Multi-use additive delivers better results

Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST) is set to revolutionise dust suppression treatments internationally with its new Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic micro-polymer additive.

It delivers faster and more cost-effective results, functioning as a dust suppressant, water extender, compaction aid and veneering agent.

Incorporating RST's latest advanced micro-polymer technology, this new solution requires fewer additives and has three times more coverage than its predecessor, Heavy Water Dynamic, which has now been super boosted.

RST's latest cutting-edge micropolymer technology allows the application rate of the Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic solution to be adjusted as necessary, compacting unsealed road surfaces, sealing open source emissions and stock piles and minimising sediment loss from open areas and roads, while further reducing water evaporation.

Successfully reducing water usage by about half per square metre, the innovative solution is suitable for use in the mining and construction sectors.

To effectively enhance the application of the multi-purpose solution, RST has specifically developed the Dose Buddy, a highly effective dosing pump that mounts on the back of water carts.

The pump greatly simplifies the application process as it starts manually and turns off automatically, ensuring doses are accurately applied every time.

RST Operation and Techinical Director David Handel said following extensive research and listening to clients' needs, it was important for the company to develop the application machinery to complement its advanced Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic product for maximum results.

"The Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic solution and Dose Buddy are leading edge products that will revolutionise dust suppression treatments internationally because they simplify the whole process," Mr Handel said.

"It requires less additive and has greater coverage, which means it is highly cost-effective and greatly reduces the amount of time spent on each treatment.

"Not only does it save our clients time and money, but it also promotes an environmentally sustainable future with reduced additive requirements and the solution itself being environmentally safe.

"By utilising the Dose Buddy, the application process is simplified further because it minimises the chance of dosage errors and waste. It's safer because it sits on the back of the water cart and its accessibility reduces preparation time, adding to the overall cost-effectiveness of the process."

The Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic solution is part of RST's recently released micro-polymer suite of upgraded products, delivering close to 90 per cent lower dosage requirements, resulting in ultra-low application concentrations and greater results.

Among the suite of upgraded products is the Avenger Coal and Avenger Hard Rock haul road dust suppressants, Titan liquid polymer road stabiliser and RT4 and RT5 Superskin crusting agents for rail wagon veneering, stockpile and exposed ground applications.

RST's Generation 2 micro-polymer range is ready to be implemented globally for dust control, soil stabilisation and erosion control and water management programs including sediment treatment, and features colour coding as a product identification tool.
