Mine Backfill

Mine stability after placement

Mine backfill technologies help to provide an optimum balance of high early strength and sustainable long term strength, ensuring dimensional stability after placement to meet or exceed design fill performance requirements. BASF’s range of MasterRoc backfill admixtures can help customers challenge conventional physical limitations by:

  • Improving backfill durability
  • Controlling retardation, acceleration and rheology
  • Modifying viscosity, reducing yield stress and pumping pressures.

Mine Backfilling Products

Accelerators

MasterRoc MF 101

Improves workability | Faster backfill set times | Quicker mine re-entry for increased excavation rates

MasterRoc MF 102

Highly accelerates setting time | Can be used in backfill operations in temperatures as low as 20ºF or -7ºC | Reduces cycle time and increases production rates
Hydration Control

MasterRoc MF 701

Provides flexible and extended working and retention time | Reduces pressure losses and enables longer-distance transportation | Dramatically reduces potential of pipe blockages
Plasticizer

MasterRoc MF 501

Improves slump and flowability of backfill mixtures | Improves mix optimization and reduces binder usages | Reduces permeability and shrinkage in hardened fill

MasterRoc MF 510

New generation water reducing technology | Lower viscosity and lower friction losses in transportation | Wide range of dosage rates and less sensitive to material changes

MasterRoc MF 901

Next generation plasticizing polymer with quick wetting effect and high efficiency mixing | Extended setting time can be achieved with a higher dosage rate | Reduces cycle time and increases production rates
Viscosity Modifier

MasterRoc MF 308

Lubricates the fill, enhances pumping and self-leveling of the fill | Improves mechanical properties of self-leveling fluid | Facilitates production of highly fluid paste
