 Erosion Control Suite of Products

AN ADVANCED Erosion Control Suite of products that are cost effective, easily applied and deliver immediate results has been developed and launched by leading Australian dust, erosion and sediment control company Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST).

RST is a global market leader in developing fast, effective and environmentally friendly solutions for the mining, construction, civil and agricultural industries, and has developed the Erosion Control Suite to solve a broad range of erosion control challenges faced by operators.

RST is a member of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), a non-profit international member organisation that provides education, resource information and business opportunities for professionals in the erosion and sediment control industry.

The Erosion Control Suite is a collection of RST's high-tech, problem solving products including:

  • Flockit Liquid & Blocks (water sediment remover)
  • Hydromulch Tackifier (polymer hydromulch fixative)
  • Locktight (fertiliser leech retardant)
  • Prime X (wetting agent)
  • RT5 Superskin (medium term soil binder)
  • Sedibind (fine soil particle fixative)
  • Seed Stay & Grow (seed fixative and protectant)
  • Shamrock Green (marking dye)
  • Supersorb (super absorbent crystals)
  • Total Ground Control (long term soil binder)
  • Turboseed (hydroseeding liquid fertiliser)
  • Supernatural (powdered hydroseeding binder)
  • Infiltrator (water infiltration aid)

RST has developed the Erosion Control Suite of products to deliver operational optimisation through application in a broad range of areas and industries including gas, mining, civil and hydromulching.

In open broad acre areas RST can supply the appropriate veneer product from the Erosion Control Suite that is diluted and sprayed directly onto the treatment area by water carts or other equipment such as aeroplanes or even hovercrafts.

Erosion Control Suite products can be applied on embankments or batters as a strong binding solution to stop dust, erosion and sediment loss, which is ideal for revegetation programs where added hydromulch, seed fixation and germination is required.

Long and short term veneer treatments from the Erosion Control Suite can be applied to stockpiles via water cart, hydromulching truck or injection into the spray irrigation systems to stop dust, erosion and sediment loss.

Erosion Control Suite products can be used on projects where floccing and de-watering is required, with solutions available in liquid, granule or block form to assist in the clarification of water.

Products from the Erosion Control Suite can also be used in hydromulching, with short term binding solutions applied to the mulch solution to help minimise erosion, allowing for faster planting.

Finally, Erosion Control Suite products can be used in hydroseeding to assist in the establishment of grasses and other vegetation, which can minimise mulching costs while providing dust control and protection, allowing germination to occur.

RST operations and technical director David Handel said the innovative range of products in the Erosion Control Suite have been designed and packaged together to provide a complete solution to the broad variety of problems related to erosion, including dust control, ground stabilisation and site rehabilitation.

"RST's point of difference is that we go out into the field and work side by side with clients to really listen and identify what their unique challenges are," Mr Handel said.

"Our team of industry experts then works out which products are needed from our broad range of solutions to provide the most cost-effective and efficient plan to obtain the highest level of operational optimisation," he said.

"We can even develop new products and tailor services or total packages to manage specific situations, because every client and site and environment we deal with is different.

"We then offer ongoing on and off site training and support to all of our clients because the key to success is ensuring our recommendations are followed through with correct operational support.

"We are passionate about delivering results because there is nothing more satisfying than identifying a problem and being able to solve it, you walk away with you head up high."

RST has more than 26 years' experience specialising in total dust management, soil stabilisation and erosion, water and agricultural solutions for mine sites, haul roads, ports and land sites in Australia and overseas.

The company's head office is based at Burleigh Heads, Queensland with an additional office in Carlisle, Western Australia.

RST's international operations extend to regions including South and North America, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
