Previously not sold directly, the Boraid line of soil conditioners, polymers and shield sealants will now be available to tunnel builders globally, beginning in North America. Made in the US, the products are claimed to have shown, over numerous diverse projects, that they can perform at a high level and bring better advance rates, reduced torque, less cutter wear and reduced downtime.

Chris Hebert, Traylor VP and Underground Division Manager, said: “Tunnel contractors have recognised the value in procuring our Traylor Precast tunnel liners on their projects for more than 20 years. With the Boraid line, we recognise similar quality and performance that will surely be of interest to the same customer base.”

Strata Worldwide President and CEO Mike Berube said: “We are very happy to represent Traylor Bros and act as their market channel partner in the distribution of this technology. This is a very unique and novel line of products that will be the perfect addition to our Geotech offerings.”

Consultation and proposals are immediately available for existing and upcoming projects. Mike Rispin, Strata Tunneling VP said: “We are excited to add these excellent, complementary technologies to the Strata portfolio that the industry is already aware of. Strata Tunneling now offers solutions on even more fronts, thereby enhancing our value as a partner to tunnel constructors.”
