Highways & civils (IKO Road) systems

The IKO Road portfolio offers high performing bituminous road surfacing and repair solutions that are essential to ensuring road networks remain open. The installation can be rapid and fast cooling, which allows for a quick reopening of the area to traffic.

The flexibility and long lasting durability of IKO Road’s surfacing and repair solutions are paramount to avoiding follow up visits that cost extra time and money.

Mastic asphalt forms the basis of the IKO Road systems designed for ironwork reinstatements (IKO Pacopatch), crack repairs, flexible bridge joints, transition joints and complete bridge deck surfacing (IKO Permatrack). These solutions can be used for emergency repairs, as well as reactive and preventative maintenance.

With the number of vehicles on our roads increasing, it is crucial to use high performing, long lasting road repair and maintenance systems and products from IKO. The low life cycle cost and durability of mastic asphalt makes it ideal for strict budgets and deadlines. It can be used on large continuous areas or small patch repairs.
