Hot Crack Filling in Connecticut.
Crack filling is one of, if not, the most important step to protecting your asphalt. Proper attention to cracks will prevent problems from spreading and extend the life of your parking lot. Pavement repair in the early stages of deterioration will pay big dividends later by delaying costly resurfacing.
Effective crack sealing keeps water from entering and weakening the base or sub-base. It helps preserve the pavement, prevents sand, stone, and dirt from making its way into open cracks causing compressive stresses and extends pavement life by minimizing crack growth.
Heat Lance the cracks with a Crack Jet
First we prep the cracks with hot air lance. This not only cleans the debris out but burns out weeds and vegetation, while drying moisture.
Hot Melted Rubber is applied
Second we apply a CT DOT approved hot rubber sealant, melted at 380º, which penetrates the crack and creates a bond once it is cooled.

Black Beauty Sand is applied
Third, as the rubber cools we add a de-tack agent to shorten its curing time and allow for vehicle and pedestrian traffic sooner.
Every step of this procedure is imperative to insure that you get the best performance and longest life out of the crack sealant. Keep in mind; crack sealing is a temporary fix. Once a crack has formed it will continue to expand and will need to be re-sealed eventually. Contact us today!
