Rock bolts and structures
Following a significant slowdown in 2009, the worldwide budgets for non-ferrous metals exploration have raised exponentially in 2010 and 2011 to reach an impressive 18.2 billion US dollars. Although the present and foreseen future of these investments is a little more moderate they nevertheless remain in growth.
With all these new projects, and particularly the ones in corrosive environments, the need for a concrete reinforcement solution for the structures as well as soil retention products increases greatly.
With the product V•ROD of Pultrall...
Pultrall is therefore offering to the mining industry and all its stakeholders the best suited solution to overcome the deterioration of these structures with a composite concrete reinforcement rod absolutely impervious to corrosion.
We also offer engineering and re-engineering services for your mining project in order to translate your steel reinforced project to a V•ROD reinforced one. Are also available, form ties and their accessories as well as soil retention products (rock bolts).
In addition to the important sums that the possible rehabilitation and replacement of your equipments and structures represent, health and safety of the workers should not be neglected as they are vital elements to mining or exploration sites smooth operations.
For all the above reasons, and much more, Pultrall should be your preferred partner in all your mining projects.

about V•ROD rebar.
V•ROD rebar does not rust, even in the harshest environments. It does not react to salt, chemical products or the alkalinity present in concrete.
V•ROD rebar does not create a thermal bridge within structures.
She is almost 4 times lighter than steel rebar. It is much easier to handle and, in most cases, one truck load will be sufficient to carry the rebar required on an entire project.
V•ROD rebar offers a level of thermal expansion comparable to concrete due to its 80% silica content.
V•ROD rebar does not contain any metal; it will not cause any interference in contact with strong magnetic fields or when operating sensitive electronic instruments.
V•ROD rebar produced by pultrusion offers a tensile strength that can reach more than five times that of steel.
V•ROD rebar can be delivered at the right time and in the exact quantity needed at the site. Various specifications such as the length of straight bars as well as angles and led lengths of special bent sections are prepared in the plant.
