DustChek is used for long term dust suppression on mining sites and haul roads, container yards, access roads, vineyards, hardstands, quarries, sub-division works and earthworks projects.
Thousands of dollars are spent on haul road construction to ensure stability and reliability for haul traffic, but sadly the effort often falls short of producing a durable finished pavement. Continual dust problems coupled with a constant need for surface course maintenance are a major cost to miners. Not to mention the increase in tyre wear as the surface of haul roads is over watered, re-graded and re-shaped constantly by water carts and maintenance crews.
The answer to dust suppression is simple, cost effective and environment sensitive.
DustChek improves the strength and flexibility of the wear course, creating a tightly bound pavement that releases less fines under the stress of heavy traffic.
DustChek is a water-soluble polymer, and the pure simplicity of its use is the reason for its popularity. The process is not new, but had simply been forgotten amongst the throng of technical advancements in road building and maintenance machinery.
Simplicity and tried and true techniques are the key.
DustChek delivers a tight surface with flexibility and a strong resistance to water and requires only the use of on site equipment for application. A surface course with these qualities has all the obvious advantages.
The process uses in-situ material to produce a same-day result. Hauls roads treated with DustChek require watering only a few times weekly and the maintenance level is reduced in proportion. As is down time due to rain events.

PolyCom Stabilising Aid - PolyCom is an innovative road stabilisation product that enables road makers to build high integrity pavements from almost any naturally occurring material. Just 2 kilograms of PolyCom transforms 100 tonnes of road material into a stronger, longer lasting pavement, resulting in economies of transport never experienced in the industry.
PolyCom treated roads last up to six times longer than untreated roads, resulting in significant financial savings due to reduced road maintenance, water usage, plant maintenance and carbon emissions. In 2014, Earthco Projects won a 2014 Banksia Awards and Premier's Sustainability Award for their work building sustainable roads with PolyCom Stabilising Aid.
DustChek Dust Control - DustChek reduces dust on mining and industrial roads where there is an ongoing watering program in place. Also used for dust control on stockpiles, rom pads and open areas, the application of DustChek enables water savings of up to 90% and improved traction, whilst reducing maintenance requirements and delivering substantial savings to haul fleet operations as a result.
QPR Pavement Repair - QPR is a ready-made bagged asphalt used for permanent repairs on potholes, utility cuts and damaged pavements. QPR contains a proprietary mix of ingredients designed to stay where it's put. QPR is available in 15kg bags and pails, 22kg bags and 1 tonne bags.
