 ACS Pitcrete is a premium pre-packaged, water resistant, sprayable ventilation system used largely in mining applications.

A single application product, ACS Pitcrete provides superior strength characteristics, reduced water permeability qualities and a reduction in application time and costs.

It is particularly suitable for underground ventilation control devices and sealing applications. Because of its reduced water permeability qualities, a water proofing membrane is usually not required prior to application.

Recommended Uses

ACS Pitcrete is typically used in underground mining applications for ventilation sealing, where low water permeability is required.

Technical Properties

Typical properties when mixed with the appropriate amount of potable water and tested at 25ºC and 50% RH.

Fire Resistance

ACS Pitcrete complied with the requirements of MDG3006MRT8 (Draft Jan2007), 5.1c) Fire Resistance when tested in accordance with Mine Safety Test Method 98/1070 Issue No.3 Part C.

A full copy of the test results are available upon request.

Application

The surface to be sprayed shall be prepared by removing all unsound materials and debris.

ACS Pitcrete can be applied in depths of 10 – 200mm in one pass depending on the spraying method used, as well as substrate and weather conditions.

Cleaning

All tools should be rinsed with water immediately after use to remove all traces of ACS Pitcrete.

Storage

If kept dry and stored in its original condition, ACS Pitcrete will keep indefinetly.

The shelf life of the product may be reduced if subjected to high temperatures and high humidity.

Health and Safety

During use, avoid inhalation of dust and contact with the skin and eyes. Wear suitable clothing, gloves, eye protection and respiratory protective equipment.

If contact with the skin occurs, thoroughly clean the area with plenty of fresh water and soap. In case of contact with the eyes rinse with plenty of fresh water and seek medical advice.

If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.

For further information consult the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and read the product label carefully before use.
