Concrete Mender on the Busan Metro Line 4

The Busan Transportation Corporation uses Roadware 10 Minute Concrete Mender to repair the roll-way of Busan Metro Line 4 in South Korea. Metro Line 4 is a rubber-tired line with 14 stations and runs driverless with pneumatic tires on a 6.7 mile (10.8km) concrete track. Concrete Mender is used to structurally repair the cross joints in the track approximately every ten meters.

Concrete Mender is the right product for the job because it has a long service life and cures in about 10 minutes. This allows for minimal down time and keeps the Busan Metro Line 4 running on time with minimal service interruption.

Repair crews of a very limited repair window, The train operates approximately 20 hours per day from 5am to 1am the next day. That leaves a minimal amount of time for maintenance and repair operations. Crews have to be efficient and productive. The fast cure and rapid strength gain of 10 Minute Concrete Mender is well suited for these mission critical applications.
