EDC™ Dust Control is the only synthetic dust control product that  where the viscosity to improve the performance on a wide variety of soils.

 

EDC™ is a pure synthetic organic fluid that is applied on soils to control fugitive dust. It does not require diluting with water and is supplied “ready to use”. EDC™ is completely environmentally friendly is non-toxic, non-hazardous, and safe for use around vegetation and animals. EDC™ can be re-worked in the soil and still maintain its dust fighting capabilities. One simple application will last months.

  • Proprietary Formulation
  • Can be Custom Formulated
  • Will Last Six to Twelve Months
  • Works Longer Than Anything Else Available

 

Dust Control is Effective For:

  • Dirt/Unpaved Roads
  • Active Construction Projects
  • Mining roads and underground mining
  • Open Fields

 

 

Dust Control Issues

 

What Is Airborne Dust?
Particles less than 10 micrometers in diameter (PM10) that are light enough to be carried in the wind.

 

Where Does Airborne Dust Come From?
Dust particles are generally emitted from sources such as vehicles traveling on unpaved roads, Materials handling, crushing and grinding operations, and windblown dust.

 

Why Should I Care About Airborne Dust?
When breathed, particles can accumulate in the respiratory system and are associated with numerous health effects. In addition to health problems, Dust is the major cause of reduced visibility in many parts of the U.S. and can also can impact vegetation and ecosystems.

 

How Is Fugitive Dust Controlled?
Dust Abatement is commonly performed using water or chemical treatments. In some parts of the world, water is not always available or is in short supply. Some chemical treatments are ineffective or have been banned because of environmental concerns

 

What Is EDC™?
EDC™ is a high quality proprietary blend of Synthetic Organic blends formulated specifically to control dust in residential, commercial and industrial applications

 

How Long Does EDC™ Last?
EDC™ can be effective for six months or more with just One application. It is UV resistant to prevent deterioration and does not break down when wet .

 

How Much Does EDC Cost?
EDC™ has a Low cost per square foot / M2 and is very economical when compared to any other solution available for controlling your dust problems.

 

 How is EDC used?

·         topically applied with common spray equipment.

·         shipped ready to use -no mixing

·         economical application rates and continued usage results in lower application rates.

·         available in smaller quantities as well as bulk deliveries

LDC PLUS 12™ Overview

 

Liquid Dust Control LDC +12™ is an acrylic blended polymeric product that is diluted with available water up to 10:1, provides long term dust control in mines, dirt roads, agriculture or farm roads, stockpiled material, or haul roads. LDC +12™ has been successfully used for years.

 

We recently discovered a remarkable new wetting agent that allows LDC +12™ to penetrate in dry soils up to 12 cm about 6" We call this product Durawet™. Farm roads: our dust prevention has been proven increase the crop production by as much as 30%, simply by letting the leaves on the plants get full access to the sun and rain without dust's coating effects. It should be noted that after repeated applications a hardened surface will appear.

 

 LDC+12™ is an environmentally safe, low cost chemical solution which is mixed with water and applied to soil with results of up to 100% dust control and elimination of problems associated with soil and wind erosion. As a barrier against moisture, LDC+12™ is so effective that when used in sufficient concentration, it forms an impenetrable liner. This liner can be used for a pond or chemical pit to prevent seepage into the ground water supply. When sprayed on embankments, LDC+12™ will control erosion due from rain and wind. Because of it's chemical resistance, to toxic wastes, it has been found to be excellent for use in landfills, brown fields and retention ponds.

 

For extra UV protection we add a superior UV filter that increases the longevity at least 2 fold over the natural ability of our proprietary blended acrylic compounds. Typically a dust control agent will only penetrate about ½".
