Dustron® - The only dust suppression chemicals you need

We have an extraordinary solution to solve fugitive dust on haul roads and stockpiles. Dustron® is a unique multi-purpose range of dust suppression chemicals that effectively combats dust.

Eco-friendly dust suppression solution

Non-toxic and eco-friendly, Dustron® dust suppression chemicals can suppress up to 95% of dust without causing damage to the environment and people’s health. Used on haul roads, Dustron® preserves and often improves the wearing layer of the road after multiple applications.

Dustron® is also good for the environment in the way that it reduces the overall water usage for dust suppression, leading to fewer trips and less fuel consumption.

The consequences of fugitive dust

An increased focus on occupational lung diseases by safety authorities around the world, even in third-world countries, puts pressure on businesses to provide effective dust control systems. 

The issue of fugitive dust on haul roads and for stockpiles is an important occupational safety issue for business operators as it presents unique challenges.

Uncontrolled high and wide clouds of dust affect visibility, damage equipment, slow down work and present a safety hazard to staff. Harmful dust particles such as silica may lead to serious occupational lung diseases such as silicosis, pneumoconiosis and even lung cancer.

The common method of spraying dust with only water often causes overwatering, which comes with its own set of problems: muddy slippery conditions, increased rate of vehicle collisions with safety berms and damaged road surface.
Many common dust suppressants diluted in water (calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, sodium, calcium lignosulphonate, etc) can result in chemicals leaching, metal corrosion, environmental or surface damage and can cause skin and lung irritation.

The Dustron® solution

Added to a water spraying system, the Dustron® chemicals lower the surface tension of the water particles, making it easier for the water and dust particles to conglomerate. As a result, dust sinks to the bottom instead of floating on top.

What makes Dustron® an obvious choice in dust suppression is the fact that it works with your current dust suppression system to increase its effectiveness, while saving you water, time and money.
