HydroTac is a versatile dust control choice

HydroTac is a solution of lignosulphonate and acts as a hygroscopic crusting agent. It has been specifically formulated to control fugitive dust on haul roads, access roads, hardstand areas and other exposed surfaces. It can also be applied on materials that are in transit, being transferred on long-range conveyors or in stockpiles, to bind fine dust

For longer lasting results, the product can be mixed through in-situ material to provide an improved binding/stabilising affect, whilst for shorter-term applications it can just be spayed on in a diluted manner.

A key benefit of using HydroTac is that treated areas are immediately trafficable after application, making it the product of choice in a wide range of industries and operating environments.

When applied correctly, it is proven to reduce water usage and has been shown to reduce water cart operating hours by up to 70%.

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

HydroTac is conveniently delivered in a liquid form ready to use and diluted on site to the required applications concentration.
