IronGuard (IG) is an HAPAS approved revolutionary, polymer based, bituminous repair system developed for the reinstatement of all types of ironwork on highways and airfields in asphalt and concrete pavements. Producing a permanent repair, IronGuard is a 100% on-site process and requires no subsequent maintenance.
The HAPAS approved system comprises high quality bedding mortar, interlocking, mono-polymer bricks (BS5834 and EN124), polymer modified mastic grout and H grade cold polymer mastic asphalt blocks (BS1447:1988). The cold blocks are designed to absorb the heat from the hot liquid grout whilst forming a monolithic structure with the mono-polymer bricks, which are in turn supporting the frame and cover. The system cools to an ambient temperature faster than other hot applied systems allowing repairs to be completed and the area to be re-opened within restricted working periods.
Pre-coated chippings or 2-5mm aggregates >60 PSV are applied to the finished surface to provide a non-skid surfacing compliant with UK legislative specifications.
IronGuard can incorporate recycled coarse aggregate. It is void less, requires no compaction and in many cases can be trafficked within an hour of completion.
When using IronGuard there is no waste and no need to collect hot materials from the asphalt plant.
IronGuard is suitable for use on all inset ironwork including manholes, gullies.
