UltraCrete | Tough Patch Rapid® helps fix Cornwall’s roads
Highway, engineering and construction specialists, Cormac Solutions Ltd., have used UltraCrete Tough Patch Rapid® to repair a number of potholes throughout Cornwall.
Formed in 2012, Cormac Solutions Ltd. are one of the most highly regarded and trusted companies in the South West. Committed to delivering cost-effective and innovative solutions to their community, Cormac Solutions Ltd. were interested in sourcing an alternative reactive pothole repair solution and so East Region Highways Area Manager, worked alongside UltraCrete to carry out product trials of Tough Patch Rapid®.
The UltraCrete trials
These trials began in August 2017 and started with a patch repair at Cormac’s Bodmin distribution centre yard before being rolled out across the rest of the county.
During the autumn and winter months, the patch repair has been fully submerged in water, subjected to freezing temperatures and received constant trafficking from heavy goods vehicles visiting the busy distribution centre. These extreme conditions were no problem for Tough Patch Rapid® and when the patch was assessed 6 months later, they were delighted to see the repair was still in place and showed no signs of cracking or breaking out.
As a result of these extremely successful product trials, UltraCrete are pleased to confirm that Tough Patch Rapid® is now a staple reactive repair product across the entire Cornish network.
Tough Patch Rapid® is a hard wearing, fast setting, hybrid pothole repair solution that withstands extreme trafficking. Quick and easy to apply, Tough Patch Rapid® can be used to repair defects in pavements, driveways, car parks and on high speed roads – it even provides a first time permanent repair in wheel turning locations such as junctions, traffic lights and roundabouts.
Ready to use straight from the bag or bucket, Tough Patch Rapid® eliminates many of the risks associated with hot asphalt, such as extremely hot temperatures and dangerous fumes, and can be trafficked instantly – so costly traffic management can be removed swiftly and you can move on to your next job quickly.
