The concrete access road to a Toyota dealership in Bracknell had become broken and uneven. Nike Construction, who are responsible for all maintenance work for the dealership group, were asked to find a long lasting repair product which could be laid without the dealership closing and with minimum disruption to customers.
The technical department of Ronacrete recommended RonaRoad EcoPatch Pothole Repair because it is easy to use and can be trafficked immediately. RonaRoad EcoPatch Pothole Repair is used straight from bucket or sack with no mixing required; it then just needs to be tamped and is then ready for traffic immediately.
Speed is not the only benefit of RonaRoad EcoPatch Pothole Repair. It can be laid at very low temperature and in the wet, ensuring that road repairs can be carried out in the most unfavourable of conditions. Most pothole repair materials rely on the use of cutback bitumens which contain volatile oils such as kerosene. RonaRoad EcoPatch Pothole Repair does not contain petroleum based solvents, which attack asphalt and weaken the bond between asphalt and repair, one of the major reasons traditional pothole products fail and are therefore not permanent. RonaRoad EcoPatch Pothole Repair contains plant extracts which do not act aggressively on asphalt and are friendlier to the environment.
RonaRoad EcoPatch has a zero VOC softener and no petroleum cutback, a 12 months bag shelf life (compared to one month on traditional road repair products) and no primer or over banding is required. It can be used in very cold weather (is workable down to -25ºC) and can be laid in the wet. As it is truly permanent (unlike many other products which claim to be), this reduces whole life costings.
