Perfect flooring finish

Technical Finishes’ Polyscreed Terrazzo is a heavy-duty flow applied polyurethane topping based on dispersed water and a liquid polyurethane resin system.

It offers a textured, smooth aggregate surface of uniform colour designed for excellent resistance to abrasion, chemical attack and other physical aggression and contains silver ion technology for antimicrobial protection. This seamless flooring is easy to clean and sanitize.

Chemical processing plants and engineering areas are just some of the applications that are ideal for this floor as its high abrasion and high impact resistance makes it ideal for the mining industry.

Grouting for mines

Exporite - Grouting for mines

Grouting for mines

Epoxerite is a supplier of high quality grouts for a myriad of applications in the mining industry.

One of the products is the bonding agent for pre-stressed cable anchors and is ideal for deep underground mines. It also provides a significantly safer alternative to the use of sticks to support stopes at the rock face, while also freeing up the necessary space for the introduction of mechanised technologies to significantly improve production.

The product delivers an ultimate tensile strength of almost 80% of the cable and also allows rock engineers to anchor higher into the hang wall of the stope than is possible using a conventional solid-steel roof bolt.

Signalling reliability

Pepperl - Signalling reliability

Signalling reliability

Signal conditioners protect signal transfer between field devices in safe areas and control systems by galvanic isolation of the loop.

Particularly in case of long transmission paths, signal conditioners avoid compensating currents which may occur from ground loops. Signal conditioners also offer effective protection against electromagnetic disturbance or dangerous over voltages on the signal loops.

Depending on the type, signal conditioners offer additional features like limit switching, transformation from field in standard signals as well as splitting of signals, which means doubling the input signal.
