Where to use?

  • Horizontal cracks in asphaltic roads
  • Transverse and longitudinal joints
  • Trench reinstatements
  • Patch repairs
  • Drain or manhole frames

Preparation

Ensure that the joint or crack is dry, clean and free from dust, fuel and oil spillage. For best results use when ambient temperature is 15°C or above. Gripstrip should not be applied to cracks wider than 10mm unless the crack has been pre-filled with approved material such as Jointfill A2, Jointfill N1 & N2 or Leoseal R.

Application

Gripstrip is applied to the road surface manually or with a specially adapted trolley. It is self-adhesive with the underside protected by peel off backing paper.

Once laid heavy foot pressure should be applied to assist adhesion. Applied Gripstrip will become embedded through trafficking.

Coverage

Each roll will overband 25 linear metres.

Packaging

Gripstrip is supplied in a box with 2 x 40mm x 25m rolls.

Storage

Keep in dry store under cover.

Standards

Gripstrip has a skid resistance value of ≥60 and therefore complies with the requirements of the New Roads and Street Works Act.
