Suppressing dust when sealing dirt roads

Sealing dirt roads goes hand in hand with a massive challenge for professionals in the built environment, namely dust suppressant. Chryso Southern Africa has launched a new range of locally developed dust suppressants that will ideally complement and expand the wide range of dosing products and equipment already supplied by the company locally.

The eco-friendly, UV-resistant and VOC-free Eco Dust range will be particularly welcomed by mines and quarries that have to comply with increasingly stringent health, safety and environmental regulations all over Africa, says Michelle Fick, Chryso Southern Africa Group Executive Relationship and Project Manager.

“Because of the long-lasting effect of the Eco Dust range, the fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions of water tankers spraying the dirt roads will be drastically lowered. It is easy to apply in prescribed diluted form, with any water tanker fitted with a rear-mounted liquid distribution bar, and the roads can be used immediately after being sealed,” says Michelle.

The new range consists of four products, namely Chryso Eco Dust 100, which is an emulsified road surface lubricant with particles that bind together to form a dust-suppressing film; Chryso Eco Dust 200, a vinyl acetate emulsion surface sealer that can be used on its own on non-maintained roads or for longer service on maintained roads, as a second application following pre-sealing with Chryso Eco Dust Primer. Chryso Eco Dust Oil is an emulsified surface lubricant ideal for users with a regular maintenance programme; and Chryso Dust Primer, is a light brown surface primer, ideally used in conjunction with Chryso Eco Dust 200.

“The Chryso Eco Dust range offers low cost of application and reduced maintenance costs when compared to paved or tarred roads. These are major benefits at a time when many industries, especially mining and agriculture, are experiencing difficult times,” concludes Michelle.
