  • Protects your highway asset.

Hole filling with BBA HAPAS approved materials

Removing metal road studs from the road leaves a significant hole in the carriageway that needs to be filled.
BBA HAPAS approved Jointmaster approved materials are used  to fill the hole, seal the edges and eliminate voids.
Applied as a molten material at 180 °c, the sealant pours into the hole sealing all faces.
The material is rigorously tested by BBA under HAPAS and is approved for rut resistance, skid resistance, adhesion and more.
Material cures quickly, allowing site to be opened to traffic at the end of the shift
Our crews can remove the existing studs for you
Road markings can be replaced at the end of the shift
BBA HAPAS approved
BBA HAPAS approved materials have been tested to comply with certain requirements, such as rut resistance, flexibility, skid resistance, texture depth, elongation and adhesion.
Filling a cats eye
Once the existing road stud is removed (which we can do if required), all defective and loose material is blown away with a hot air lance to remove any lingering loose materials and liven up any binder left in the road surface.
Jointmaster material is then poured into the hole to leave a smooth level finish. The material is a hot applied (180⁰c) polymerised bituminous material with added sand, aggregates and fibres. This material flows into the bottom of the hole, filling the void, sealing the edges and providing a watertight seal.
A dressing of high PSV (polished stone value) aggregate is applied to the surface, sticking to the Jointmaster material to leave a skid resistant finish.
The finished job is left to cool (anything from 20 mins to 1 hour) before a final sweep removes any excess aggregate and the road is reopened to traffic.
