Civil Construction

Tailored solutions for dust, roads, soil and water management

Dust-A-Side Australia offers cutting-edge products for soil and road stabilisation, dust and erosion control, dust suppression systems as well as site water management for civil and land development construction. Our solutions are focused on making projects more efficient, sustainable, and cost effective. We have a track record of successfully applying our solutions in both public and private infrastructure projects, providing exceptional strength and durability while remaining flexible.

Key challenges facing civil construction projects

Civil construction and land development projects often face significant challenges related to dust control, including environmental impacts, regulatory compliance, and health and safety concerns. Dust-A-Side Australia provides comprehensive products, solutions, and eco-friendly dust management practices tailored to effectively address these issues across various applications, including:

  • Residential and Commercial Development
  • Land Development
  • Raw Land Management
  • Construction Sites and House Building
  • Building Projects
  • Landscaping Architecture
  • Environmental Impact Assessment
  • Subdivision of Land and Community Development
  • Road Construction
  • Bypass Roads
  • Civil Construction Projects
  • Rail and Main Roads
  • Private and Public Infrastructure Projects

Effective dust control is crucial for public works projects to maintain a clean and safe work environment, meet government regulations, and fulfil community expectations. Our expertise in developing effective dust mitigation strategies combines preventive measures, environmentally friendly products, water waste management, and ongoing maintenance.

Our targeted solutions for civil construction

Dust control

Our dust control solutions include a range of products and systems tailored for large-scale projects. These solutions effectively suppress dust, improve air quality, and reduce environmental impact. We offer traditional products like bitumen emulsion as well as sustainable sealing products that are environmentally friendly and provide long-lasting solutions for roads and water storage facilities. We are able to customise dust control solutions to meet the specific needs and challenges of each project, ensuring optimal results.

Water management

Our sustainable and cost-effective solutions are used for water management in civil construction sites, particularly in dust control applications. When high volumes of untreated water is sprayed daily to suppress dust on roads and materials, the costs can quickly escalate.

Untreated water is also ineffective in suppressing dust in high temperatures, requiring continuous watering and resulting in additional labour and/or fuel costs.

Dust-A-Side’s range of binder products – including HydroTac and AquaTarp –  are designed to enhance the effectiveness of water and offer a more sustainable and cost-effective approach to dust control in construction sites, reducing expenses and improving operational efficiency. This approach not only saves costs but also enhances value creation by reallocating resources to more productive activities, ultimately benefiting the construction industry.

Additionally, our dust control solutions help clients meet and exceed regulatory requirements related to dust control, reducing environmental impact and promoting sustainability.

Road stabilisation

Dust-A-Side’s road management solutions have been successfully applied in both public and private infrastructure projects, providing exceptional strength and durability while remaining flexible. Our stabilisation solutions enhance natural materials, upgrade existing roads, and strengthen newly quarried materials.

Our flagship bitumen emulsion product, DAS Product , can be applied onto the surface of access roads via a series of light dilutions. The repeated application of the product and penetration properties of the formulation will lead to progressive build up of a bitumen sealed surface that binds surface material together and prevents water ingress.

Erosion control

Erosion control is another critical environmental consideration on large sites, often involving costly measures such as sediment basins or less efficient techniques like progressive clearing.

Dust-A-Side Australia offers cost-effective polymer dust control and erosion management solutions that can be easily applied to manage broadscale cleared areas, exposed surfaces, stockpiles, batter slopes, and drainage paths.

Fog Cannons

Fog cannons are portable dust suppression units which disperse a fine mist over large distances and areas.

DAS Product

The ultimate bitumen emulsion product for dust control and road stabilisation.


An organic lignosulphonate-based road binder offering superior dust control results.


AquaTarp is a spray-on, solvent-free water and surfactant-based emulsion of latex polymer.

Key benefits

  • Operational dust reductions of 90%
  • Water savings of 95%
  • Safer roads due to improved visibility and less water
  • Operational cost savings and efficiencies due to the reduced need for water carts, graders, and so on.
  • Improved road quality
  • Reduced road maintenance costs
  • Increased productivity (up to 30% reduction in rolling resistance)
  • Reduction in fuel consumption of 3%
  • Faster wet weather recovery
