HydroTac

Australia’s Dust Control product of choice.

Nothing binds or suppresses dust as well as HydroTac, a specially formulated biodegradable binder used to bind surface particles together on temporary roads and sites.

HydroTac can be used as a simple spray-on treatment which is absorbed into the surface material. Or for more permanent results and heavy traffic areas, it can be established into the surface wearing course layer via a stabilisation process.

A hygroscopic crusting agent, this dust control product is used to contain fugitive dust on haul roads, storage piles and materials handling transfer points. It reduces water usage and has been shown to reduce water cart operating hours by up to 80%.

Totally organic, it has no corrosive chloride compounds and is readily biodegradable and therefore environmentally friendly.

HydroTac is conveniently delivered in a concentrated liquid form ready to use; it is typically diluted in a water cart at a concentration of 1.5% right up to 20% depending on the specific requirement.

It is an extremely versatile product that is easy to handle and apply without any specialised equipment required.

Best of all, treated areas are immediately trafficable after application, making it the product of choice in a wide range of industries and operating environments.

Environmental & Cost Benefits:

  • Operational dust reductions
  • Water savings of up to 80%
  • Safer roads due to improved visibility.
  • Operational cost savings and efficiencies due to a reduction in water cart operating hours of up to 75% and a reduction in road maintenance
  • Reduced need for graders, other road maintenance equipment and regular replenishment of surface wearing course material
  • Safer haulage conditions due to the reduced likelihood of a vehicle losing control as a result of over-watering
