This method involves heated up blocks of rubberized asphalt in a specially designed oil-jacketed melter and then applying the heated material to cracks in asphalt parking lots. Hot pour crack filling and sealing is generally done on roads and highways and in many cases, on parking lots. Hot pour offers the advantage of quick set times (10 minutes or less). Once the hot pour material cools you can drive on it.
Cold Applied Crack Filling provides an efficient, economical and effective approach to filling and sealing cracks in asphalt pavement of parking lots and other asphalt.
The term “Sealing” is widely regarded in the asphalt maintenance industry as to be attributed to strictly rubberized elastomeric materials. Cold applied crack filling is typically performed on parking lots and driveways, but can also provide effective results on roads and streets. Cold Applied Crack Fillers typically consist of a clay-filled, polymer-modified asphalt emulsion liquid that flows into cracks at ambient temperatures.
