There is no denying - the unique advantages trapped air bubbles give our cover products are both tangible and verifiable.
The concept is simple.
Air Entrainment (trapping of air bubbles) increases the cover thickness and stickiness, the same way air adds viscosity and thickness to whipping cream. Like whipping cream, our mixtures can fill voids and be spread out over large areas.
These air bubbles also make our cover materials light enough to suppress odors in places like sludge ponds, when solids are only 50 to 60% of the total landfill mass.
These “magic” air bubbles have 2 other distinct advantages:
* They create a ideal barrier for suppressing escaping VOC's and other gases.
* They reduce oxygen permeation into the cells.
Both of these attributes make our air bubble technology products an ideal solution when converting landfill gas into energy.
Benefits in seeding
ConCover's line of sprayable slurries use those same "Magic Bubbles" for seeding situations - insulating and enhancing vegetative regeneration in areas with severe climates, unique topographical landscapes, and inaccessible areas where using conventional turf application methods just isn’t feasible.
An Easy Comparison Test
The superiority of our covers and the benefits of these air mixture bubbles is demonstrated by the "Hand Inversion Test."
Dip your hand into a batch of the fully mixed product (don’t worry it’s 100% green & non-toxic!) and hold it upside down – and see if gravity will do its thing.
As the picture clearly shows, the superior viscosity and bonding ability of our product is irrefutable. After all, If it can't stick to your hand, how can it stick to the aluminum cans or plastics found in a typical landfill?
NWC products will also bond to extremely difficult veneers - including vertical surfaces and more.
Summary of Benefits of NWC's "Magic Bubble" Technology
Sticks to plastic, metal, wood… and almost everything else in your landfill
Adheres to vertical and other difficult to bond to landfill substrates
Creates a thick vapor-suppressing layer that minimizes escaping odor carried by evaporating moisture
When dry, our mixture won’t easily wash off because of the quality and types of organic polymers used
Provides an excellent visually looking cover material
Use for “on the spot” litter control - grabbing blowing debris like fly paper
Fills your landfill’s contours far more effectively than other products on the market, allowing for a evenly spread cover
If you’re currently using a competitor’s spray-on cover, why not take our Hand Inversion Test yourself? Try their product vs. ours – and you‘ll see why ConCover products are quickly becoming the waste industry’s preferred cover solution.
