Our Products


Copolymers have been around for at least 100 years. Copolymers have been used in such things as medicine, adhesives, & textiles. And now, they are being applied to road stabilization and dust control.  

TortiShell™ is a long-chain copolymer that forms a complex lattice of minute, yet strong and flexible bonds capable of binding small particles together.

In this case it is very valuable for road stabilization and dust control. For example, our TortiShell™ product is a proprietary product and was developed in concert with chemical engineers and PhD polymer chemists, who assist Pacific Inter-Mountain Distribution with the copolymer formulation. TortiShell™ is a next generation copolymer formulation specifically designed to be used in the mining industry for heavy haul road development and maintenance, leach pads, tailing treatment, erosion and dust control; it is a cost effective and environmentally safe product for road stabilization and dust control.

We work directly with our clients to customize our polymers to their specific needs.  This allows us to offer an unparalleled customer experience and help make your job easier.  

In addition to COpolymers, we supply a range of niche products which include:

  • Activated carbon

  • Low density fills

  • Specialty proteins

  • Oil based dust control
