CarboThix™

These products were designed to improve the productivity of ground support installation in underground mining and tunnelling applications. Using the pumpable resin enables the load to be taken up in minutes rather than the typical 24 hours from cementitious grouted systems.

 

CarboThix™ Fast

CarboThix™ Fast is an immediate partially stiffening and very fast curing dual component silicate resin for bonding injection drilling anchors, also for rock stabilization and water sealing. CarboThix Fast was developed to improve the productivity of ground support installation in underground mining and tunnelling applications. Using the pumpable resin enables loads to be taken up in minutes rather than the typical 24 hours from cementitious grouted systems. Typical applications of CarboThix Fast include grouting of cable bolts, steel or GFRP bolts, and sealing of roof bolts.

 

CarboThix™ 2

Typical applications of CarboThix™ 2 include sealing of injection bolts, steel or GFRP rods, and sealing of roof bolts. During application, the two components are intimately mixed and achieve a grease-like viscosity (the so called Thix effect) so that the grout stops flowing and cures to form a tough elastic and non-porous resin that will not mix with water or be diluted in wet holes.

Product title
TEKCRIB SUPPORT SYSTEM

Cylindrical bags, 27” or 30” diameter, are secured to the mine roof and are subsequently filled with a foamed cement.

The installation of the TekCrib system is accomplished by using the Minova TekPlacer unit, specially designed to combine the TekCrib powder with air and water, producing a cementitious foam.

The foam is typically pumped a distance of 1,000 ft., although much longer distances are possible, especially when pumping down surface boreholes. The mix begins to gel within minutes of discharge and cures to a final strength, ranging from approximately 400-800 psi.

TekPak P

TekPak P is a patented pumpable crib material having substantial benefits in terms of roof control, speed and ease of installation. TekPak P has a high early strength allowing the crib to resist bed separation and convergence. The fully cured strength is substantial with over 150 tons of load bearing capacity.

TekSet®

TekSet® is a single-component, cementitious grout designed as a fill for a bag placed between the top of a crib and the mine roof, or atop a specially designed post system. Depending on the water temperature, the material will set in approximately 10 to 15 minutes. The tedious routine of blocking and wedging supplemental roof support is replaced by a simpler, faster and more efficient means.

Tekcrete™ Fast

TekCrete Fast was developed in response to customer  demand for a shotcrete (gunite) with effectively immediate strength on application. TekCrete Fast may be used with or without steel or polymer mesh, although the use of mesh will provide additional tensile and flexural strength.

Fiber reinforced, this product offers superlative adhesion characteristics with typical compressive strengths over 11,000 psi. It is ideally suited for use where immediate structural strength is required.

Binding broken base material together for better structural integrity, TekCrete Fast can be used anywhere where conventional shotcrete (gunite) is used and with any coating or sealant. It performs best when applied as soon as possible after the base material is exposed. Including rebound, TekCrete Fast has a surface coverage of approximately 8.2 ft2 per 60lb. bag at an application thickness of 1⁄2“.
