When it comes to road repairs, particularly on arterial routes, efficiency is everything. Apart from the risk of damage caused to road-users by poorly maintained paving, there’s usually a high cost in shutting down roads for repairs and a very small window when the road can be worked on.
Usually problems arise at seams in the road, such as manhole covers or expansion joints, where two materials meet and react differently under heavy loads. This last ‘couple of percent’ of the total job often costs the developers days if not weeks, and can be the first elements to fail in the future.
With years of experience in providing solutions for road repairs, mastic asphalt maestro’s IKO have developed a product which is sure to make even the most dour engineer or works manager break into a smile.
PermaTrack is a specially developed hi-polymer mastic asphalt filler, which sets hard in an hour, and can withstand heavy traffic in two. It’s ideal for filling cracks in the paving, finishing around manholes or access points, and even as infill on level crossings or tram lines (to cover the unsightly and unsafe metal fasteners, leaving only the top of the rail exposed).
PermaTrack is BBA Certified. It’s usually mixed with 40-45% added grit and supplied “hot-charged” or prepared on site. No matter the size or shape of the space you’re aiming to fill, PermaTrack can be built up layer by layer, until the desired height is reached. It can be shaped by hand, hardens in approximately 20 minutes, and requires no compacting (unlike conventional asphalt products). It offers not only a fast and efficient solution for attractive and effective finishing on new paving developments, it’s also an incredibly flexible maintenance tool. It’s quick and easy to apply, requiring very little preparation, and can withstand heavy loads for decades.
