Cracksealing

Cracksealing

Cracking in asphalt is inevitable. Left untreated, widening cracks and secondary cracking (known as “alligator cracking”) eventually lead to potholes, which in turn can cause costly repairs—not to mention potential liabilities.

Proper cracksealing can help guard against the deterioration and eventual failure of pavement. The process involves filling a crack in the pavement to prevent water and debris (such as dirt, sand or vegetation) from infiltrating the structure and causing further damage.

Proper treatment involves lancing and/or cleaning the crack with pressurized air and propane to remove debris and create a reservoir to receive the sealant. CRR combines a hot-applied rubberized joint sealant with a light aggregate coat, improving adhesion of the rubberized sealant to the pavement surface.
