While there are a variety of coring tools available, the key element in the pavement reinstatement process is the bonding compound used to restore the repaired roadway.To be effective it must be able to bond the core to the remaining intact slab of pavement in a manner that allows the road to again perform as a system and to share the effect of traffic loading.
It must also generate sufficient bond strength to quickly meet relevant AASHTO standards and allow the road to be opened to traffic as soon as possible.
Utilibond™ is the only specially formulated and engineered bonding compound designed to be used for permanently reinstating pavement cores in asphalt and concrete roads, sidewalks and other paved surfaces.
A ready-to-use (just add water), fast-setting, high-strength waterproof bonding agent, Utilibond™ is non-toxic and comes in two colors (Aged Asphalt and Natural Concrete).
Utilibond™ was developed and field-proven over 10 years by the Consumers Gas Company (now Enbridge Gas Distribution), one of North America's oldest and largest local gas distribution companies with over 1.5 million customers, as part of its innovative rotary coring and keyhole pavement reinstatement program.
