A polymer modified bitumen strip for sealing vertical joints in highway construction and maintenance to prevent the ingress of water. For use on asphalt to asphalt, asphalt to concrete and asphalt to steel joints, it prevents further deterioration by sealing out water, chemical pollutants, weed seeds and other pollutants/contaminants. Providing a uniform flexible seal across the joint face, Premband™ is ideal for base and wearing course joints and can withstand movement from traffic load and thermal changes.
Premband™ has now been in use for many years in Europe and fully complies with The Highways Agency Specification for Highways Works. It is suitable for use on both concrete or asphalt road joints. It can be applied with a gas torch by hand or by machine on larger projects.
