Industrial and mining sites have regulations that limit the amount of particulate allowed in the atmosphere.
Fine particles, including dust, act to help hold the surface of untreated roads together. With a loss of fine particles from the roadway, there is an increase in roadway surface ravelling and maintenance costs.
HydroSperse is formulated to suppress dust and its application procedure is easy. The benefit of HydroSperse compared to water is that it wets the aggregate much better than water only. The product not only wets the surface better than water; it also has slight binding properties.
Traps and retains moisture for longer than water
Aids water to cover bigger surface area
Reduce fugitive dust and improves driver’s visibility
At least 25% savings on water cart fleet is realised
