Our offering can help you with:
The most trusted brand in resin capsule anchoring systems.
The Lokset® resin cartridge was specifically designed to increase bolting safety, permanence and efficiency.
All versions of Lokset® consist of accurately measured easily handled cartridges, containing a highly reinforced polyester resin mastic together with an organic peroxide catalyst.
The components are isolated from each other by a physical barrier which prevents reaction between the components until mixing.
The sausage shaped cartridge is designed for rapid insertion into a wide range of diameter and length boreholes. The system permits the placing of bolts in any position or angle above or below the horizon. Therefore, optimum bolt anchorage is possible in a wide range of concrete structures or rock strata by easily adjusting the length of the resin anchor zone.
No reaction takes place until the bolt is inserted and rotated through the cartridge, mixing the components and initiating the curing action.
The chemical nature of Lokset® cartridges allow the contents to be easily mixed, yet minimizing resin run out. The mixed resin fills the annulus around the bolt and creates a superior mechanical interlock with the surrounding strata. Standard “point” anchorages will be firmly interlocked with the substrate and bolt within minutes.
The setting time of the resin components can be controlled.
A combination of fast- and slow- setting cartridges and differing insertion strengths makes possible the simultaneous operation of anchoring, grouting and tensioning of rock bolts. The simplicity of this method of anchoring/grouting eliminates the need for cumbersome injection equipment.
Our cement grouting solutions for rock bolting applications range from standard pumpable to high-performance rapid setting and high-strength grouts.
Our diverse and comprehensive portfolio is used for bolting applications for mining, construction and energy industries, but it may also be used for general strata injection and consolidation.
Our cement anchoring products include materials suitable for both manual and mechanised bolt grouting technologies. They are supplied pre-blended and pre-packaged for your ease of use.
All grouts are formulated with an expansion compensation system and are resistant to shrinkage.
Over the years we have led technology in the development of ultra-fast curing silicate and polyurethane one and two component resins enabling almost instantaneous loading of bolts and cables, .
Our products are used where time is of the essence, allowing you to speed up the traditional 24-hour curing period that cementitious grouting systems require.
Typical applications include grouting of cable bolts, solid steel/GFRP bolts, the SDA systems or our broader range of anchoring products.
Our pumpable resins, used with our SDA systems form our One Step Bolting System™.
The immediate bonding of the resin makes it possible to load the bolts without leaving the drill-hole making the bolting process safer, significantly quicker and more efficient.
Our pumpable cements were specifically designed to work in various construction projects including infrastructure.
The products are fast to apply and have high pumping rate to help you in the time-critical projects.
Our portfolio allows you to choose the right product depending on the size of your projects from new build to concrete repair.
Minova's injection chemicals consolidate fractured strata and prevent the ingress of water.
Minova's injection chemicals range include polyurethane (PUR), silicate and phenolic-based systems which are also routinely used to stabilise longwall faces in underground coal mines and prevent falls of ground during production. Polyurethane products can be injected under high pressures and have a long history in preventing water ingress of varying magnitudes into the mine.
We employ a qualified team of experienced technical personnel who work exclusively on product development of strata injection and cavity filling chemicals.
In addition to products, our contract services division maintains a large fleet of application equipment including pumps, hoses, equipment/material PODS and injection consumables.
Our comprehensive range of Strata Injection Chemicals includes Polyurethane (PUR), Silicate and Phenolic based systems. All systems are LOBA and NSW DII licensed and are consequently approved for injection in underground coal mines.
The TekTrench System is a pumpable two-component expandable structural grout used to construct pillows and breakers that support oil & gas or utility pipelines.
These pre-blended products offer the simplicity and flexibility of dry-spraying, which is ideally suited to applications where small volumes are needed, the timing of application is unpredictable, or the work site is very constrained. Production can also be scaled up for projects requiring larger volumes.
We developed and manufactured products address the application and performance needs of your project. We ensure that our products meet or exceed your viscosity, setting time, strength and expansion rates required to complete your job. Whether facing unique geological conditions or varying construction materials our products perform.
This innovative technology is increasingly popular for waterproofing in low water pressure environments. In 2013, ITAtech published guidance on the design, specification and application of spray applied waterproofing membranes. Since then, spray applied waterproofing has been used on many projects, including the high profile “Crossrail” underground stations in London. The ability of the sprayed membrane to naturally bond to wall surfaces means that linings can be designed as composite structures which is ideal for use in combination with sprayed concrete. The bond prevents the migration of water that may occur with other traditional membranes.
Thin Spray-on Liners (TSL) were originally developed in the mining industry to cope with rock burst. Minova engineered polymer modified cements are designed to provide fast-acting, highly ductile rock support and are ideal for immediate rock support in challenging ground conditions. Minova structural membranes are a high-performance alternative to conventionally sprayed concrete where fast-acting support is needed, small volumes are required, or space is limited. This makes Minova TSLs highly suitable for application behind the Front Support, in hard rock gripper TBMs, or in mining and tunnel repair projects.
