GRT8000 dust control solution is a versatile and sustainable modified polymer, engineered to combat the problem of fugitive dust and soil stabilization on unpaved roads. It has a unique combination of additives which gives it a dark colour but improves its UV resistance.
Fugitive dust caused by traffic on unpaved surfaces has negative consequences for the environment, the community and the road itself. Ignoring or under-treading the issue can lead to road deterioration, sediment run-off, health issues, environmental damage, plus impact on the viability of surrounding cropping and pastural land.
Unsealed roads such as mining haul roads and hardstands (lay down yards) are usually under continual maintenance with watering and grading teams working all day everyday – for what? Watering and grading roads is a band-aid solution to stop dust that incrementally is destroying the integrity of the road. When it rains, haul roads fail and become impassable – and need to be rehabilitated before production can recommence. Ultimately, given the high price of diesel, increased labour costs and equipment maintenance, it’s a loosing battle.
Polymer sealing with GRT8000 dust control solution works differently. After initial works, maintenance applications are required once every 12 to 24 weeks depending on traffic loading. With each application, an accumulating number of silty dust particles are bound together, preventing them from becoming airborne. Due to the cumulative, residual nature of the product, the rate of application of GRT8000 reduces over time, becoming more economical each year. Simply sprayed from a water truck, the results are:
- Elimination of dust and its impacts (visibility, health, surrounding areas)
- Stable, waterproof surface preventing corrugation and potholing
- Improved skid resistance and decreased rolling resistance
- Costs savings of 30-40% due to removal of daily watering and grading, less wear and tear on vehicles, improved haul times, elimination of downtime during and after wet weather (cost savings independently verified by Deloitte).
Used by the military, industrial, private and mining sectors, GRT8000 dust control solution provides effective dust mitigation on a range of unpaved surfaces, including:
- Remote installations and accesses
- Low and High Volume Roads
- Car and Truck Parks
- Railroad Yards
- Hardstands/Lay Down Yards
- Construction or Military Camps
Diluted with water, GRT8000 dust control solution is distributed quickly and simply using a water truck. Designed for ease of use, the application needs limited lane closures and little pre-watering, thereby saving on water and on-going maintenance costs.
GRT8000 Dust Control Solution is manufactured to ISO9001 standards and has been comprehensively reviewed by leading independent testing institutions and major companies worldwide.CONTACT US FOR A QUOTE
Polymer Modified Cement
Polymer modified cement created by Global Road Technology is a combination of cementitious binder, GRT polymer, water and granular material. These components are mixed together and compacted in the early stages of the hydration process to form a pavement layer that is subsequently cured.
Effective soil binder & erosion control
GRT-ENVIRO SOIL BINDER & EROSION CONTROL is an organic soil conditioner based on a water-soluble polymer. This product can be added to irrigation water to reduce soil erosion by agglomerating fine particles that otherwise would be carried away by surface water runoff.
Counter Terrorism Landmine Clearance Technology
An expeditionary product with unique morphology, GRT1000 aids in the detection of sub-surface threats, such as landmines. Invisible to the naked eye, this patented state-of-the-art solution warns armed forces when roads and tracks have been disturbed.
Aerial Deployed Dust Control
An aerial deployed, military grade dust control solution, GRT2000 establishes dust free temporary landing zones in the operational theatre within minutes. Not relying on ground based combat engineers, it can be delivered almost anywhere, mitigating brownouts and improving safety.
Self Healing Runways
A novel biomimetic formulation, GRT3000 is designed to facilitate rapid construction of tactical and emergency self-healing runways in the operational theatre. Providing substantial increases in compression as well as tensile strength, GRT3000 runways are ultrathin and failure resilience.
(Black) Dust Control Polymer Sealant
Engineered to combat the problems of fugitive dust and soil stabilization on unpaved roads, GRT8000 compounds with each application to bind dust particles together. Preventing dust from becoming airborne, overtime applications can be reduced and eventually stopped.
(Black) Polymer Soil Stabilization
GRT’s most advanced polymer soil stabilization product, GRT9000 is engineered for use in the construction of high-quality and cost-effective pavements. Mitigating surface degradation, GRT9000 bonds soil or pavement particles together, improving compressive strengths, high tensile resilience and water impermeability.
