Gratex® Extends Design Life at Zinc Mining Site

As one can appreciate, material choice at one of the world’s largest providers of zinc in bulk concentrate form require careful thought given the demanding and corrosive conditions. Treadwell’s FRP grating was selected to meet these challenges to extend design life.

FRP products provide a lightweight, high strength, high-performance alternative to steel, that is both resistant to corrosion and reduces the risk of mechanical damage during the removal process.

Treadwell continues to diversify its range of products to meet growing demands for high-quality FRP solutions that meet varying geotechnical conditions within the context of mining, civil construction, and environmental applications with safety and cost effectiveness in mind.
