CLEVELAND, Ohio, Feb. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Euclid Chemical Company (Euclid Chemical), a leading manufacturer of products for the concrete and masonry construction industry, announced today it has been awarded a new patent for its dust- limiting aggregate, DL Technology™, which is used in Euclid Chemical's line of E3 epoxy grouts.
The patented technology was developed by Euclid Chemical researchers to support worker safety by reducing the amount of dust released into the environment during epoxy grout handling and mixing. This unique aggregate is a progressive approach to OSHA's Respirable Crystalline Silica standard, which became effective in 2017 and requires employers to limit construction workers' exposure to crystalline silica, a known cause of silicosis and other lung diseases.

Euclid Chemical's robust line of epoxy grouts is formulated with contractor-friendly features, including easy installation, flowability, and soap and water cleanup. Plus, it eliminates the need for workers to construct dust-free clean rooms around grouting areas. The products in the E3 line include:
