ESSI BioSeal Active
BioSeal Active is a permeable environmentally stable sealing agent for application to agricultural soils, dry or disused tailings dams and roads and denuded areas to provide a sealing solution reducing evaporation, erosion and dust. BioSeal, a viscous material applied by water cart, agricultural spray system or spray hose,l cures over a two to forty eight hour period, depending on climate as a nonfriable seal. It relaxes surface tension when wet, returning to a structured growth and soil supporting seal when dry.

ESSI BioSeal Super
BioSeal Super is a semi-permeable to minimally permeable environmentally stable sealing agent for tailings and spoils areas with significant potential for the sealing/lining of temporary water retention facilities.
The material will initially cure to a rubbery consistency which with time and temperature increase will form a solid Bakelite similarity nonfriable seal. When covered in water, moisture will gradually penetrate causing the sealant to become supple; returning to a firm consistency, increasing to solid following drying.
