Dust Suppression

NANO-DUST

A LITTLE goes a LONG WAY

NANO-DUST is our dust suppressant product using the latest NANO-TECHNOLOGY, designed to be used on unpaved roads to reduce dusting, ravelling and erosion. Due to the small particle size and chemical bonding of the product, only a small quantity of the liquid is required to cover a large surface area.


Helping to IMPROVE PERFORMANCE

In situations where suitable wearing course gravel materials are not readily available, NANO-DUST can be used to improve the performance of locally available materials by extending the range of acceptable material shrinkage product and grading coefficient values. This results in a wider range of materials being suitable for use as a gravel wearing course.


Our Product is ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE

Our NANO-DUST product contains no toxic chemicals and is easily diluted with water. This means that is can be safely sprayed over areas of vegetation without causing any damage to the vegetation.


Soil Erosion CONTROL

A dirt road that has been eroded away or even cracking, spliting and has holes all over it can damage expensive machinery. We can help put this erosion at bay before it gives you any more headaches.


NANO-DUST DETAILS & SPECIFICATIONS:

In situations where suitable wearing course gravel materials are not available, NANO-DUST can be used to improve the performance of locally available materials by extending the range of acceptable material shrinkage product and grading coefficient values. This results in a wider range of materials being suitable for use as a gravel wearing course.

  • Not affected by climate conditions.
  • Not water soluable.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • Less nozzle blockages.
  • Resistant to ultra violet (UV) degradation (Spray on application).
  • Very strong bonds formed with fine material (Mix in application).
  • More efficient due to particle size.
  • Saves you money.
  • Good penetration.
  • Chemical bonds.
  • Mine dumps.
  • Road and rail trucks during transit.
  • Rural roads.
  • Roads in the mining and agricultural industries.
  • Haul roads.
  • Temporary construction roads and deviantions.
SPRAY ON APPLICATION DETAILS:

Spray on application for non-traffic applications to form a transparent surface crust which is resistant to rain and wind.

Mix NANO-DUST with water by stirring/circulating for 15 - 20 mins. Then add cationic bitumen and mix/circulate for another 15 - 20 mins.

Method of Application:
Watering cans, knapsack sprayers, mobile water tankers with spray bars or with long pressure hoses for inaccessible slopes.
Dilution Rate:
1 part NANO-DUST to 50 parts cationic bitumen emulsion to 500 parts water.
Application Rate (of diluted solution):
1,0 l/sm.
Initial Treatment:
1 No. Application.
Maintenance Treatment:
Typically once a month.

NOTE 01: Ensure water is free of debris and has a PH between 6,5 and 7,5.
NOTE 02: Ensure the road surface is pre-broomed to remove loose material before applying the product.
NOTE 03: In certain situations a blend of NANO-BOND and NANO-SIL can be used to great effect where water proofing along with increased wearing course strength is required.




MIX IN APPLICATION DETAILS:

Mix in application for dust suppression for road applications to bind the finer soil particles to reduce muddy conditions in wet weather and dusty conditions when the road dries out.

Mix NANO-DUST with water by stirring/circulating for 15 - 20 mins. Then add cationic bitumen and mix/circulate for another 15 - 20 mins.

Method of Application:
Mix in application during reshaping or re-graveling using a grader, rotavator or disc plough. Particular attention should be given to shape the road to encourage surface storm water runoff. Gravel wearing course to be well compacted after reshaping.
Min. Depth of Application:
100mm.
Dilution Rate:
1 part NANO-DUST to 30 parts water (1:30).
Application Rate (of diluted solution):
To be confirmed.
Initial Treatment:
1 No. Application.
Maintenance Treatment:
As and when required during reshaping or re-graveling. Intermediate spray on maintenance applications could be applied if required.

NOTE 01: Ensure water is free of debris and has a PH between 6,5 and 7,5.
NOTE 02: Ensure the road in constructed to the correct fails.
NOTE 03: In certain situations GE-NANO can be used to great effect where water proofing along with increased wearing course strength is required.
