Monitoring has shown that enhanced IRJs result in fewer defects. This is because the bespoke end post filling compound which is included in the kit, makes the IRJ waterproof. Water causes corrosion which in turn can lead to malfunctioning. The antistatic coating prevents any grinding substance or dirt from adhering to the surface.
The kit comes in a case containing the materials needed to repair all types of IRJs and includes surface cleaner, joint primer, glue, glue gun, scraper, anti-static coating, nozzles, and gloves.
A one person operation and fast curing times make it possible to permanently repair a joint in only 20 minutes. The waterproof formulation can be applied in damp conditions. If necessary, the same IRJ can be repaired multiple times. The glue component in the kit is so strong, it not only repairs the joint but also makes it stronger.
If IRJs are not properly maintained, they can deteriorate over time, which can cause breaks in the track circuit, resulting in detrimental effects on safety. Timely detection of damage or irregularities can eliminate the need for costly replacement.
