Dust suppressant

What is Dust suppressant

Dust suppressant is environmentally friendly magnesium brine solution, that acts as a stabiliser and binds the road surface, helping to minimise dust.

The solution is produced in Australia in accordance with accredited manufacturing practices and under a strict quality system, solar evaporation methods are completely natural using the sun and wind.

The dust suppressant product is estimated to be effective for a period of 8 weeks, this is dependent on weather and other road conditions.

What roads do we treat?

We treat more than 200km of unsealed roads each year. The dust suppressant treatment is applied in conjunction with programmed maintenance grading of roads, which occurs from November through to January. Only one treatment is applied per year for the roads listed. 

Please Note: We do not treat privately owned roads, driveways accesses or carriageway easements.
