EPOXY SECURITY SOLUTIONS

Call for a Quote

Our innovative EpoxyFix compound is a highly effective, industrial-strength anti-theft measure for battery installations.

Now gaining considerable traction in the telecoms industry, our EpoxyFix security solution protects batteries installed in the field.

With an easy, three-step mixing procedure involving non-volatile chemicals that reduce health risks, the solvent-free mouldable putty adheres to most surfaces, dries fast, and can match all shapes and configurations.

Locally produced and with 80% of material locally sourced, it is steel-reinforced and can be coloured and adapted to niche requirements.

Background –  EpoxyFix.

Sustained and reliable electrical power is critical to infrastructure, particularly to power instrumentation or power dependent sites. But reliable power supply is increasingly hard to come by, particularly in developing countries, and hybrid power solutions are becoming the norm to ensure reliable electrical power supply to sites.

The problem is these hybrid solutions are often the target of theft or vandalism which in turn leads to periods of downtime at the site resulting in financial and reputational harm to the service provider affected by power outages. In addition to the downtime cost, replacement of equipment is expensive and time consuming.

Whilst it is almost impossible to eradicate theft or vandalism, having a cost-effective protector to shield valuable equipment from damage and deter thieves is highly sought after.

Solutions to these problems have included custom-built cages or constructing a concrete encasing around the items requiring protection. Unfortunately cages, or the locks to the cages, are easily cut with an angle grinder or other cutting tools making the protection limited. Concrete, once cured, is a deterrent but can also be cut with an angle grinder and it also takes approximately 28 days to fully cure. Until such curing time is achieved, concrete encased equipment will be vulnerable to theft and vandalism.

Recently, epoxy mortars have been introduced as an alternative to concrete encasing. But epoxies are as varied in their characteristics as fish in the ocean. In addition, if the correct solid material is not included in the epoxy mixture, the resultant epoxy encasing offer no more protection to a would-be thief or vandal than the mud cakes children make in their classroom break.

The advantages of EpoxyFix include:

Easy three step mixing procedure – it’s simply A + B + C

Steel reinforced for added toughness

  1. Non-volatile chemicals – less health risks to installers
  2. Solvent free
  3. Saves you time – cures hard in less than 60 minutes
  4. Adheres to most surfaces
  5. Mouldable putty to match all shapes and configurations
  6. Ability to colour EpoxyFix if desired
  7. Locally produced and niche adaptations possible (if requested)

Within 60 minutes, EpoxyFix is highly resistant to damage from:

  1. cutting tools (angle grinders, hacksaws etc.)
  2. flame torches
  3. blunt instruments (hammers, chisels etc.) – compressive strength in excess of 100 MPA (regular concrete after 28 days of curing ranges from 20 MPa to 30 MPa

EpoxyFix can therefore be mixed, applied and within a short time you can leave knowing your instrumentation is protected.

EpoxyFix is currently used in the telecommunication industry to protect high value batteries from theft or vandalism and can be used in many other applications too.
