ROAD REPAIR PRODUCTS

Crack Sealing Tapes, Pothole and Trench Reinstatement Sealing Tapes, Bitumastic Joint Sealer, Pavetex Geotextile, Fibreglass Grid. These products are all designed for proactive road maintenance

WE OFFER A RANGE OF PROACTIVE ROAD MAINTAINANCE PRODUCTS SUCH AS:

Pothole and Trench reinstatement sealing tapes

Sealing of pothole and trench cutouts in road surfaces – applied to the cutout vertical surfaces and provides an elastic joint seal

Pavetex geotextile

Applied as a SAMI to roadway surfaces which seals and provides stress relief, resulting in longevity to the new wearing course

Crack tape

A self-adhesive, cold applied, polymer modified, high tack bituminous tape. It has a quick release film on one side and is produced in roll form. Crack tape is used for surface sealing of open cracks (up to 5mm width) on asphalt and concrete pavements and can be used as a pretreatment before being overlayed.

Features
  • instant seal against ingress of water into cracks and road base
  • flexible in order to follow the crack profile and line
  • fast application
  • uniform seal
  • high adhesion to asphalt, concrete or steel
  • tough, durable and long-life seal
  • cold applied compound with dispensible release film
  • for use as an exposed crack sealer or can be surfaced with an asphalt, chip and sprey or slurry

Pave seal

A self-adhesive, cold applied, glass reinforced, polymer modified bituminous strip for sealing joints between existing asphalt and new asphalt installations.

Pave seal is used in road repair as a waterproofing joint sealant where new asphalt patches or maintenance is required against existing asphalt surfaces. It also seals joints between asphalt and concrete or steel, such as concrete curb work, catch pits or manhole covers.

Features
  • prevents ingress of water into joint
  • 100% coverage of the perimeter of the joint
  • uniform 4mm seal
  • high adhesion to asphalt, concrete or steel
  • tough, durable and long-life seal
  • cold applied compound with dispensible release film

Pavetex 140

Description:

A nonwoven needlepunched paving felt used for preventative maintenance in road repair. Pavetex is supplied in narrow strips for localised repair to cracks or in full width.

Use:

When saturated with bitumen, pavetex effectively seals the existing pavement from ingress of water and retards any further reflective cracking that may occur to the new road surface. This provides a greater durability and lifespan to the repaired road.

Features:
  • high melt point
  • limited stretch
  • convienient sized packages
Benefits
  • Prolongs fatigue life when the structural layers are weak and susceptible to rutting or shrinkage cracking.
  • Cost effective alternative to an expensive structural upgrade.
  • Reduces required overlay thickness by retarding the passage of cracks through an asphalt layer.
  • Lower maintenance costs by extending the life of the existing surface.
  • Can be re-milled in the cold recycling process
  • Excellent heat resistance thus not effected by hot bitumen
  • Prolongs repaired roads lifetime by a factor of 3 – Austrian municipalities use a factor of 4
  • Prevents the ingress of water and oxygen by providing a complete surface seal.
  • Quick and easy to install – saves time and reduces costs long term.
  • Bridges shrinkage cracks retarding their propagation up through the surfacing.
  • Retards reflective cracking by acting as a sami and dissipates stresses laterally.
