APS 600 Series Silt Stop
Polyacrylamide Erosion Control Emulsion
Series Silt Stop is a group or soil specific tailored polyacrylamide co-polymer emulsions
for erosion control. They reduce and prevent erosion of fine particles and colloidal clays from water.
Gentle to Moderate slopes (0 to 4H:1V)
Mine Tailings and Waste Piles
Newly Cleared Construction or Building Sites
Road and Highway Construction
Hydroseeding and Water Truck Application
Features and Benefits:
Removes Solubilized Soils and Clay from Water
Prevents Colloidal Solutions in Water When Applied to the Soil Surface
Will Reduce Soil Movement During Rain Event on Moderate Slopes
Binds Cationic Metals within the Soil Matrix, Reducing
Reduces Wind Borne Dust Conditions
Increases Soil Permeability and Water Penetration to Shallow Plants
Reduces Operational and Cleanup Costs
Reduces Environmental Risk and Compliance

Dosage-application rates are determined on soil specific testing.
Soil polymers and blends should never be used without testing the
soil first. Consult your local distributor or send your
samples to Applied Polymer Systems, Inc.
Directions for Use
before opening as separation may have occurred.
APS 600 Series Silt Stop Emulsions may be applied with hydroseeders, water trucks or other spraying devices. Spraying devices having a mechanical agitator or mixing apparatus or hydraulic recirculation will work best.
Pour emulsion into the water tank or hydroseeder filling water stream or with a mixing apparatus operating, and pour emulsion into the filled tank. Allow emulsion to mix for one - two minutes before application. Seed, fertilizer, and mulch should be added into hydroseeders before the emulsion has been added.
APS Silt Stop Emulsion must be added at the end of the final mix and sprayed immediately. WIth the emulsion you must have 100% coverage.
Caution - Do not exceed 1.5 gallons of emulsion / 1500 gallons as viscosity of the water may reduce spraying efficiency or damage spraying equipment.
Spilled emulsion should be cleaned up as soon as possible using absorbent material. Sand, wood fiber or straw may be applied to a spilled area as a temporary measure.
Do Not try to hose away a large amount of spilled emulsion without first removing the majority of the spill. Extreme slippery conditions will result. In event of skin contact, wash emulsion from skin as soon as possible using soap and water.
Precautions / Limitations:
- Clean up spills
quickly. DO NOT use water unless necessary, extremely
slippery conditions will result.
- DO NOT add water
to the APS 600 Series Silt Stop emulsion, add the emulsion to
the water slowly, while mixing, or into the tank-filling water
- APS Silt Stop
emulsion will remain viable on the soil surface for 60-90 days.
Longer viability will occur when applied emulsion is covered
with straw or wood fiber mulch.
- APS 600 Series
Silt Stop has been specifically tailored to specific soil types.
Soil types in varying geographical areas may require testing.
