Dust Mitigation


DS-09 Roadway Dust Suppressant

GelTrak DS-09 is an environmentally responsible solution designed to reduce dust on dirt roads, parking lots, racetracks, equestrian facilities and other dirt surfaces. GelTrak ultilizes hygroscopic humectant technology to keep soils nominally damp for extended periods between watering or rainfall.  

  • Benefits

    • Minimizes airborne dust
    • Reduces watering requirements for dust control
    • Reduces dust coatings on nearby surfaces
    • Improves air quality near mining and construction sites
    • Increases visibility at sporting events on dirt fields and tracks

Where to use

  • icon Long Description

    GelTrak is an environmentally responsible dust suppressant used to reduce hazardous and Nuisance dust from unpaved roadways, mining and construction sites, dirt race tracks, equestrian facilities, arenas, parking lots, sports infields and other dirt surfaces.

    GelTrak is formulated using a proprietary blend of hygroscopic humectant components combined with plant-based binders. The hygroscopic humectant components utilize sub-surface moisture and relative humidity to keep soils nominally damp for extended periods, while the plant-based binders help adhere dust fines to larger particles. In combination these synergistic components significantly reduce the total amount of water required to control dust. By using GelTrak, roadway and dirt surface watering requirements may be reduced by as much as 50% or more.

    GelTrak is biodegradable. Each application remains effective for up to 3 months depending on rainfall and traffic. Results are amplified with each subsequent application.

    • Hazardous dust from mining and manufacturing facilities
    • Dust clouds and coatings from construction and demolition sites
    • Nuisance dust during sporting events

  • icon Application Instructions

    GelTrak is a concentrated formula and must be diluted prior to application. Dilution rates and application volumes may be varied to compensate for local conditions as well as the degree and term of required dust control.

    Single Application Rate:
    Dilute GelTrak with water at a rate of 25 to 1 (water to GelTrak). Apply diluted material evenly by watering truck over the surface to be treated at a rate of 55 gallons per 1,000 square feet (2.25 liters per square meter). Dilution rates and application volumes are adjustable according to the required depth of treatment, term of effectiveness and degree of dust mitigation. Repeat treatment as needed.

    Split Application Rate:
    For the first application, dilute GelTrak with water at a rate of 50 to 1, water to GelTrak. Apply diluted material at a rate of 55 gallons per 1,000 square feet (2.25 liters per square meter). Apply the second application in the next required watering at the same dilution and application rate.

    Re-Water treated areas when necessary for proper dust control, extending the time between watering to maximize water savings. The amount of water applied along with temperature, humidity and rainfall will affect the time between required re-watering. If dusting is not reduced significantly or if required watering becomes more frequent, small amounts of GelTrak may be added during regular waterings to further extend the time between watering and enhance the effectiveness. Reapply as needed

    For Best Results:
    For best results on compacted soils, grade, rake or harrow surface prior to application. For uniform penetration it is recommended, but not required, that surfaces be damp prior to applying GelTrak
