EROSION STOP: CANADIAN MADE, EFFECTIVE EROSION CONTROL
Erosion Stop is a 100% environmentally friendly solution that is very effective for long term dust and erosion control for tailings piles consisting of any material. After application of the emulsion to the tailings, the water evaporates and the polymer particles pack closely together to form a continuous film. Moreover, the application of Dust Stop leads to the isolation of the polymer by the removal of water. In this way, Dust Stop transforms into a flexible polymer film. The ability of Dust Stop to coalesce into a durable, strong, water resistant film allows it to encapsulate all of the dust generating material to prevent it from becoming airborne particulates. Essentially the polymers are a binding agent; they bind to all solids they come into contact with, as well as binding to the other polymers in the mix. This forms a consolidated film or barrier that locks in all the soil and dust particles, ensuring that no dust is released as a result of wind.
The film is fully non-soluble and is therefore effective for long term erosion from water and will not run off in the rain. Erosion Stop will produce a high tensile strength film that is able to penetrate even fine and dense tailings and eliminate the potential dispersion of PM 10 dust particles (and smaller) that pose the biggest threat to human health and the environment from releases caused by wind-blown dust from tailings.
Because of its unique makeup, Erosion Stop is an environmentally friendly alternative to other dust suppressants. Unlike competitive products, it does not create any toxic runoff and does not harm any nearby vegetation or wildlife, which makes it safe to use in environmentally sensitive areas. Dust control itself is also important to the environment and to the health of people and aquatic life in the area.
The materials used in Erosion Stop are specifically chosen to be non-corrosive, so it will not rust any vehicles or equipment used on treated roads, unlike other dust suppressant products.
Erosion Stop’s unique formula is designed as a seasonal dust control solution and needs less frequent treatments than alternative products. It is also effective in diverse weather conditions and will not be adversely affected by dry or wet periods.
Mountainside Earthworks and Cypher Environmental are both Canadian companies, it’s good to support local businesses. Cypher is headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where they design and manufacture all their dust control products. Mountainside Earthworks is based in Salmon Arm, BC, and is a licensed distributor for Dust Stop in the province.
