TekFlex® PM Accelerator

TekFlex® PM Accelerator was developed in response to customer demand for a extremely rapid setting gunite with improved adhesion and high build rates.

TekFlex PM is a non-shrinking cement that dries to a durable off-white finish.

TekFlex® PM Accelerator is specially designed for use in the Minova Apex continuous placing machine with TekFlex PM. The accelerator causes TekFlex PM to set rapidly.

When pumped through Minova designed air-powered, hydraulic-powered equipment or a standard dry process (gunite) shotcrete pump TekFlex® PM Accelerator has a near instant set time.

This allows for high build, bridging of gaps and it allows TekFlex® PM to seal holes with pressure on them, such as on a leaky overcast. Other uses include the prevention of spalling from moisture ingress and helping ensure the structural integrity of mine passages.
