S&P Asphalt reinforcement
Fibre reinforcement grids for asphalt surfaces
For detailed safety information it is recommended to seek advice in the current safety data sheet.
Arrange the S&P C-Laminate on a clean surface (workbench) and clean the unlabelled side with a white cloth and S&P Cleaner. Wait at least 5 minutes to let the surface completely dry. Using the S&P adhesive-forming unit apply the well mixed S&P Resin 220 onto the S&P C-Laminate in a ‘roof’ shape. The edges of the S&P C-Laminate need an adhesive thickness of approximately 1 mm and the centre approximately 3 mm.
The S&P C-Laminate should be fixed with light finger pressure onto the prepared substrate and then pressed with a special roller until the adhesive squeezes out on both sides of the S&P C-Laminate. The excess adhesive is wiped off and can’t be reused. The adhesive layer thickness should be approximately 2 mm thick. Adhesive residue on the facing surface of the laminates should be removed before the adhesive is allowed to cure.
Thanks to the excellent resistance of the adhesive, no tools are required to support the S&P C-Laminate during the curing period.
At intersections of two or more S&P C-Laminate, the already applied S&P C-Laminate is to be cleaned with S&P Cleaner. When gluing more than one S&P C-Laminate above one another, both sides must be completely clean. After the curing of the S&P Resin 220, the bond is tested by gently tapping and listening out for hollow areas.
To test the adhesion of the S&P C-Laminate with the substrate, we recommend to stick one or more test S&P C-Laminate pieces and to conduct at least 3 pull-off tests (according to EN 1542).
Near surface (slot-applied) application of S&P C-Laminate
The clean and dry slots are filled with the homogenous S&P Resin 220 mixture with a putty knife or gun. In horizontal slots, it is also possible to pour in S&P Resin 55 HP. One or two lengths of S&P C-Laminate are inserted into the slot. The excess adhesive is removed with a spatula, to ensure that an even surface is achieved.
