Are Your Roads Bonded?

Following the successful REAL Bond Coat Video launched in 2017 an additional supporting note has been published identifying the performance benefits of using Bond Coats to bind the road layers together. A winter of high rainfall and cold temperatures has resulted in further deterioration to our roads and more pot holes having to be filled. The correct use of bond coat will help reduce this problem and extend the structural life of the road. See the “Publications” page.
