Crack seal:
An Important Part of your Maintenance Plan.

According to The Association For Pavement Preservation “Every $1.00 spent on pavement preservation will save from $6.00 to $10.00 or more in rehabilitation/reconstruction costs.”(FP2.org)  Keeping cracks sealed is the first line of defense in Imperial Asphalt’s pavement maintenance program.crackseal2

Cracks in an asphalt surface provide water with direct access to the sub-base of the road.  As water mixes with the gravels underneath, the sub-base can become soft, allowing the asphalt surface above to fail causing potholes and cracking. With proper asphalt maintenance, the life of the asphalt can be extended.  slowing down the time between costly overlays or replacements. 

There are multiple types of crack seals that are designed to fill cracks in different situations.  We would be glad to work with you to determine what material will best fit your needs and meet the specifications.  For each specific asphalt maintenance situation that arises, Imperial Asphalt will provide the right solution.

Our indirect heat transfer kettles will melt blocks of rubberized crack sealant at temperatures above 350 degrees F.  This hot liquid rubber is then installed in the crack as deep as it will flow, filling it to the top, leaving a band-aid effect on the surface to create a sealed crack.  The crack seal material then bonds to the side walls of the crack as it cools down and cures.  This bonding affect is something that is best achieved by Imperial Asphalt’s heated liquid form hot pour crack seal system.
