Type 2 Asphaltic Plug Joints in accordance with BD33/94
USL offers three asphaltic plug joint systems, all in accordance
with BD33/94 standard for use on all classes of highway
FEBA - is a standard asphaltic plug joint which
provides a flexible, waterproof joint with excellent ride quality
for users and noiseless characteristics for minimal impact on the
environment. Asphaltic plug joints are recognised as being suitable
for a maximum design movement of +/-20mm horizontally and +/-1.5mm
vertically and are ideal for use on bridges with low traffic
volumes such as B roads.
FEBA HM - is a high modulus asphaltic plug
joint suitable for low to medium movement of +/-20mm on heavily
trafficked highway bridges. FEBA HM is a special blend of bitumen,
polymers, fillers and a surface active agent, formulated to combine
good fluidity at process temperatures with low temperature
flexibility and ambient temperature slump control. The use of
basalt aggregates (BS EN 13043) ensures excellent load bearing
capacity and high resistance to wheel tracking. This amalgamation
of a highly interlocking aggregate allows the system to provide
excellent anti rutting characteristics.
FEBA HC - A bituminious asphaltic plug joint
which has been developed for use in Hot Climates.
Please note: Design, construction and installation criteria
remains the same for all joint types.
