STRATOS R1 is a prefabricated and self-adhesive modified bitumen strip used to joint elements on roads and railways.
The installation of STRATOS R1 helps to prevent cracks and water infiltrations. It is anti-root treated, which prevents the appearance of weeds on the curbs / edges.
STRATOS R1 joints existing elements (curbs, manholes…) and the add-on pavement layers in asphalt. It is anti-root treated, which prevents the appearance of weeds on the curbs / edges.
• Easy and quick to install with its self-adhesive side.
• Prefabricated and cold applied without primer.
• Anti-root treatment.
The strip is cold applied, vertically on the element (curb, rail and asphalt etc.) all around the area in which the asphalt will be poured.
The joint will be installed to exceed few millimeters above the finished level.
Below 20°C, it is necessary to slightly preheat the STRATOS R1 strip with a flame or a ‘flame free’ hot air gun. In this case, the product is applied as preheating has progressed.
When pouring hot asphalt, the joint will melt, settle and bond with the existing layer / element.
