1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
Armourband® is a stress absorbing overbanding system for sealing reflective cracks in asphalt and concrete pavements. In service the system offers high tensile strength without bleeding or deformation under vehicle movements.
Armourband® is a polymer modified bituminous compound containing fibre reinforcement, aggregates and adhesion agents which resists deformation and has the strength and flexibility to limit the reoccurrence of cracking.

Fibre Reinforcement – Aggregate – Extender & Adhesion Agent.
STORAGE: Store in a cool dry place preferably under cover and away from direct sunlight.
PACKAGING: Silicone or Poly-silicone lined sacks – 20 / 25kgs Net.
5. SAFE HANDLING PRECAUTIONS:
* Do not exceed the maximum safe heating temperature.
* Do not allow the hot material to come into contact with water as the product will react violently.
* Always wear the recommended protective clothing – see below.
6. FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARDS:
Upper – Not applicable.
Lower – Not applicable.
Small Fire – Foam / Water Fog.
Large Fire – Foam / Dry Powder / CO² / Sand / Earth.
Not dangerous for supply.
7. ACUTE HEALTH HAZARDS & ADVICE:
Armourband® presents no acute health hazard at ambient temperature. However, as these materials are normally handled at elevated temperatures when their physical state changes to a liquid, the bitumens present in these products give of fumes which are undesirable to inhale as very small quantities of HYDROGEN SULPHIDE may be present in the bitumen.
RECOMMENDED PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:
Overalls, Goggles / Visor and Closed Safety Boots when handling hot product.
Inhalation of the vapours should be avoided.
Remove the affected person to fresh aid. If breathing has stopped administer artificial respiration. Give cardiac massage if necessary. If the person is breathing but unconscious place in the recovery position. Obtain medical assistance immediately.
Bituminous products present no acute health hazards to the skin other than burning when handling at elevated temperatures.
Flush the contaminated skin with cold water. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE BITUMEN. Cover the burn with a sterile dressing. Do not apply any medication to the affected part. Obtain medical attention immediately.
Contact with fumes may cause irritation and redness.
Irrigate with copious amounts of water – 10 / 20 minutes and seek medical advice immediately.
Avoid contact with the skin by use of suitable protective clothing.
Not classified as dangerous for transportation.
