Diamondguard was specifically developed to offer a cleaner, faster and more durable liner for the consolidation of the walls of tunnels underground in the mining industry.

It offers particular advantages where rapid sealing and consolidation of side and hanging walls of excavated areas are required to prevent weathering of the rock faces and the risks associated with falling rocks as well as to control water ingress.

Subsequent application of the product as a sealant, waterproofing and anti-bacterial agent in other industries have proven to be extremely beneficial.
