Say goodbye to holes in the road with PHB™ – Pothole Binder
Worn and damaged roads are unfortunately not a rare sight. Potholes, cracks, and other damages on the road can be caused by a number of factors including water intrusion, heavy vehicles, as well as seasonal temperature changes.
In order to keep the roads safe, it is critical to keep up with proper maintenance. This not only helps limit the risk of extended damages, but also the need for more extensive and costly repairs. Most importantly, regular repairs prolong the lifetime of the road and increase safety.
Potholes, for example, are more than just a nuisance. They can be extremely dangerous to drivers and cyclists alike – and with the combination of an increasing backlog of unrepaired potholes and the cold and wet weather that we have experienced so far in 2021, potholes are becoming an ever-increasing concern.
Unfortunately, the fear of huge costs and long traffic shut-downs can make it seem like an immense project to get these damages fixed. But fear not, it does not have to have to be that way!
At Geveko Markings, we believe that road and surface repair is a necessary means to maintain a safe infrastructure – and therefore we have developed a solution to make these kinds of repairs easily accessible. With regular repairs of potholes and other surface damages, you help make sure that the roads are safe for all road users.
Using our unique Pothole Binder system (PHB), you can repair potholes in a swift and durable manner before they turn into larger and more costly maintenance projects – saving you both time and money.
PHB is a binder with a strong composition and adhesion to the road surface. The aggregates work as a filler, making it suitable for larger potholes with a general depth of 25 – 60 mm and a maximum of 1m sqm. Together, these two parts make up the Pothole Binder System. Application can take as little as 5-10 minutes, requiring only one person, with a broom and heat torch, to carry out the repair. The PHB system requires no additional products, the PHB binder seals the joints, of the pothole, during application, creating a waterproof seal, so you only require the one system, cutting the costs of the repair. Depending on the size of the application area traffic can usually be re-opened within just 20 minutes. A fast, easy and safety-enhancing road repair for the benefit of all road users.
