Concrete Solutions® are KiwiRail certified for the application of MC-Ballastbond.

MC-Ballastbond enables gravel areas and ballast beds to be quickly installed and durably consolidated without undue interruption, even in the case of track-laying operations.

Ballastbond is commonly applied in the following scenarios:

  • Reinforcement of ballast bearing layers by glueing the rock to impair its drainage capacity
  • Improving the positional stability of highly loaded ballast along railway tracks, e.g. at lane crossings, in curves, at shunts
  • Protection of ballast shoulders during conversion work and track renewals
  • Bonding and sealing of gravel and split surfaces to increase the load capacity
