All mortars we use are FRE (Fiberglass reinforced epoxy) as the standard mortar material supported by NRCan - ERD. Mortars and equipment are inspected after each use for faults and quality assurance.
Racks are custom built and designed to handle product failures in the mortar. Design considers consistent sizing across all calibers which allows field deloyments with stability using tight side bracing.
