The Winning Formula

J-Band® was formulated as a VRAM (Void Reducing Asphalt Membrane) to significantly reduce air voids in longitudinal joints from the bottom up. Applied under the longitudinal joint in new asphalt, the J-Band® migrates upward as hot mix is installed on the top layer to fill voids and block water and air from creating pockets that will later deteriorate the asphalt.
