Leverkusen, 25th September 2018 – DEKOTEC GmbH, leading manufacturer of products for corrosion protection and road construction, is delighted about extremely positive feedback from customers about successful use of TOK®-Band A and TOK®-Band SK, two years after their introduction.

The customers confirm achieving huge time savings and perfect processing. Quick and efficient application is particularly essential for the repair of road surfaces, which are exposed to the most extreme loads, but still have to meet tight deadlines for reopening and remain within budget. The TOK® Bands by DEKOTEC are a considerable asset in these situations.

“There’s nothing else like TOK®-Band A. My guys don’t want to use anything else now”, says Marc Neumann, Site Manager for A-Tec Asphaltbau GmbH, during the installation of miles of cable trays on behalf of Deutsche Telekom, Germany.

The benefits are clear: the bitumen joint tape can be activated in seconds and does not require a primer. Storage as a hazardous substance is no longer necessary. Marc Neumann values the time saving: “We only need to apply a light flame to the TOK®-Band A and it’s done - without primer. We can install it in double-quick time. 100 metres only takes us two to three minutes. It really is twice as fast."

No primer is required with TOK®-Band SK either. As before, the self-adhesive tape can also be laid cold, without using a gas burner. Konrad Schindler, Senior Site Manager for asphalt construction at Richard Schulz Tiefbau GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, is convinced: “We’re pleased with it. The new TOK®-Band SK is much easier to apply, as it’s smoother and softer. It can be applied anywhere. From small projects to large construction sites - we use it everywhere”.

This quick and easy application enables huge savings to be made in both time and money. The construction site can be reopened soon after completion of the work and traffic congestion reduced swiftly.
