Lokset™ Resin Capsules

Lokset™ Resin is a two-component resin capsule used in mining and construction industries.

Lokset capsules are filled with a reinforced thixotropic polyester resin in one compartment and a catalysed mastic filler in the other, separated by a physical barrier. The rotation of the bolt during installation ruptures the capsule, shreds the skin and mixes the two components causing a chemical reaction and transforming the resin mastic into a solid anchor.

Advantages
  • Fast setting, easy to install
  • Customised set times & dimensions
  • Quick high-load transfer
Product Features
  • Easy to install, requiring no special injection equipment
  • Resistant to anchoring failure caused by blasting or vibration
  • Rapid anchoring of the bolt to the surrounding strata
