Global Mining Review,

JENNCHEM has reached an agreement with Quaker Chemical Corp. granting JENNCHEM exclusive distribution rights for Quaker’s mining ground-control agents.

JENNCHEM designs and delivers chemical roof support, rock stabilisation and ventilation sealing products to the mining and underground construction industries. They are an affiliate of JENNMAR, which develops and manufactures ground control products for more than forty years.

Quaker Chemical Corp, headquartered in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, US, is a global provider of process fluids, chemical specialties, and technical expertise to a wide range of industries, including steel, aluminum, automotive, mining, aerospace, tube and pipe, cans, and others.

Specific products that will be branded JENNCHEM and exclusively distributed under the agreement include:

  • JENNCHEM PUR 70 (Minetech PUR 70), a two-component polyurethane product intended for ground stabilisation and consolidation of fractured or unstable strata.
  • JENNCHEM US Foam (Minetech Foamsil), a rapid reacting silicate foam system used for cavity filling applications.
  • JENNCHEM US Grout (Minetech Aquasil), a two-component silicate injection resin used for ground consolidation, water stopping and strata reinforcement.
  • JENNCHEM J-FOAM (Minetech Q-Foam), a low-pressure spray polyurethane foam system.

The agreement also puts emphasis on product development and mine service. Tony Calandra, Executive Vice President of JENNMAR companies, stated: “Together, we will be collaborating on innovative chemical solutions for ground control and ventilation products as well as providing superior service to our customers. This agreement will surely be an added benefit to the mining industry.”

Managing the JENNCHEM/Quaker alliance will be Quaker’s Jim Magro and JENNCHEM’s Chief Operating Officer, Fred Stafford. Brian Czartoski, Lead Chemical Applicator with JENNCHEM, will be driving customer service and product enhancements.
