Water is commonly used to reduce dust on stockpiles, among other dust control measures. However, there are limits to using water alone:
- Some locations have limited access to water.
- Water is not a viable dust control option for some materials.
- Water usually requires frequent re-application, especially in hot, dry climates.
Chemical dust suppressants can serve as a longer-lasting solution to dust control challenges.
Our product Ground Control PolyBlend is our preferred product for stockpile dust control control. It is a non-toxic polymer emulsion that customers dilute before use based on the level of dust control required. It reduces dust on stockpiles as well as unpaved roadways, such as haul roads.
