An experienced and knowledgeable team using Mastic Asphalt
Garry Sharp founded the company over ten years ago and has worked all over the UK and Europe.
We have been providing a National Contracting Service laying mastic asphalt to a variety of structures such as bridges, car parks, and roofs but also in addition carrying out innovative and unique surfacing repairs relating to :
- Small areas of damaged / rutted surfacing
- Joint Repairs
- Ironwork reinstatement (using the IKO Pacopatch System)
“Latest way we’ve tried using Mastic Asphalt is for mini roundabouts – we’ve found thermosplastic is wearing off within twelve months so we’ve tried with a buff coloured asphalt with added lighter pigments to make it as white then adding Ballotini to give reflectivity – still experimental his third is being done next week we expect this next one to be as good as we’re going to get it and should last a long, long time."
“Thank-you for the works carried out on the A47 in Rutland. The Pacopatch system was initially undertaken as a trial following observations of works undertaken in Northamptonshire. I would like to say that, so far, the results have been very impressive both in terms of application and the finished results.”
“HRA joint splits/fretting – this is where I feel Mastic Asphalt comes into its own – he uses steel forms either side of the split and lays to these – some done in the summer laid in wet joints are still going strong – the mastic is that hot it seems to evaporate the water through itself and bonds itself to the existing – sticks like the proverbial to a blanket – much prettier but still ugly.”
“Sharp Asphalt have done quite a bit of work for me in the last few months and I’m very impressed – General pothole repairs – our in house teams pothole with 10mm bitmac these were failing regularly on a particular road but not one of his have failed so far – It works but isn’t pretty as stated If you would like to have a look”
