SOILOC – MQ™

LIQUID DUST SUPPRESSANT FOR MINES & QUARRIES (pm-10)


1.0 Material Description: Polymer:

SOILOC-MQ is an economical, liquid blend of acrylic resins. It is supplied in a milky white, highly concentrated form to be diluted with water prior to use. Dries clear. Environmentally safe. Non-corrosive to metal. Meets all requirements for non-asphaltic emulsions.

2.0 Intended Use:
SOILOC-MQ is intended to be used on mine & quarry sites. It is designed to be sprayed over disturbed soil, haul roads, sand, coal, coke, ore, lime, slag, ash & other fine powders. When dried the material forms a crusty seal reducing airborne dust (PM-10) and erosion. It can be applied with standard hydraulic equipment including hydro-sprayers & water trucks.

3.0 HAUL ROAD DUST CONTROL:

Application Method A:
(Regular watering using SOILOC-MQ concentrate as additive):
In some cases surface watering is still the best method to control dust. When repeated waterings are planned SOILOC-MQ can be applied as an additive. To water. Mix 1 gal concentrate with 500 gal water and apply at .75 gal / s.y. With repeated applications the additive will build up. This is an economical way to immediately slow evaporation, improve penetration and over time create a highly stabilized surface.
Application Method B: (Mixing & rolling):

  • Grade surface for positive drainage. Loosen to 1″-4″ of surface material to improve penetration.
  • Mix 1 gal concentrate with 20 gal water and apply at .75 gal/s.y.
  • Roll to increase penetration and compaction.
  • Apply second coat: Mix 1 gal concentrate with 15 gal water and apply at .50 gal/s.y.
  • Roll again.
  • Subsequent maintenance applications can be applied following “Application Method A” above.
