Our Bond Coating & Vertical Joint Sealing Services

Having begun life in the 1860s, Henry Williams & Son has, over the last 150 years, seen technical advancements across every area of the business.

Even over the last decade, improvements in industry-wide health, safety, and quality standards have raised demand for vertical jointing operations and machine-applied combination bond coating.

In particular, as a leading UK-based surfacing contractor, we now have an increased responsibility to machine-apply polymer modified bond coatings to the prescribed rates of spread due to ISO BS 594987:2015 + A1:2017 regulations.

Here at Henry Williams & Son, we manage a variety of emulsion tankers, with capacities ranging from 12,000 litres for carriageway sprayers to 200 litres for footway sprayers. These tankers can spray at the designated rates of spread and in widths between 0.20 and 4.50 metres.

Our combination sprayers not only apply bond coatings but also spray directly onto the vertical face of surface courses and/or binder courses a hot 50-pen polymer modified bitumen.

This approach provides a safer alternative to the more traditional hand application of hot bitumen as well as ensuring an even and thorough distribution of binder along the joint.

It is also possible to over-band and spray the free-edge of verge-side carriageways to seal and protect.
