Quicker, Easier-to-Handle Ventilation Seal Products

Minova Americas announced expansion of its family of ventilation seals to include a new material that can be placed and obtain the required 120-psi strength in just three days. “This new product will be a significant advantage for our customers,” said Steve Tadolini, director of research and development. “It is common for coal mines to experience rapid build-up of dangerous gasses behind sealed-off areas. To overcome potential safety hazards associated with these build-ups, and to enable work to continue more quickly around newly sealed areas, our R&D team has developed a Tekseal that cures in only three days.”

In addition to the new three-day cure for Tekseal, Minova also unveiled new packaging that allows bulk handling of its standard-setting Tekseal products. The new bulk bags, constructed of a reinforced nylon material with a heavy-duty plastic liner, are tear- and water-resistant, contain the equivalent of a full pallet of individual bags and require no manual handling. An added safety feature is a significant reduction in airborne dust and waste material handling. The Minova bulk system also reduces the time and labor required to install a seal and helps to ensure a consistent mix.
