Surface Treatments

Our road network is one of our country’s greatest assets with over 260,000 miles of paved roads across the UK. The condition of this asset is critical to the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.

Roadtechs is one of the leading manufacturers and installers of Specialist Surface Treatment Systems in the UK. 

We combine innovation, quality, performance and experience with robust solutions and first-class engineering to restore, extend and enhance the life of existing roads and parking areas – providing financial, operational, environmental and safety benefits.

Our innovative Surface Treatments – Reclamite® and CRF Surface Sealant – offer penetrative, restorative and durable solutions to enable the lifecycle extension of existing ‘good’ roads. 

All three of our solutions provide up to 5 years additional life from the surface and are all repeatable. 

Extending the life of a road network not only reduces the pressure on maintenance budgets, by offering a substantial whole life cost reduction of up to 40%, it also supports environmental policies and improves public perception.

With no requirement for quarried aggregate, surface treatments such as these offer an efficient and sustainable solution to maintaining the highways infrastructure.

 

Environmental

Reduce carbon footprint by at least 90% compared to traditional repair methods

No landfill (no-dig process)

Largely automated process – minimising vehicle emissions


Financial

Whole life cost reduction of 40%

Value for money – keep green roads green / treat more of your network

Safety/Operational

Fast & efficient – minimises disruption to the traveling public

Minimal noise – less impact on local residents

Primarily a mechanical process with minimal human interaction – reducing H&S risks to both our operatives and the public

Reclamite®

An innovative, formulated emulsion derived from the petrochemical industry and brought to the highways industry by Roadtechs. Reclamite is a spray applied rejuvenation treatment which penetrates and chemically modifies the bitumen binder in the asphalt, reversing the detrimental effects caused by oxidation and weathering, preventing the formation of cracks and defects, and prolonging the life of the asphalt. It is the ONLY penetrative bitumen rejuvenator with a BBA/HAPAS certificate in the UK. 

Reclamite is efficient to install meaning treated areas are quickly reopened to traffic. Suitable for most asphalt surfaces, it restores the original properties of the bitumen with no need to adjust ironworks or refresh line markings (if they are in good condition), saving time, minimising disruption, and enabling maintenance budgets to go further.

RHiNOPHALT ®

A preventative maintenance treatment for asphalt which preserves, protects, and extends the life of the asphalt infrastructure. This SET solution seals the surface and protects the existing bitumen from the impact of oxidization due to weathering and UV degradation.

RHiNOPHALT also offers efficient application and restores the original properties of the bitumen with no need to adjust ironworks. It can be applied during night closures to further minimise disruption to road networks and enable revenue budgets to go further.

CRF Surface Sealant

A flexible and resilient cold spray bitumen emulsion solution to create a sealed surface and provide an economical alternative to conventional wear course seals. CRF Surface Sealant fills the voids in the surface which also improves road user experience and reduces noise pollution.

It maintains skid resistance to help maintain road safety levels, and the new bitumen seal on the surface reduces reactive maintenance requirements. It can be applied to pavements with early stage deterioration such as ravelling, loss of aggregate or brittleness. As with Reclamite, there is no need to adjust ironworks which saves further time and additional disruption.
