DA500 – Drill Assist Block

Developed to assist with dust suppression and reduce water while drilling.

DA500 is a highly concentrated solid block that quickly dissolves in water to not only suppress dust but enhance the drilling process. Water retaining agents reduces the volume required during drilling and binds the drill cuttings to assist in collaring of the hole aiding in reducing collar fall back.
