KB International, formerly KB Technologies, is the world leader in the development of synthetic slurries and synthetic formation stabilization systems for the construction of deep earth excavations, such as diaphragm walls, bored piles or drilled shafts, tie backs, jet grouting, and tunnels. Our products and technology also extend to many other specialty applications within the geoconstruction marketplace. KB's innovative technology has been utilized throughout North America, Asia, Europe, Australia and Africa. Major projects includes the massive Boston Central Artery (USA), Channel Tunnel Rail Link (UK), Vasco da Gama Bridge (Portugal), Richards Bay Bridge (S. Africa), Taiwan High Speed Rail Line (Taiwan) Jefferson Memorial Seawall (USA), Golden Ears Bridge (Canada) and the Columbia University Manhattanville Development (USA).

Our patented systems have been shown in definitive laboratory research and in full-scale field tests to have numerous advantages over traditional bentonite slurries and conventional polymers. These include:

  • Improved rates of excavation
  • Improved excavation geometry and stability
  • Significantly reduced concrete overpour requirements
  • Significantly reduced surface chipping required for connections
  • Greater frictional load bearing capacity in bored piles
  • Improved concrete to rebar bonding
  • Environmentally friendly products
  • Reduced construction site congestion

 

Introducing CoreSMART

CoreSMART is a drilling fluid developed specifically for the mineral exploration market. CoreSMART solves:

  • All-in-one bag
  • Membrane creation for wall stability
  • Excellent solids control
  • High core recovery
  • Easily mixed in fresh water, brackish water and brine
  • Environmentally friendly
  • High temperature stability
  • Keeps clays from swelling
  • Reduces torque and rod chatter
  • Provides increased lubricity for hard rock and diamond drilling
  • Improves the bit life
  • Increases penetration rates
  • Inhibits water sensitive formation

            

  

Geoconstruction technology has greatly advanced over the past decade. Difficult soil conditions such as beach sand, heavy clays, water sensitive clays and shale, low cohesion soils, gravel, cobble and silt as well as many other unstable mediums require slurry and stabilization systems that get the job done. KB International has continued to be at the forefront, developing systems to meet these challenges of today's foundation and subterranean construction.
