The superior alternative to using untreated water alone for dust control

HydroWet is a concentrated polymer, specially formulated to control dust on roads and other trafficked areas.

The addition of HydroWet to water helps to reduce the surface tension of water droplets, which enhances dust control by enabling water to better penetrate and bind the road-base.

Product Overview

HydroWet keeps road surfaces moist for longer compared with water alone. It also has a cumulative effect in suppressing dust on roads through the enhanced binding and compaction of the road-base material. It therefore saves on water usage and water cart operating costs by up to 50%. This makes it a far superior dust control solution than compared to when water only is used.

How does HydroWet work?

HydroWet is delivered in a concentrated liquid form ready to use. It is typically diluted at concentration of 300ppm through to 1000ppm, depending on the specific requirement.

It can be used on temporary roads or materials handling transfer points to improve the wetting of exposed surfaces and material; therefore enhancing the effectiveness of water as a dust suppressant and extending the intervals between needing to re-water material. It can also be used as a pre-wetting agent to improve the penetration of more permanent dust suppression products.
