Formulas and Applications
Please note – bespoke formulas can be blended for specific requirements, contact us for more information.
DST Road Light has been specifically designed to control dust caused by vehicular traffic. Essentially by making water “sticky” the dust particles bind together making larger/heavier briquettes or crust that will resist truck tyres and remain hard without producing any dust for several weeks. DST Road Light is a vinyl polymer and is a very efficient dust compaction and soil binding agent. With the correct dosage, it will form a high resistant and waterproof coating.
DST Road Pro is a stronger version of Dst Road Light, it is little more concentrated for the heavier used roads and sites. It has been designed for various specific applications, such as road constructions, mining operations, quarries and tracks. Its use will reduce the number of passes required in road surface treatment, bringing down the resulting treatment cost.
DST Stockpile has been developed for the control of dust released from embankments, ore stockpiles, mining operations and quarries (conveyors) and soil waterproofing. It has been developed for its film-forming, surface-coating properties. DST Stockpile essentially works by forming a protective cover over the target area without changing the constitution of the stock.
