Founded in 1992, PR Polymers Pty Ltd (PRP) is a privately owned Australian company that specialises in the manufacture and supply of mineral processing products, drilling consumables, air decking/stemming products for the mining and drilling industries as well as a range of specialised polyurethane products. The manufacturing, packaging and marketing of our products within our range are carried out in Australia. Our products are made with Australian harsh weather conditions in mind which make our products suitable for use all over the world.
PR Polymers supplies its products throughout Australia, North America and Latin America. We supply a comprehensive range of drilling and blasting consumables to open cut, underground and hard rock mines worldwide. This is backed up by a manufacturing facility capable of custom producing high performance components that meet specific customer needs.
For mining companies wrestling with high costs and safety in the Drill & Blast process, PR Polymers can try and reduce the risk of FUME & poor fragmentation by improving the efficiency and safety through customisation of the KoolKap Down-Under Bags & Polymer products.
KoolKap® Down-Under Bags have been awarded by The Aerosol Association of Australia and New Zealand “The 2005 Award for Environmental Achievement and Sustainability”.
KoolKap® Down-Under Bags have a real environmental and safety advantage over alternative technologies which use synthetic greenhouse propellants. KoolKap® Down-Under Bags have a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1 compared to some propellants like R134A giving them an estimated GWP of 1430.
We also have Testing Procedures which are carried out at all times by:
Weighing of every can when filled to ensure there is enough propellant inside to inflate the Gas Bag to its nominal pressure. Visual Inspection of the plastic inner bags to make sure there are no defects in the plastic or the seals.
Full activation of 10% of the bags in a batch.
Assigning a Master Batch Number to each single can to increase traceability back to a bag. The recording of all Batch Numbers of all raw materials involved in the manufacture and retention of a significant number of samples from each batch. KoolKap® cans have also been independently tested by Falcon Test Engineers who are a NATA qualified organisation. PR Polymers is ISO:9001 accredited and all manufacturing procedures documented to comply.
