Asphalt Crack Repair
Hot Rubberized Crack Sealant
Why Crack Repair?
Cracks lead to potholes. Properly performed asphalt crack repair can more than double the effective service life of the pavement
Asphalt Pavement Solutions is the Camden/Philadelphia crack repair experts, serving New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
As asphalt pavements age, they oxidize and shrink causing random cracking throughout the pavement. Asphalt crack repair should be a significant part of all asphalt maintenance programs. To prevent the more expensive repairs or resurfacing crack sealing should be done as often as needed. Crack sealing prevents water from entering and weakening the base which in turn cause cracks to spread and widen. Once the base is damaged, expensive asphalt patching is needed. Pavement is a costly investment. Just as you would seal leaks in the roof of your building you should seal cracks in your asphalt pavement.
Preparation & Application
All cracks must be clean and dry before application. High volume air, wire brooms and heat torch are used to remove any foreign matter.
For asphalt crack repair, APS uses a state of the art oil jacketed crack sealing system to heat and apply the hot rubberized crack sealant material. Heat control is critical to the material being applied. Overheating or burning the material reduces the effectiveness and elasticity of the material.
Thermostatic control for the heat -transfer medium shall be provided and shall have sufficient sensitivity to maintain sealant temperature within the manufacturer’s specified application temperature range. Temperature indicating devices shall have intervals no greater than 5°F (2.8°C) and shall be calibrated as required to assure accuracy. The melter shall have continuous sealant agitation and a mixing system to provide uniform viscosity and temperature of material being applied.
Parking Lot pavements are subject to slow moving vehicle traffic and foot traffic. These areas include but are not limited to: Parking Lots, Parking Garages, Driveways, Collector and Residential Streets, Crosswalks, Walkways and Recreation areas. Due to the nature of these types of pavements, special care should be taken when sealing cracks in these areas because they encounter different types of traffic than highways and high traffic volume roads. APS uses Parking Lot Sealant that is specifically formulated for these areas.
On large shopping center and heavy traffic areas, APS can perform these services at night where applicable. When time is of the essence, and asphalt crack sealing needs to be done and open to traffic, APS uses a product that enables us to open areas to traffic immediately. Parking Lot Sealant Type 1 is specifically formulated to be a stiff, flow resistant, yet flexible product which is suited for use in areas subject to pedestrian and slow moving vehicular traffic in moderate to warm climates where high resistance to pick-up or tracking is required.
