Low resistance earthing compound provides a permanent, simple solution to substantially lower the resistance of an earthing system. It is a high performance low-resistance earthing compound which has been pre-mixed with cement to form a high strength electrically conductive concrete to last for the life of the system. It is widely used in earthing and grounding applications where permanent low resistance and high compressive strength solutions are required.
By mixing Low Res with cement at a ratio of 2:1 the resulting concrete is electrically conductive whilst offering a solid electrical connection between the earthing system and the ground. Low resistance is a non-leaching, maintenance free stable earthing compound ideal for use in ground conditions where conductivity is very poor such as rock or shale. Low Res provides a permanent path for excellent conduction of current instead of attempting to employ large diameter difficult to drive earth rods.
Low resistance applications include static control for aircraft aprons and fuel tankers, RF and microwave screening and earthing for a wide variety of applications in Oil and Gas installations, Telecommunications industry, Defence Establishments, Rail and Underground installations, Electricity and Water Companies.
