Road Surface Repairs
km 146.1, FRN, A2/48, near Erstfeld/ north direction, Switzerland
Asphalt and concrete road surfaces
In the past any repairs of damaged and worn surfaces as well as of minor damage to the road had mostly been carried out using bitumen-based or bitumenemulsion-based products. Due to the uncontrollable ultimate strength, such products meant that sections of the road had to be closed for prolonged periods. Furthermore, the life of such bitumen-based partial repairs is limited on account of the changes in weather conditions and the volume of traffic.
WestWood has developed several rapid and economical solutions for the refurbishment of road surfaces, and has already carried out many refurbishment projects with reference sections in recent years. These weather-impervious and highly reactive PMMA products were specifically developed for the rapid refurbishment and reprofiling of damaged motorway surfacing, even in difficult weather conditions. After approx. 15 minutes the surface is rain-proof and can be
reopened to traffic after just 1 hour.
The user-friendly resin is ready for use and only needs to be stirred on site. Another advantage is that the system can still be applied in conditions of high humidity and at low temperatures from -5 bis +35 degrees.
