Applying Dust Stop® to unpaved roads will lower maintenance costs and provide overall operational cost savings. Dust Stop® is effective on any type of unpaved surfaces requiring dust or erosion control—not only roads but also stockpiles, tailings piles and slopes.
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 increased road stability. Once the film dries on the road, it provides lasting dust control by binding all the soil materials together.
Traditional dust control products have a range of side effects that have a negative impact on the environment, such as the use of chloride-based road salts, which are highly corrosive, cause rust on vehicles and machinery and can be harmful to roadside vegetation.
All Dust Stop products are made with environmentally friendly inputs that have no adverse effect on the environment. Our solutions have been designed to withstand heavy traffic, such as on mining haul roads, while also being cost-effective for suppressing dust on secondary roads for counties and municipalities with limited road maintenance budgets.
Dust Stop products are applied using standard equipment and techniques, making them easy for customers to use worldwide, whether they’re applied to a community road, a haul road in a dust-control project or a tailings pile at a mining operation.
To apply Dust Stop® topically, add water to a water truck and then add Dust Stop®. Applications and dilution rates are based on average or typical situations. However, due to varying conditions, you may need to alter application rates and procedures, based on variables in your own road environment.
For topical road applications, traffic should remain off the road for a short period of time after application to allow the product to penetrate the surface. Drying time will vary, based on local soil and weather conditions. If possible, apply product to only one lane at a time so traffic does not need to be stopped or rerouted.
Make sure to consult with your local Cypher representative before attempting your first Dust Stop application. You’ll receive information on optimal application rates and procedures to ensure a successful result.
