Instarmac Group Plc

Instarmac is home to UltraCrete, the market leading highways maintenance brand with over 40 years industry experience. Our portfolio includes HAPAS approved, first time permanent reinstatement solutions which offer time and cost saving advantages. Visit us to find out how we can help you reduce your whole life costs.

Instarmac has forged a reputation as one of the industry’s market leaders through continued innovation and commitment. Instarmac works alongside leading industry bodies to develop specifications and approvals for a range of maintenance solutions that help raise standards, reduce risk and save you money in the long term.

In 2002 they helped set the performance criteria of the HA104 specification for bedding mortar for ironwork and were the first manufacturer to develop a cementitious version that fully meets those requirements; Envirobed HA104®. They created the first HAPAS approved thermoplastic overbanding tape Instaband ECO alongside the British Board of Agrément. They also developed the HAPAS standard for pothole repair materials which is widely recognised across the industry.

Many of their highways maintenance products have been HAPAS approved for over 15 years which has required significant work and investment but provides independent evidence that their materials are fit for purpose.

More recently they have worked with the Road Surface Treatment Association and other committee members to create a Code of Practice for Ironwork Systems Installation and Refurbishment. The code promotes best practice and aims to increase the service life of installations through a right first time approach, a method that Instarmac has always strongly endorsed.

Their health and safety processes have been commended by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents from whom they have recently received their 5th consecutive Gold Award.

The awards don’t stop there. They have been placed in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies for eight years and are currently ranked number one in the Midlands Mid Market 300 which recognises top performing businesses. Instarmac also operate their own FORS Silver accredited fleet and are named as a Low-Risk Operator by the DVSA. They have recently completed the transition to the new ISO accreditations, one of the first companies to do so.

Instarmac knows that when businesses listen, collaborate and innovate with their customers, they thrive.

A customer on a recent visit to Instarmac’s premises commented, ‘It was a very worthwhile visit, and certainly has given us a couple of areas to go away and look at. I really hadn’t appreciated how big and diverse Instamac is, and it’s great to see you at the forefront of innovation and product development.’

Surface Defect Repair

A surface defect repair system developed to address specific areas of preventative maintenance. Through consultation with contractors and clients, it was identified that early treatment of defects in carriageways of thin surface asphalt repairs, would prevent formation of costly potholes and associated risks. Our Surface Defect Repair System is a granular thermoplastic, with anti-skid dressing that can be applied to minor defects in the carriageway. The product is heat applied and once set, gives a durable repair. It is not formulated for use on large scale repairs, which instead should be treated with our cold lay asphalt range. It is suitable for use on contracts where asset management allows for early identification of minor defects and can be built into the programme.
