New TOK<sup>®</sup>-bitumen joint tapes

New TOK®-bitumen joint tapes

Leverkusen, 15 January 2017 - DEKOTEC GmbH, the leading provider of corrosion prevention products and innovative sealing technology, launches a range of innovative new products that will mark a decisive improvement in the repair of damage to asphalt roads. The launch, on 15 January 2017, marks exactly 40 years since the first TOK® bitumen joint tapes for road construction were first brought to market.  

For the first time, the application of TOK®-Band  for sealing joints and seams is possible without any primer. The products can now be applied directly to clean asphalt edges, so that time-consuming priming and air-drying is no longer necessary. The innovative TOK®-Band A can be applied within seconds, instead of the intensive heating procedure that has been the norm until now. This cuts the time required for the application of bitumen joint tapes in half, compared to the usual melting procedure.

“We want products that can be applied safely and quickly on construction sites, particularly with the ever-increasing need for an efficient transport system”, says Max Wedekind, Managing Director of DEKOTEC GmbH, Germany. “This makes us all the more proud that we have been able to continually bring innovative new impulses to market since 1977. With the new TOK® products, for the first time there is no need to laboriously and time-consumingly prime edges. The application is quick and easy - and that helps our customers.”

Further, the TOK®-Band SK is a proven reliable self-adhesive bitumen joint tape; the TOK®-Band A can be repeatedly activated even at longer intervals; and the new TOK®-Band SK N2 is extraordinarily flexible particularly at low temperatures. All TOK® bitumen joint tapes have been tested and approved in accordance with the latest high quality standard ZTV-Fug StB 15.
