Surtac is a solution comprised of a carbohydrate polysaccharide blend, surfactants, mordants and water, explains Dr. Barry Spargo, head of NRL's Chemical Dynamics and Diagnostics Branch and principal investigator for this research. When applied to sand or dust particles, the solution binds them to form a hardened crust. SoilWorks is marketing the NRL-developed solution under the name SurtacTM .
