When minor faults
in concrete carriageways and aircraft pavements
are left to continuing effects of water ingress,
freeze-thaw cycles and increased traffic volumes,
the result is inevitably an area of spalling which
rapidly deteriorates and becomes a hazard.
Repairing these damaged areas with rigid cementitious
or epoxy mortars are not only very expensive but,
all too often, have a short life span. Filling
with hot rolled asphalt or other blacktop materials
can only be a stop-gap measure. These time consuming
repair methods also involve lengthy lane closures
and costly traffic management.
