“The Natural Choice” – safe, effective dust control.
What is Tembec Dust Suppressant?
- TDS is a natural product from trees made primarily of Lignin, the natural polymer that binds the trees fibre together. Millions of litres of TDS are applied every year for roadways and commercial yards to control dust, stabilize and improve the roads quality.
How safe is it?
- It is biodegradable and non-toxic to plants, animals or humans and is even used in animal feed as the primary binder. Its natural binding qualities minimize any product leaching in the soils (unlike common chlorides). TDS is non-corrosive and will not attack metals or promote rusting beyond the rate of water.
How effective is it?
- TDS is applied to well graded roads as a liquid and dries to a hard durable surface that controls dust, and increases load bearing capacity. Studies have found that “lignosulfonates outperformed all other products in terms of aggregate retention.” This results in lower grading and gravel replacement cost.
