Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate

The highly concentrated, yet low viscosity and environmentally friendly form of Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate provides a superior dust control product that is very easy to mix and apply. The product penetrates even the hardest compacted materials and is able to withstand even the heaviest weights found in mine haul road environments around the world. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate has extremely long lasting results in many applications that exhibit high amounts of traffic, even longer on tailings pile and stock pile dust and erosion control applications. The highly concentrated formula of the product also means that Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is able to be mixed with several parts water prior to its application, reducing expensive shipping costs. The versatility of the product relies heavily on the highly flexible film that it forms, this enables it to bend, without cracking, even with heavy industrial type traffic loads travelling on the treated roads.

Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is mixed with water prior to its application. Once the product is mixed with water, it will not separate, so Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate can be pre-mixed at a central location prior to its application and then transported to the application site. Because there is no viscosity build with the product, Dust Stop liquid Concentrate can be applied with virtually any water truck or spraying tank. Once the product sets up on the road or soil, it produces a hard, dust free barrier that provides an excellent running surface. One feature about Dust Stop Liquid concentrate that customers like the most is that the product becomes insoluble once it cures on the road, so it provides extremely long lasting dust control results, even in wet weather, and will not run-off in the rain.

Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate will maintain the natural look of the road once it cures as it will dry fully transparent, most customers do not even know that a dust control product has been applied until they see the lack of dust! The application rates can be custom tailored by altering the dilution rate of the product to meet the needs of any specific dust control or erosion control project. Heavier applications of Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate will not only yield long term dust control results, but will provide some soil stabilization properties as well. Because the product is non-corrosive, it will not harm the vehicles using treated roads or the equipment used to apply it.

Benefits

  • Environmentally friendly alternative for dust control on heavily trafficked roads.
  • Long lasting, high tensile strength of cured film allows for durability even with higher volumes / weights of traffic.

  • Saves huge volumes of water for mining and other industrial clients that use water only, as a form of dust suppression.
  • Easy to apply and non-corrosive, so it will not damage water trucks or other road maintenance equipment, such as graders.
  • Surfactants in DSLC allow it to penetrate harder packed soils, which yields longer lasting results.
  • Increases CBR (California Bearing Ratio) of the treated road, resulting in a more stable running surface.
  • Reduces Rolling Resistance on mine haul roads, providing roads that allow for better fuel efficiency of the haul trucks that are operating on them.
  • Suitable for a wide variety of applications including haul roads, secondary roads, stock piles, tailings piles, rail cars, and other erosion control applications.
  • Dust Stop® is mixed with water and applied topically to the road or soil, or lightly mixed into the top few inches for longer lasting results and more road stability. Once the film dries on the road it provides lasting dust control results by binding all the soil materials together. Learn more about Dust Stop’s uses and the application process here.

FAQ

Dust is an aerosol of particles of any solid material, usually with particulate size less than 100 microns. On Earth, dust occurs in the atmosphere from various sources; soil dust lifted up by wind and traffic, volcanic eruptions, and pollution are some examples. Airborne dust is considered an aerosol and can have a strong local effect on climate and the environment.
Dust control should be used to minimize the risks involved with the generation and movement of dust particles emanating from any trafficked unpaved surfaces. It is estimated that for every vehicle traveling one mile of unpaved roadway once a day, every day for a year, one ton of dust is deposited along a corridor extending 500 feet out on either side of the road. This dust poses a threat to human health through inhalation into the lungs, as well as a threat to the safety of the people using the road due to the reduced visibility caused by the thick clouds of dust. The creation of dust is also quite costly because it represents significant annual losses in fine soil material and can cause damage via abrasion to moving parts of the vehicles traveling on the road. Applying dust control product will help to minimize these threats and provide a much safer, healthier road environment.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is an environmentally friendly, polymer based, dust control product. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is applicable to any soil type, is available in a concentrated liquid form and will provide cost effective, superior dust suppression and soil stabilization results.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate’s proprietary formula is composed of environmental friendly polymers. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate utilizes these polymers in a concentrated liquid form to produce a very effective dust control product that is applicable to any soil type.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate has numerous benefits associated with its use as a dust control product.

Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is affective in cold weather, freeze thaw cycles or other fluctuations in temperature. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is supplied in concentrated liquid form, allowing for easier application. And as far as dust control products are concerned, Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is the easiest to apply and most effective dust suppression product on the market today that is also environmentally friendly.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate should be used on your roads because it is effective during long periods of dry weather, yet will not run-off in the rain. Its highly flexible film that forms, once cured on the road material, offers a unique ability to provide not only great dust suppression, but also some unique stability improvements, resulting in reduced maintenance requirements and costs. Ultimately, this highly flexible film provides for an end result that makes Dust Stop liquid Concentrate an ideal choice for heavily trafficked roads of any kind.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is an effective dust control product on any unpaved roads or surfaces requiring dust suppression and temporary soil stabilization. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is effective on mine haul roads, logging roads, municipal roads, secondary roads, county roads, access roads, runways & helipads, parking lots, driveways and a wide range of other applications that require dust suppression or temporary stabilization such as stockpiles, erosion control and open haulage situations.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate can be applied either topically or mixed in utilizing standard road maintenance equipment. DSLC is designed to penetrate into the soil as a topical solution but will provide longer results mixed into the top layer of the road. The mix in procedure is generally scheduled during a period of routine maintenance, when the road is scarified and graded to correct wash boarding, potholes and other deformities. In general the soil is loosened and bladed into a windrow, DSLC is added to water as prescribed by Cypher representative, the mixture is sprayed over the soil, lightly mix prior to shaping and compacting. More detailed instructions are available from your Cypher representative.
There is no significant effect on Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate if it is subjected to rain. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate contains a blend of polymers that once cured are hold their strength in the presence of water. DSLC is non soluble once it cures. Soils treated with Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate Liquid Concentrate also exhibit negligible sediment, protecting local waterways from sediment loading during high rain events.
Yes, Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is an effective dust control product during long periods of dry weather. One reason Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is so effective in dry weather is that, unlike chloride-based products, Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is not hygroscopic so it does not rely 100% on the ambient moisture in the atmosphere to work. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate will produce a high tensile strength film that is able to penetrate the soil / road and eliminate the potential dispersion of PM 10 dust particles (and smaller) that pose the biggest threat to human health and the environment. Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is highly effective as a dust control product in dry weather because the film lasts; it is very resistant to breakdown by both UV rays (from the sun) and enzymes (soil microbes).
Yes, Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is an effective dust control product on any soil type. Because the film produced by Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate will bond to almost any solid material it is exposed to, it will incorporate any soil particles it touches into the film once it cures. Therefore, almost any soil type can be treated with Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate. However, the application rate of Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate that is recommended may vary slightly depending on the soil type being treated.
Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is a long lasting dust control solution, designed to reduce the frequency of treatments compared to other dust control methods. Some variables that will affect the longevity of an application would be the application rate used, type of soil, type and amount of traffic and climatic conditions. The application rate will have the greatest effect on the longevity of dust control results you see; the stronger you apply Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate, the longer it will last. Some Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate users apply Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate at rates that are much less concentrated and on a more frequent basis, therefore in essence making these applications maintenance doses and allowing for a more cost-effective long-term use of the product.
