HydroTac is a versatile dust control choice

An extremely effective biodegradable binder specially formulated to bind dust emitting particles.

HydroTac is a hygroscopic crusting agent, used to control fugitive dust on secondary haul roads, storage piles and materials handling applications. It reduces 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 concentration.

Due to its versatility, HydroTac can be used as a simple spray-on treatment which is absorbed into the surface material. For longer-lasting results on heavy trafficked areas, it can be stabilized into the wearing course layer.

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