The IJ Field Repair kit by L.B. Foster Company is designed to be used on insulated bonded joints in the field by repairing a damaged endpost head.

Insulated Joint Field Repair Kit

L.B. Foster’s IJ Field Repair Kit is a field tested convenient solution to help extend the life of a bonded insulated rail joint showing signs of endpost head damage without the need of full joint replacement. Due to the adverse loading conditions seen by the rail, lipping on the rail head is a very common occurrence. This leads to degradation of bonded insulated joints where rail lipping may cause electrical failure and damage to the endpost. The endpost repair process takes only 10 to 15 minutes per joint, and one kit can repair 10 joints on average.

Fully furnished kit includes surface cleaner, applicator gun, filler adhesive, sprayer with dipping tool, mixing nozzle, resealable dispensing bags, spreader, dusting brush, and cloth rags.

1. Improves the life of a bonded insulated joint showing signs of endpost damage without the need of replacement.

2. Process takes only 10-15 minutes to repair the endpost head per joint
