Microtrenching is an increasingly common way to deploy and protect broadband networks. However, traditional surfacing products won't work to reinstate these narrow trenches since there’s no room for adequate compaction of the infill. SAFETRACK® MTI was designed specifically to infill roadways after microtrenching is performed. It seals the trench to protect it from water ingress, supports the sides of the trench to prevent collapse, contributes to the protection of the buried cable and provides a vehicle trafficable surface.
This liquid-applied reinstatement resin infill self-consolidates, quickly taking the shape of its micro-trench to help reduce labor costs. It cures in less than 40 minutes to form a protective layer stronger than asphalt's cohesive strength. This lasting bond protects underground infrastructure amid freeze/thaws and vehicle movement.
SAFETRACK® MTI is applied cold, eliminating the added cost, permitting and worries of working with open flames which can damage the network cables.
In addition, the system was designed with added features to safeguard the costly underground cables once installed. For example, its bright yellow markings alert contractors to the presence of fiber optic cables. This helps prevent damage to fibers during future road work.
- Delivers a strong, durable bond
- Stands up under high traffic loads
- Easily applied by hand or pump
- SRV (Skid Resistance Value) and HAPAS (Highway Authorities Product Approval Scheme) approved
