Road and Bridge Repair Tips

Rule number one: Always use our blending chart (located on resin container) to determine the amount of Premier Road and Bridge Repair product needed for the repair. Be conservative and try not to make more slurry than you need. You can always add to an under-filled repair.

  • Pour the Premier Road and Bridge Repair resin into a measuring container. Be as precise as possible.
  • Using the blending chart, determine the amount of catalyst required.
  • Add the catalyst to the resin in the measuring container and blend well.
  • Brush or roll a portion of the mixture onto the surface that needs to be repaired.
  • Pour the remaining mixture into mixing bucket and slowly add the dried aggregate and blend. Continue adding aggregate until the desired consistency is reached. For the best results, do not add more than three times the aggregate by volume than the resin mixture. For vertical and overhead repairs, the slurry should be thick (maximum sand). For crack filling, self-leveling or holes that are craggy or well textured leave the mixture thinner to insure bonding to the entire surface.
  • Trowel the material into the repair area. Remember that Premier Road and Bridge Repair will not swell nor shrink in the hole. Trowel the repair flush to the surface. Note: This is especially important on roadways and bridge decks in locations where snow plowing is likely.
  • Finish the repaired surface by broadcasting aggregate generously across the entire area.
  • Under normal temperature and humidity conditions you should expect the repair to harden enough for traffic within 30 minutes or less.
  • When forming is needed for curb or other vertical repairs, coat any surface that will be in contact with your repair material. Coating your forms properly (with cooking oil or cooking spray) will ensure that your repair is not disturbed when the form is removed. In the case of forms, a good form release agent is also okay.
  • Forms are needed for only a short period of time and can be made from any material. For example, old traffic signs, wood, plastic and sheet metal all make good form material. The wonderful thing about forms is they only need to be propped-up, meaning there is no need for them to be nailed or clamped.
  • For easy cleanup, coat your tools with Pam cooking spray (although vegetable oil can also be used, too). We recommend to coat (not soak) your measuring vessels, mixing pails, trowels etc. for easy post job clean-up. Be sure to wipe all your equipment as soon you’re finished using it.
