DUST CONTROL SOLUTIONS
Dust from mining operations can increase maintenance costs, decrease productivity, threaten the health of workers and adversely affect community support and social license to operate. By controlling dust, miners and transport & port loading operators can better meet environmental, regulatory and community requirements and reduce product losses
Dow provides a range of solutions to help customers tackle their dust emission challenges while minimizing water usage and application frequency. From dust suppressants to soil stabilization solutions, we can help you control dust emission from haulage roads, tailings impoundments, stock piles, rail cars and other exposed surfaces.

Dow offers a range of film-forming and non-film-forming polymeric emulsions for dust control. For stock piles & rail cars: Film-forming polymeric emulsions provide mechanical control on the stock-pile surface and a long-lasting and sustainable solution (rain water and UV resistance) for a broad range of minerals. For haulage roads: Non-film-forming acrylic polymer formulations suitable for water-based treatment of road surfaces. Controls dust through increased wettability & water retention and binding effect for soil particles.
