Polychlor Omega is a dust suppressant and stabiliser specifically designed as a viable dust palliative for unsealed roads. Polychlor Omega is adhesive emulsion composed of water based polymer which bonds to soil particles.  Key benefits of Polychlor Omega include;


  • Significant increases to the CBR of materials
  • Greatly increases cohesion of materials resulting is less gravel loss
  • Significantly reduces shrink/swell in materials 
  • Remains flexible, eliminating pavement cracking
  • Can be applied at varying application rates to suit local conditions
  • UV stable
  • Low viscosity for easy spraying from tanker


Applications for Polychlor Omega includes;

  • Stabilisation of existing pavements for sealing
  • Stabilisation of high traffic unsealed roads
  • Stabilisation of sub-grades and poor soils
  • Stabilisation of embankments
  • Dust suppression of unsealed roads
  • A wide range of material types including non clay bearing materials such as crushed rock materials
  • Surface application to prevent erosion & silting


Packaging

  • 25kg bags

POLYCHLOR IS SAFE FOR TANKERS

The properties of Polychlor make it safe for water tankers.  Polychlor does not settle in tankers, nor does it set over time in the tank.  Our blending equipment ensures that it is consistently mixed.  Measurement of solution strength in a tanker demonstrated that the variation in solution concentration throughout the contents was 3%.  Polychlor isn't corrosive to metals, nor does it damage paint so it is guaranteed not to have detrimental effects on your equipment.

This pump was used to blend 1.4 tonnes of Polychlor over a short period of time.  Clearly the pump was not harmed and no product was accumulated in the impeller or seals.

Freshly mixed Polychlor solution sampled from a customer's water tanker goes straight through the 1.6mm aperture sieve of the Marsh funnel during an on-site viscosity test to determine solution concentration.

 

CBR Testing - Lachlan Valley Low Quality Soils

These photos were taken immediately after taking the cylinders off the base plates after soaking.  Note how much mud fall off the control specimen as the soil has become quite sloppy, while the treated specimen on the right hardly lost any soil to the base plate.

Control Specimen - CBR 10

Polychlor treated specimen - CBR 35 

 

Coolgardie WA.  Treatment of low strength red sandy soils with Polychlor increased the un-soaked dry CBR from 56 to 80.  Polychlor can be of assistance with materials that unravel to bulldust during dry conditions

The blending equipment for Polychlor comes in a strong reuseable shipping crate, this enables us to mobilise our equipment to any project site in Australia or New Zealand at minimal cost.
