The Lokset system consists of an easily handled cartridge, containing a highly reinforced polyester resin component, together with its catalyst, in accurately measured quantities.
Reaction takes place when the roof or rock bolt is rotated through the cartridge, mixing the components and initiating the curing action. The chemical nature of the Lokset cartridge allows the contents to be easily mixed, yet minimises resin run-out after mixing is complete.
The setting time of the resin components can be controlled. A combination of fast and slow-setting cartridges makes possible the simultaneous operation of anchoring, grouting and tensioning a rock bolt. The simplicity of this method of anchoring/grouting eliminates the need for cumbersome injection equipment.
The cartridges are designed for rapid insertion into a range of borehole sizes, where they may be readily pushed to the extremity at any angle above or below the horizon
