The lightweight polypropylene – weighing in at 2.3-2.4kg/sq m – also provides occupational health and safety benefits associated with manual handling and installation.

“This innovative concept was developed through an identified need for this type of product within the underground coal industry,” Mastermyne Group consumables manager Gavin Welsh said.

Mr Welsh said the company believed Stratanet would be beneficial to the hard rock mining sector as well, which would further diversify the Wilson Mining offering to new markets and industries.

The product has undergone site trials and large-scale pull tests have been conducted at the University of Wollongong.

It is Australian made, manufactured in Victoria by Corex Plastics, a plastic extrusion and fabrication business who developed Stratanet in partnership with Wilson.
