UltraCrete Instaband ECO is a thermoplastic, skid resistant over-banding and crack sealant tape designed for application to asphalt roads to prevent water ingress and progressive fretting, which leads to road structural failure.
Instaband ECO is supplied in 5 metre rolls, 35mm wide (40mm wide when installed) x 3mm depth for easy handling. It has an anti-skid SRV of 60 and conforms to the requirements of S11.7 (SRV minimum 55) of the specification for the Reinstatement of Openings in Highways (SROH).
Instaband ECO is easy to apply on asphalt surfaces, always ensure that the area of application is clean, dry and free from dust, chemicals and any significant oil substances. If application to concrete is required the area should be primed. Please ensure that the area has completely cooled before the primer is applied.
Preheat the surface making sure it is completely free from moisture. Remove Instaband ECO from its protective wrapping and roll out on to the road surface, beaded side up. Once in place, heat the Instaband ECO with a propane torch. The heat should be applied from a distance of approximately 200-400mm (8”-16”) from the material. Heat in a slow even sweeping motion making sure you do not spot-heat any area, as this may scorch the material causing discolouration. Instaband ECO must be heated until the material starts to bubble and melt. Depending on air temperature, Instaband ECO will cool down and harden within 5-10 minutes of installation. When this has occurred, check for correct installation by trying to lift parts of the material at the edges using a knife or a chisel. If this can be lifted, simply reapply heat until adequate bonding has occurred.
When the weather is warmer and the road temperature higher, the setting time for the material may be slightly longer. Do not use Instaband ECO® when it is raining or snowing. Ensure surfaces treated with salt or de-icers are fully washed as Instaband ECO® will not bond with these substances. Do not unpack more material than is necessary, as materials will harden when exposed to UV rays. Take care in excessively cold weather, as the material will become brittle.
