About Our Mining Sector Solutions

With over 150 years of experience shared among our employees, our compounds are designed to ensure the highest levels of safety and performance in some of the most challenging environments.

Specifically formulated to meet the stringent requirements of the National Coal Board (NCB 158:1989 Specification), our compounds possess inherent flame-retardant properties. This crucial feature minimises the risk of fire hazards, providing enhanced safety for mining operations where the risk of fire is a significant concern.

These compounds are engineered with anti-static properties to eliminate any risk of sparking. In the confined and potentially gas-rich environment of underground mining, preventing sparks is critical to avoiding explosions and ensuring the safety of the miners.

These compounds are tailored to withstand a broad spectrum of harsh conditions commonly encountered in mining settings. This includes extreme pressures, abrasive materials, and the constant wear and tear of operation, ensuring durability and reliability.

Exposure to oils and a variety of chemicals is a common challenge in mining applications. Our compounds are resistant to such substances, preventing degradation and maintaining their integrity even in direct contact with oils and chemicals.
