kapture launch

TBC Distribution is pleased to announce the launch of Kapture – our new dust suppression solution designed for the mining industry and effective across all sectors.

The official launch took place on Thursday 10 October with an educational seminar at The Fraternity Club, followed by an ‘After Party’ overlooking the stunning Wollongong harbour at Levelone Harbourfront. Guests heard from Chief Chemist Gary Spradbrow and were able to have all their technical questions answered.

To catch you up, here’s a rundown on Kapture.

What is Kapture?

Kapture is a highly concentrated solid block used as an additive to water for the suppression of dust. It can be applied using existing site water trucks, tankers or sprinklers, as well as injected into water supply lines.

Made from a blend of water retaining agents and humectants, Kapture works by breaking the water’s surface tension causing it to uniformly spread over a larger surface area. It draws and holds moisture in to stop it from evaporating in order to capture an increased amount of dust before becoming airborne. It can be applied to all types of clay, coal and siliceous matter.


Field results have proven double the ground coverage compared to liquid alternatives*


How many products are in the range?

There are currently three products in the range:

DS600 dust suppression

DS600 – Dust Suppression Block

Offers a slow release ideal for use in water supply lines.

DS500-QD dust suppression

A fourth product designed for overburden drill systems is coming very soon. It not only suppresses dust but enhances the drilling process by assisting in collaring of the hole in softer ground, as well as reducing fall back from drill cutting.

“Such a well-polished launch. The launch I can compare to those given by multi nationals”

– John Nordon, Area Technical Manager, H B Fuller Company
