Asphalt is an organic material and is thus susceptible to the actions of nature. From the day it is placed, asphalt pavements begin to deteriorate. Asphalt rejuvenators work by penetrating pavement surfaces and restoring the chemical imbalances found in aging asphalt. This process increases ductility and flexibility.
Time Striping uses Star-Seal Supreme Sealcoat, a heavy-duty, low violate, refined tar sealant designed to protect asphalt. Star-Seal forms a tough, durable, and flexible coating that protects asphalt from the damaging elements of weather, water, salts, oils, gas and a myriad of other chemicals.
Crack sealing is the use of hot rubberized asphalt to seal cracks in asphalt. This prevents water from penetrating the sub-base and washing it out. It helps preserve the pavement adjacent to the cracks; prevents sand, stone, and dirt from making its way into open cracks causing compressive stresses; and extends pavement life by minimizing crack growth.
Gilsonite Sealer/Binder Emulsion GSB-88
GSB-88 is an emulsified, gilsonite-enhanced, pavement sealer. It is one of the most environmentally sound pavement preservation products on the market. It has a 22 year history of performance that has been well-documented by its continued and ever-expanding use nationwide.
Time Striping’s typical hot-pour sealant provides an average of 3 to 5 years of life after proper installation. Some of our PVC coal-tars can perform well past 8 years. Time’s silicone sealants have performed well for periods exceeding 8 to 10 years on roadways. This type of performance hinges on joint preparation and installation.
