Using Sigma fiberglass bolts in situations where subsequent excavation will take place has long been a standard practice. The low shear strength and high tensile capacity (as compared to mild steel rock bolts) of the Sigma fiberglass bolts make it the ideal material for this application. The use of our bolts decreases machine down time because it is easily cutable and won't damage valuable mining equipment.
