Products for Road Repairs from BituChem

Very hot temperatures, freezing, flooding, and accidental spillages can all damage the surface of our roads. They require reactive road repairs for emergency resurfacing and sealing, preventing the ingress of water into the sub layers of the road structure, which in turn halts the need for a more invasive and more expensive fix.

A common problem, particularly during the winter, is the pothole. The AirPatch system is an innovative mobile solution which enables multiple pothole repairs to be carried out by a single operative and their spray tanker.

When bigger and more complex road repairs are needed, large sections of asphalt are laid. Contractors use Hot Joint Paint to paint the vertical joints and seal the surface joints together, creating a fully weatherproof road. The hot joint paint can be applied using a spray tanker . It is a highly efficient method of application while greatly reducing the risks by removing the need for personnel to be in the road or directly handling hot materials.
