RDC FAQ

RDC Road Dust control

What type of Industries use RDC?


RDC is used where there is airborne dust causing issues within the workplace or for road users. •Council Roads-dusty gravel roads •Highway Construction Haul Roads •Forestry Roads •Mine Roads •Commercial Yard •Agricultural applications •Private ratepayers




What is the Recommended Dose Rate


Initial recommended application rate of 2ltrs per sqm for the initial treatment with a top up of 1ltr per sqm if required (rising dust or extreme weather).




How do I apply RDC and what equipment do I require?


If the pavement is bone dry, then you will need to pre-wet it with water.Use a water cart or a spray unit capable of delivering a uniform spray to the surface of the pavement. Complete a test area spraying to calibrate the flow and speed of vehicle to get the specified amount of product onto the pavement. Pre-shaping the road and using a roller on site to follow behind the water cart will give your treatment longevity and a smooth finish but is not generally required.




Can RDC be used as a water saver?


Yes, RDC can be dilutedat 10:1(10%) to lower the frequency of watering for dust control, saving precious resources.




What type of soil can I use RDC on?


RDC can be used on most soil types that have a wellgraded grain size distribution with fines. RDC isnot compatible with plastic materials.




What affects the performance of RDC?


Prior to application no heavy rain should be forecast within 24 hours to give the product time to cure into the pavement.

HSC FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What type of Industries use PHF?


PHF Coldmix Pothole Fill the ideal permanent pothole material for your road repair/maintenance requirements:

  • Potholes in asphalt or concrete
  • Reinstating utility cuts
  • Repairs to deteriorating asphalt
  • Speed humps
  • Ramps
  • Water channels
  • Edge breaks




What are the main benefits when using PHF?


PHF is the ideal product for repairing or maintaining potholes in highways, driveways and carparks. Being an asphalt product modified with polymers it remains strong and flexible yet easy to use - excellent qualities for making long term repairs to potholes. Results have shown that PHF is as good as if not better than Hotmix for fixing potholes in the road surface and has proven experience in both extremely hot and cold climates and all weather conditions.

Making a quality Coldmix Pothole Fill that provides a permanent repair it is not difficult or complicated. Just follow the formula, use quality locally sourced aggregate and Gravel Lock’s PHF Binder to make your own excellent quality PHF at an equitable price in your own country saving the need to ship bulky stone creating huge savings in carbon emissions.




How do I make my own PHF?


It is not difficult or complicated to make quality PHF Coldmix Pothole Fill, just follow the correct formula, use quality locally sourced aggregate and Gravel Lock’s PHF Binder. Gravel Lock can supply either the concentrated raw liquid to make your own PHF Coldmix Pothole Fill or, supply PHF Pre Mix, ready for you or your contractors to install. If you purchase the raw binder, we will supply manufacturing documentation on how to mix the concentrate to produce a high quality Coldmix Pothole Fill.




Can I make large quantities and store PHF?


Bulk product can be manufactured and what is not used can be stockpiled, covered and used up to 3 months later. Sealed bags have a shelf life of 12 months if stored in a cool environment.




How is PHF Supplied?


We can supply either PHF premixed or as a raw binder.

Raw product is sold in 80ltr and 200ltr drums or shipped in bulk FCL's for minimizing logistics and costs.

The product can also be sold premixed in 20kg or 1 ton sling bags.




Where can I buy PHF from?


You can purchase PHF ex works Auckland and Korea.




How much PHF do I need to fill a pothole?


One 20kg bag of PHF Coldmix pothole fill can fill a pothole 1/2mtr X 1/2mtr by 30ml deep.




How do I apply PHF and what equipment do I require?


Installing the products requires no specialised equipment. The range has been developed so that it can simply be installed using a spade a car wheel or a compactor for larger potholes. The range is extremely easy and versatile in the way it is installed.

PHF can be installed in three simple steps:

  • Clean the pothole of any debris and remove any loose pieces around the hole. If possible give yourself a vertical edge around the hole for the PHF to butt up against as it lengthens the life of the repair.
  • Fill the hole with PHF, making it slightly higher than the pavement, this is called crowning. Depending on the size of the repair give yourself a 5-10mm crown as this counteracts the subsidence caused by compacting.
  • Compact the PHF. A compactor is recommended for larger holes whilst driving back and forth with a vehicle can be used on smaller holes very effectively.




What affects the performance of PHF?


PHF can be installed in all weather conditions even when potholes are filled with water and, once applied, PHF is not susceptible to weathering. PHF does not cure chemically, it is self-compacting and cures by ambient atmosphere making temperature and weather being the deciding factors in cure time. The colder the weather the longer PHF takes to cure.




How should I clean my equipment?


For uncured cleaning, rinse equipment immediately with water.




Payment Terms


Gravel Lock’s payment terms are prepaid or, if approved, on account.




Does PHF have environmental approval?


Hazardous Identifications: Emergency Overview Product is classified as non-hazardous and non-regulated according to Schedules 1 to 6 of the Hazardous Substances (Minimum Degrees of Hazard) Regulations 2001 of the HSNO Act 1996.
