ASPHALT REJUVENATORS & SEALERS
Planning for regular maintenance transforms an expense into an asset. This investment in the property saves millions of dollars by significantly extending the life of the existing pavement. Maintenance of existing asphalt is an environmentally friendly alternative to new paving which has a negative effect on the environment by releasing pollutants caused by the making, transporting and installation of new material.
What Is Asphalt Rejuvenator
Conditioning Pavement Rejuvenator, CPR™, is designed to replace the lost maltenes, (the soft fraction of the asphalt binder), in the original asphalt pavement and restore the new-like qualities of viscosity, ductility, and bitumen content, that will significantly extend the life of the pavement. CPR™ is classified as both a Reactive Penetrant and a Reactive Species of 3-part blended chemicals, unlike some other “so-called” rejuvenators.
PRT-Group offers an alternative to emulsion sealers, a premium Asphalt Rejuvenator Sealer which only needs to be reapplied every 4-6 years. Installation is by high production, computer controlled equipment which results in a more accurate and even application. Since this product needs to be applied less frequently, its actual cost can be lower when broken down over the longer term.
In addition to the cost savings, fewer applications also result in less disruption to your residents or customers. Asphalt Rejuvenator is best suited for use on new overlays or pavements that have not been seal coated. This product is a penetrant not a surface coating. It penetrates into the asphalt to chemically plasticize or rejuvenate the asphalt binder to improve pavement condition and reduce costly future cracking and repairs.
Rejuvenator is ideal for use on airports, condominiums, office buildings, shopping centers, hospitals, etc. If you are an owner, engineer, or property manager, of any of these facilities, continue to browse this site to learn more, or you can even learn how to become a contractor dealer!
Why Asphalt Pavements Deteriorate
Asphalt deterioration is a chemical as well as a physical process. Oxidation causes the pavement binder to become hard and brittle. Deterioration of the asphalt binder that holds the aggregate together is the real problem. If proper maintenance is not implemented, the high cost of repaving or reconstruction is certain.
How to Stop Pavement Deterioration
If oxidative hardening can be chemically reversed, the life of the pavement will be extended 2-3 times its current life. Rejuvenators chemically treat the asphalt binder. They reverse oxidative hardening and extend the life of the pavement; thus, decreasing your asphalt maintenance and paving costs.
Rejuvenator is a Penetrate
It is NOT a seal coat or surface seal or coating. There are many of these products on the market today. Some have been around for 40 years and are less effective now due to changes in raw materials. Some are too costly; some are ineffective and do not provide true value for your maintenance dollar. Using the right product at the time when it can be most effective is the key.
