Patented insertion system developed to remotely install Lokset resin capsules into boreholes for rock bolting. The Quick-Chem system is used in conjunction with Lokset resin capsules to ensure quick, safe, efficient and remote insertion of the resin capsule into the bolt hole.
The system aids mechanical installation of resin capsules where hand installation is not practical. The system includes a purpose designed retaining cap (attached to the resin capsule) and an insertion tube. The insertion tubes consist of a 25mm, 26mm, 30mm or 36mm diameter tube and R32 threaded adaptor sleeve. The tubes are fitted into the Jumbo drifter, and used to safely insert resin capsules undamaged to the back of each borehole.

Two resin capsules joined and folded in half for packaging. A system developed to enable full encapsulated mechanised resin bolting, utilising the Quick‑Chem™ resin capsule insertion system. Lokset X2 range is available with any single or combination of Minova resin capsule mastics. Any capsule combination can be ordered and the individual Quick-Chem caps are supplied in the boxes.
The capsule is filled with a reinforced thixotropic polyester resin in one compartment and a catalysed mastic filler in the other, separated by a physical barrier. The rotation of the bolt during installation ruptures the capsule, shreds the skin and mixes the two components causing a chemical reaction and transforming the resin mastic into a solid anchor.
