Description: Contract Report
Abstract: This report covers the work performed in evaluating sodium silicate and sulphur based formulations for their use as dust palliatives. The results of the experimental work are herein presented. The conclusions drawn for each of these formulations are as follows: (1.) Sodium silicate based formulations can be used as an efficient, inexpensive dust palliative when the silicate is sufficiently insolubilized to withstand normal weathering conditions, and a waterproof latex barrier is used to cover the base sodium silicate coating. (2.) The sulphur based coatings have some very attractive features such as low cost and availability of materials, but the sulphur based coatings were not pursued to an end result because of the complications involved in applying the hot molten sulphur coatings.
