Instaband Thermoplastic Overbanding Tape

UltraCrete Instaband  is a thermoplastic, skid resistant overbanding and crack sealant tape designed for application to asphalt roads to prevent water ingress and progressive fretting, which leads to road structural failure. Instaband is supplied in 5 metre rolls, 35mm wide (40mm wide when installed) x 3mm depth for easy handling.

- Carefully clean the surface

- Preheat the surface making sure it is completely free from moisture.

The first step in repairing or sealing with the tape is to thoroughly clean the surface to be sealed. This is preferably done with a brush.

Heat the surface

Before laying the Instaband, the surface must be preheated so that the tape becomes more flexible and sticks where you want it.

When the surface is warm the Instaband is rolled out on to the road surface, beaded side up. The beads create friction to minimize slipping.
