petraviam creates an impervious surface that repels water, yet maintains a high traction environment.
