Over the past two years the product has been successfully applied in different industries, each with its own unique demands and performance criteria.

These applications range from rock face support in mining, damp proofing and bacterial control in chicken houses, waterproofing of both industrial and residential roofs, damp proofing and damage control in a horse stable, sealing a swimming pool, water proofing a parking garage’s roof, etc.
 
MINING | INDUSTRIAL | AGRICULTURE

MINING

Example 1
--------------
Where: North Shaft, Modikwa Platinum Mine
What required: Consolidation of rock faces in drives, cubbies and raises.
Why: Rapid progress with development in these areas was required
How solved: Diamondguard was applied in varying thicknesses according to the client’s demands. In one area serpentinite was encountered, requiring pre-preparation of the rock face with HK100, a cementitious product developed by the company to first bind the characteristically loose particles of serpentinite prior to the application of Diamondguard
Client’s reaction: Satisfied, waiting for new capital expenditure approval to authorize more work
 
 
Example 2
--------------
Where: Premier Diamond Mine
What required: Sealing of diamond recovery room floor
Why: Security
How solved: Sprayed floor with 1½mm Diamondguard to which silicon sand was added to make the finish non-slip.
Client’s reaction: Would like the product to be tested underground

INDUSTRIAL

Where: Primary School in Hyde Park, Johannesburg
What required: Waterproofing of flat concrete roof
Why: To prevent water ingress onto walkway below the roof
How solved: The concrete surface was pre cleaned and then a 1.5 mm green UV resistant Diamonguard thin spray lining was applied
Client’s reaction: Client entirely satisfied
 
 

AGRICULTURE

Where: Cheyeza Chicken Farm, Tzaneen district
What required: Damp and bacteria proofing of chicken house
Why: To reduce mortality rate caused by rising damp and bacterial infestation
How solved: Sprayed entire floor and bottom 1 metre of walls with 1½mm Diamondguard
Client’s reaction: Mortalities reduced significantly, weight gains improved, cleaning time of chicken house reduced. Finance permitting, would prefer next three chicken houses to be sprayed with Diamondguard
