Case Study

Project: Sidney Street
Sidney Street
Client: Cambridge CC / Atkins Global
Contractor: In-house
Site: 1,200m² CBP
Resiblock Product: Resiblock ‘22’
Date: June 2013

The Site

Sidney Street is located in the centre of the shopping precinct in this University City. The existing yorkstone flag paving adjacent to the shops was subject to HGV trafficking during the evening and early morning delivery windows. The paving was unable to withstand these lateral loads and was failing, leading to tripping hazards.

The Challenge

The Solution:

During a CPD presentation to the Cambridge CC highways team and representatives from their term contractors, Atkins Global it was realised that an application of Resiblock 22 (a one pack moisture cured specialist pre-polymer urethane jointing sand stabiliser) would ensure no sand loss and it was subsequently specified. Resiblock 22 has been utilised to prevent jointing sand erosion in the most arduous of circumstances including jet thrust from aircraft movement on aprons.

The Benefits:

Easy application and requires no specialist labour; Resiblock 22 binds the jointing sand preventing its removal from both natural and manmade forces. It will inhibit weed and grass growth from the joint whilst providing a significant degree of stain protection. Once cured, it remains fully elastomeric thereby accommodating the small elastic deflections incorporated in the pavement design.
