Rio Tinto - Brockman 4 Iron Ore Mine, Pilbara

Brockman4bDuraseal was contracted to apply a liquid rubber coating to five multi-plate iron train tunnels on site. This waterproof coating is of great benefit to the tunnels in cyclonic conditions. The coating was applied using specialised pumping equipment along with boom lifts required for access to all exposed external sides of the tunnel. The coating was then inspected and tested before a layer of geo fabric was installed over the coating to protect it from damage when back filling.
