UltraCrete drives success on Route Nationale

Instarmac’s French partner, Vert Bleu, have used UltraCrete Permanent Pothole Repair and SCJ to repair damaged asphalt on the high speed Route Nationale 6.

Located between Chambrey and the border of Italy in the Alps, Route Nationale 6 is subjected to severe weather – including high humidity, little exposure to sunlight and freezing temperatures – and is one of the busiest roads in France with cars and heavy goods vehicles regularly travelling across at speeds of 90km/h.

Constant trafficking, combined with severe weathering, had caused severe damage to an area of Route Nationale 6 in Aiguebelle – a beautiful commune in the Auvergne-Rhôbe-Alpes region in south-eastern France.

A repair product was needed that would withstand heavy and constant trafficking and provide a permanent repair to avoid disruption to motorists and the residents of Aiguebelle. After careful research, UltraCrete Permanent Pothole Repair and SCJ seal and tack coat spray were chosen to complete the repair and Vert Bleu are delighted to report that the repair has now been in place for over 12 months and shows no signs of failing.

UltraCrete Permanent Pothole Repair is a cold asphalt technology which has been continuously developed and perfected over the past 40 years to provide a first time permanent pothole repair.

There are many cold lay asphalt repair products available, but Instarmac backs up its technical claims! Strength is gained by compaction, becoming stronger the more traffic travels over it, making it the perfect repair product for heavily trafficked roads, such as  this one.
