Crack sealing is a first defense against pavement deterioration. Sealing cracks in pavement has proven to be one of the lowest cost pavement preservation treatments. Effective crack sealing keeps water from entering and weakening the base or sub-base. Approximately 75% of cracks in asphalt pavement form into potholes within 3 years if they are not sealed. Crack sealant is specifically engineered to bond to the walls of the crack, remain flexible at low temperatures so it doesn’t crack or split open, and remains stable at higher temperatures so that it doesn’t track or bleed on the pavement.
Saw & Seal:
In areas where there are freeze thaw cycles, the saw and seal method is ideal for increasing the longevity of asphalt pavement. By installing control joints in the new pavement and sealing the joints, the expansion and contraction process tends to cause many less random cracks in the pavement. (This is similar to installing control joints in concrete.) Studies by Departments of Transportation have shown the saw and seal method to be effective in significantly reducing pavement maintenance costs in the long run.
Fibrecrete is an effective repair that can replace expensive full depth concrete repair. Fibrecrete is a hot applied flexible concrete repair. It is formulated with polymer modified resins, fiberglass, mineral fillers and high-quality aggregates. This allows Fibrecrete to remain flexible yet strong enough to handle heavy traffic and the stresses of changing temperatures and seasons.
This product is used to repair: spalls, potholes, broken joints, corner breaks and most other horizontal defects in concrete.
PavePrep geo-composites are high-density mastics laminated with tough woven polyester designed to withstand the loads encountered by highway traffic and stress concentrations at pavement joints and cracks. The dense and flexible PavePrep mastic reduces crack reflection through the overlay.
PavePrep SA is a heavy duty high strength waterproofing membrane that is 0.135 inch (3.4mm) minimum thickness and is composed of a flexible, high density asphalt mastic bitumen between a top layer of heat resistant, high strength woven polyester reinforcing fabric and a bottom layer of non-woven heat resistant polyester fabric with a polymer modified asphalt self-adhesive layer and removable release liner. The high strength fabrics provide increased reinforcement and cracking resistance.
