We drive the innovation in the production of encapsulated grout technologies.
Striving to simplify the grouting process, we developed our encapsulated grouts such as Lokset and Capcem, which are used in the mining, construction and energy sectors.
Our special cementitious grouts and resins are used in both manual and automatic installations, providing you with a versatile solution for your project.
We have manufactured Lokset resin capsules since the late 1960's and are the leading supplier and innovator in this field.
The Lokset system consists of an easily handled cartridge, containing a highly reinforced polyester resin component, together with its catalyst. The rotation of the bolt during installation ruptures the capsule, shreds the skin and mixes the two components causing a chemical reaction and curing resin mastic.
The Lokset resin capsule series is available in multiple configurations of single/double length combinations, diameter, set time, set time combinations, viscosity and shelf life.
Lokset® was first used for strengthening of London Heathrow Airport's road access tunnel in 1963, to allow heavier planes to land. Since then, our product has become a world-leading solution for anchoring applications.
Our grouting solutions are used for anchoring, bolting, backfilling, crack and void filling and as ventillation seals and standing support.
Our extensive portfolio ranges from standard pumpable to high-performance rapid-setting and high-strength grouts.
Our anchoring products include materials suitable for both manual and mechanised bolt grouting technologies. Our cementitious products are supplied pre-blended and pre-packaged for your ease of use.
From ultra-foaming to high strength and fast setting, our injection chemicals anchor, consolidate and control gases, water and strata in all types of ground conditions. 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.
Our PUR products can be injected under high pressures and have a long history in preventing water ingress.
Our resin 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.
Our pumpable resin, CarboThix is used with our Self Drilling Bolts to form our One Step Bolting System. The immediate bonding of the resin makes it possible to load the bolts without leaving the borehole, making the bolting process safer, significantly quicker and more efficient.
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 high-profile projects. 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.
Our TekCrete Fast was originally developed in conjunction with the University of Kentucky and U.S. Homeland Security to aid the work of the first responders and allow them to enter shock-damaged buildings. The result was a sprayable, super-fast setting and hardening structural shotcrete.
We provide you with solutions for both active and passive methods of rock support wherever you are.
Our products range from various steel and Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) bolts to steel arches, meshes and accessories.
We offer a full range of solutions that address the requirements for increased life cycle, ranging from stainless steel bolts to specialist coatings and new technologies. We offer multiple coating solutions for a wide range of bolts that increase bolt lifespan while maintaining bolt performance. Due to varying geological conditions and project applications, a single bolt is unlikely to meet all requirements.
Our lining materials are used for sewer pipeline repair.
