Case Study

Project: Durham Tees Valley Airport Apron
Durham Tees Valley Airport Apron
Client: Peel Airports Limited
Contractor: Bardon Contracting
Site: Durham
Resiblock Product: Resiblock ‘22’
Date: May 2010


Durham Tees Valley Airport handles over two hundred thousand people off to their holidays every year, which makes for a busy Aircraft Apron. The requirement was to protect the concrete block paving from fuel infiltration and seal/stabilise the joints, preventing sand erosion from aircraft movement.

The Solution:

Resiblock ‘22’ is a commercial grade joint stabiliser which prevents both water and fuel infiltration but additionally stabilises the jointing sand, preventing erosion from cleaning regimes and aircraft movement. Once cured it remains fully elastomeric thereby accommodating the small elastic deflections incorporated within the pavement design. Bardon Contracting installed over 8000 m2 of paving simultaneously sealed with Resiblock ‘22’.

The Benefits:

Resiblock ‘22’ is a specialist prepolymer urethane (SPPU) which prevents the erosion of jointing sand. The areas sealed were completed in controlled sections in a few hours and heavy traffic was reinstated shortly afterwards, ensuring minimum disruption to the airport.
