Lokset™ Resin Capsules

Lokset™ Resin Capsules are two-component resin mortars used in mining and construction industry.

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

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
  • High load transfers achievable almost immediately
  • Full column bonded bolts strongly resist the horizontal and lateral strata movement associated with convergence
  • Provides strength and rigidity to prevent sag
  • Acts as a reinforcement that clamps the individual strata layers into a single high strength beam
  • Effectively seals wet, dripping holes and in most cases eliminates deterioration of the hole and surrounding strata
  • Unaffected by sea or fresh water, mild acids, or mild alkali's
  • Immediately fixes rock bolts / anchors
  • Protects bolts from corrosion, can be used in wet /underwater conditions
