Performance of Edge Cutting and Sealing Methods
ISBN: 1 84057 143 8
A review was made of the edge cutting and sealing methods currently in use for the reinstatement of vertical edges of highway openings. The Norton Clipper wet floor saw and the Stihl hand-held saw were shown to be more effective than the other cutting methods used. The TRL trial showed that the cold and spray applied edge sealing products were fast and easy to use and produced a good quality finish. The tensile and shear bond strength of the sealants were tested in a controlled laboratory environment. These tests indicated that the sealants fail in different ways so care must be taken when selecting a sealant for use.
