A new age of packaging

UltraCrete have always been passionate about exploring advances in highways technology and how they can implement these improved practices to benefit their loyal customers. With  this in mind, they are delighted to present new and improved premium packaging their world renowned Instant Road Repair 6mm and 10mm grades.

Made from foil and complete with an integrated valve to draw out excess air, Instant Road Repair’s new packaging is completely waterproof and keeps asphalt as fresh as the day it was manufactured.

This innovative one-way valve also ensures that, once filled with product, air doesn’t become trapped inside and packaging won’t pop open when in transit.

Instant Road Repair’s state-of-the-art packaging provides a barrier against external moisture and air penetration preventing the product from deteriorating, resulting in an extremely pliable product which pours easily from the bag and boasts improved mobility during application – even in the winter months!

This robust bag has greater resistance to damage and has an extended shelf life of 6 months – all at no extra cost to their customers.

The new 6mm Instant Road Repair foil bags  are now available, with the 10mm bag available from September. For more information on this ‘new age of packaging’, Instant Road Repair and the other materials in UltraCrete’s range of highway maintenance repair materials, please contact their team of experts by email or by calling 01827 254402.
