  • Suitable for use with a variety of materials with compositions and characteristics
  • Contains non-volatile materials which attract both dust particles and water
  • Easy to apply, no specialised equipment required
  • Reduces water’s tension which causes water to spread in much smaller droplets
  • Roads can be trafficked immediately
  • Environmentally friendly, non-toxic and non-hazardous
  • Dilute the required HRDC with the water in the water bowser
  • Circulate the water or agitate prior to spraying
