Spray Tanker Services are specialist road surfacing contractors offering specialist binder applications, road spraying and resurfacing
Using hot or cold sprayed bitumen emulsion or a polymer modified bitumen emulsion, our bond and tack coats provide a thin adhesive film between any existing road and a new surface. This reduces the risk of slippage between the two layers of road surface. Due to the optimised contact between the two layers, it also allows any stresses to be uniformly distributed.
Such bond coats can be used in road surface patching where priming and waterproofing are required. They’re also essential for overlaying cement concrete.
We apply bond and tack coats using lorry mounted sprayers to achieve a complete and even coverage. We expertly select the rate of spread depending on the nature of the surface.
Our tanker sprayers range from 7.5 tonne GVW 2.5 tonne capacity up to 32 tonne GVW 18 tonne capacity. They all have adjustable width spray bars up to 4.8 metres and are available with a lance.
Lorry mounted dual purpose bond coat sprayers with vertical hot pitch joint painting arms. This removes the need for extended manual applications by “a man with a can”. Rotating pitch heads enable both; free edge sealing and over banding to be carried out safely and efficiently using the machine.
We have a variety of combination tankers ranging from 12ton GVW 3ton capacity up to 26ton GVW 11ton capacity.
All tankers are calibrated in accordance with BS1707:2018, accredited by UKAS, and undergo regular carpet tile tests to confirm requested spray rates are achieved.
During the process of road surface dressing our specialist teams spray bitumen emulsion onto the road surface before then immediately covering the emulsion with aggregate chippings.
The bitumen emulsion comprehensively seals the existing road surface whilst securing the chippings to the new surface. This prevents water from penetrating the road surface and provides a safe, hardwearing, heavy load-carrying road cover.
We only use premium quality aggregate chippings that add texture to roads worn smooth from traffic, helping to prevent accidents related to skidding. Our aggregate chippings are hardwearing and will resist becoming smooth again through everyday use of the road.
Whilst surface dressing doesn’t add strength to a road surface, it will extend the safe use of a road and prevent further damage.
Based on the firmness and durability and the general use and traffic type of the road you need to surface; Spray Tanker Services will consult TRL – Road Note 39 to design the appropriate road dressing for you. We will also take into account the Polished Stone Value (PSV) and Aggregate Abrasion Value (AAV) of the aggregate and the possibility of the use of an enhanced polymer modified binder. This will then determine the amount and rate of spray bitumen and the size of aggregate chippings required.
