(Cut-out reveals crack resistant under seal)
Many times, when surface treatments are applied over cracked streets the cracks reappear within the first year or two. This cracking can be slowed but never stopped even with the application of the MAQS® surface. But if the PressurePave® ‘s more ductile and crack resistant sealant is present the base pavement will remain sealed.
Specifically engineered to fill small “hairline” and large transverse/longitudinal cracks while traveling at 6 feet per second, the pressure-injection system is capable of coating the entire surface with a ductile and highly water-resistant membrane. This membrane is chemically engineered to remain ductile in cold temperatures and tough in the heat. If this membrane were to crack, it is designed to be able to self-heal with the application of heat and pressure (traffic).
