Dust pollutes the air and contaminates land, water, and communities. Investing in dust suppression chemicals can solve your dust control challenges and protect your project from health and safety concerns. Consider these 5 points when exploring the benefits of dust suppression chemicals.
1. What Is the Location Of Your Project?
The weather and climate of your building project are essential factors to consider when selecting a dust suppression product. For example, dry climates may require more dust suppression chemicals due to a lack of moisture in the air. You should research what dust suppression chemicals have been effective in your region before selecting a product.
2. Which Category of Chemical Is Best For You
Chemical dust control has been used for decades to help suppress dust. When choosing a dust suppression chemical, investigate all the different dust control methods available. Dust suppression chemicals fall into 4 major categories.
3. The Environmental Impact Of A Product
It’s best to select dust suppression chemicals that are considered environmentally friendly. After application, dust control products may migrate off the roadway and enter surrounding water bodies. Apply dust suppressants that are ecologically friendly and apply them properly not to contaminate water bodies, including surface and groundwater.
4. Regulatory Compliance
EPA, OSHA, and MSHA all publish rules and set strict guidelines for dust control. Regional regulations may vary and require your company to choose one dust suppression chemical product over another to comply. Review all pertinent laws related to dust hazards before selecting a dust suppression product.
5. Longevity Of Each Product
Dust suppressants vary in how long they provide dust control. For example, chlorides are a popular dust control compound. However, chlorides are a temporary dust control solution. Chloride application only lasts a few months. Synthetic polymer products, such as Envirotac, are considered long-lasting. One application of Envirotac can last up to 2 years. Reapplication of dust control chemicals can be costly, so it’s important to evaluate the effectiveness of the dust control chemicals.
