FDC- 1000 – Flying Dust Control coating

Breakthrough solution to airborne dust


The problem:

Airborne dust is a serious and rapidly growing concern across a wide variety of industries and industrial activities.

Dust released by mining, construction, demolition, farming, transportation, quarrying, waste/water treatment, and materials-processing (to name just a few) has severe effects on public health, on vehicles and equipment, and of course on the environment.

Airborne dust may carry multiple toxins, carcinogens, and caustic chemicals.  Health effects range from skin and eyes irritation through to respiratory diseases and even cancers.  Effects on equipment include corrosion, component failure and downtime.  And environmental effects such as wildlife and fish disease, water and land pollution, and reduced light and visibility have been documented tens or even hundreds of kilometers from the dust source.

And the above picture is only getting worse.  Overall volumes of dust are increasing, and new processing technologies are making the dust particles themselves finer, lighter, more dangerous and difficult to control.

Until recently, regulators tended to view airborne dust as something of a “necessary evil” of industrial development and codes were generally lenient.

That is changing fast. Growing awareness of the serious impact of airborne dust leads to far more stringent dust abatement regulations in many jurisdictions.

Industrial operators increasingly find themselves struggling to comply.

Achieving this goal will contribute to the reduction of local and global air pollution, and in addition, help the owners to get facilitate international licensing and recognition for LCA or EPD.

The solution:

Today’s dust control solutions are problematic.  They include mechanical filters, vacuums, blowers, and water-sprayers that capture or divert dust, electromagnetic technologies that polarize and clump dust, and trees, screens and other physical barriers designed to block dust.  But all of these try to reduce dust that has already been released.  They treat the “symptoms” and not the “disease”.


By contrast, NANO Z’s FDC-1000 treats the disease at source.  FDC–1000 prevents dust from ever becoming airborne in the first place!

FDC-1000 is a biodegradable,environmentally friendly water-based compound. Spray it on any material and the surface becomes “Undustable”. Operating at the molecular level as a very thin coating layer, FDC-1000 binds the top layer and “hardens” it such that no matter how much wind erosion it is exposed to, it will not turn into airborne dust.

Uniquely, FDC-1000 has no other effect on the material.  It is completely transparent, odor-free, safe, and does not change the material’s properties in any way.

FDC-1000 is ideal for any dust-generating application: mines, quarries, sludge ponds, mines tailing, bulk-processing facilities of all kinds, construction and demolition sites, farms and food-processing facilities, gypsum,coal, phosphate, sand, limestone, cement, etc. facilities, bulk transportation, roads, soil reclamation, marine environments, and much more.

How to use:

FDC-1000 is mixed with clean water (ratio of 1:3 – 1:5 depending on substrate type)

Means of application:

Standard high-quality manual sprayer, electric or mechanical air sprayer, water spraying/ misting machines or tankers, spray planes
