Abstract

Three types of dust suppressants used in the surface mining industry to control fugitive particulate emissions from unpaved roads were tested for cohesive strength and resistance to reduced effectiveness by large water additions. Each product tested varied in cohesive strength with a range of 34-300 kPa (5-44 psi). Strength depends on aggregate moisture content and the means by which the sample is dried. Large water additions to the road surface after initial suppressant application can produce undesirable results.
