DUST MITIGATION NANO-POLYMER

TM
Zycofil helps preserve soil surface's integrity by mitigating dust on the ground
while maintaining natural soil appearance. The result is less natural erosion
from wind and rain and less soil pollution in waterways and populated areas.

Zycofil is an eco-friendly water dispersible nano polymer (20-50 nm) to impart


bonding to soils, sand, clay particles and stabilize the soil base. Zycofil
penetrates into the soil surface and on drying forms a clear coating retaining
treated area's natural look. It is a cost effective treatment for dust control and
improved soil strength for use in areas where rain is not a major concern.

APPLICATION
Zycofil is added to water and applied topically for binding soil surfaces. Zycofil mixes easily with water and can be applied using a many
methods from a watering can, to a low-pressure sprayer. Zycofil is applied topically and if the soil is disturbed by traffic it may take 2-4
applications to ensure that the soil in the trafficked area is thoroughly treated with Zycofil. Zycofil requires no special equipment and
minimal clean-up time with water.

Uses include, but are not limited to: BENEFITS


Dirt roads, road shoulders, unpaved paths Prevents natural erosion from wind and rain
Construction sites Less soil pollution in waterways and
Outdoor production facilities populated area

Drilling and mining sites


Hardstands and other soil areas where dust control is needed
Landing pads, parking ramps, runways, taxiways and parking aprons.
DOSAGE
Zycofil: Water Dosage Liters/m2 No. of Applications
Soil/Sand layer (<1000 ppm TDS) or up to saturation
in Liters
2.5 kgs: 100 liters 1.5 - 3 1st & 2nd
Top layer
1 kg: 100 liters 1.5 - 3 3rd & onwards

The amount of diluted solution used varies with the soil absorptive properties; the more absorptive the soil the more diluted solution is needed.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Application rates for dust control depend on the type and frequency of traffic the surface will be
subjected to.
Add Zycofil while filling the container and thoroughly mix.

DUST MITIGATION TEST


Blow air on treated and untreated surfaces and observe dust mitigation.
