1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
Armourjoint® BP02B is an elastomeric polymer modified bituminous bridgejoint binder, mixed with graded aggregate to form a flexible asphaltic plug joint in asphalt and concrete carriageways.
Armourjoint® BP02B can accommodate a movement range of ± 30mm in a standard APJ installation of 500mm width. In service the system is resistant to plastic flow and deformation at surface temperatures of 60°C providing a tough, resilient and flexible APJ suitable for locations where heavy trafficking is encountered.

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. ACUTE HEALTH HAZARDS & ADVICE:
Armourjoint® BP02B 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:
High Visibility Jacket, Hard Safety Helmet, Overalls, Goggles / Visor, Armlet Gloves and Closed Safety Boots AT ALL TIMES when handling hot product.
Inhalation of the vapours should be avoided.
INHALATION FIRST AID:
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.
SKIN CONTACT FIRST AID:
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.
EYE CONTACT FIRST AID:
Irrigate with copious amounts of water for 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.
