DUST CONTROL

Dust caused by wind born erosion and human activity can travel several miles from its origin. It adversely effects potentially large areas and can cause severe disruptions on a work site. Additionally, dust pollution raises concerns of the air quality in the communities and the environment that surrounds them.

NaturesOwn® Knockout is a revolutionary product for use as a road dust suppressant and a gravel road stabilizer. Common dust suppressants such as magnesium chloride and calcium chloride have been used to combat dust in the road construction and mining industries for decades. Over time, flora and fauna that are in the vicinity of an application of such products are negatively affected by the run off or overspray of the material. A study by Colorado State University found that “high concentrations of MgCl2 ions in the soil may be toxic or change water relationships such that the plant cannot easily accumulate water and nutrients. Once inside the plant, chloride moves through the water-conducting system and accumulates at the margins of leaves or needles, where dieback occurs first. Leaves are weakened or killed, which can lead to the death of the tree.” (B.A. Goodrich and W.R. Jacobi) NaturesOwn® Knockout is naturally derived and is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic formula that has no negative affects to the environment.

An application of NaturesOwn® Knockout is effective immediately following application. The ease of application provides instant savings in water, labor, and wear and tear on application equipment. An additional benefit is the ability to use the treated road directly after application. There is no need to wait for penetration or fret having damage to vehicles that might come into contact with the product.

Product penetration

An application of NaturesOwn® Knockout is effective immediately following application. The ease of application provides instant savings in water, labor, and wear and tear on application equipment. An additional benefit is the ability to use the treated road directly after application. There is no need to wait for penetration or fret having damage to vehicles that might come into contact with the product.

Longevity

The typical application will remain effective for approximately 2 to 3 weeks if there is heavy traffic and for approximately 3 to 4 months for lighter traffic. The application provides instant results to the treated area and doesn’t cause the soil to harden or crust.

NaturesOwn® Knockout is a dispersible suppressant that is easy to mix and apply. Knockout mixes easily with the sloshing movement of a water truck. Mix the fatty acids into the water tank and drive to the application site to apply.
Simply follow the dilution formulas below depending on the desired protection that you are looking for. We recommend that Knockout be added to the tank of the water truck before the water or allow the solution to thoroughly mix before applying. Mixing does not, however, require rigorous agitation. For a more robust application; use at a higher concentration.

Non Corrosive

The makeup of NaturesOwn® Knockout is easy to use, and will not cause corrosion to common tankers and spray bars during application or to vehicles accessing treated roads.
