How to Easily Repair and Maintain Your Asphalt Driveway

How to Easily Repair and Maintain Your Asphalt Driveway

1- Cleaning

Guide

It is a step of the utmost importance to prepare the surface to be protected. The CLEANER AND DEGREASER effectively dissolves and cleans oil and grease spots impregnated on paved surfaces.

2- Surface Preparation

Guide

The second step is to apply the OIL SPOT PRIMER on the asphalt surface. This primer enhances the adhesive strength of asphalt driveway sealers on surfaces affected by oil sediments.

3- Levelling and Patching

Guide

Before applying the RESISTOSEAL ASPHALT PROTECTOR, it is necessary to fill and repair any cracks and crevices to create a smooth, uniform surface and prevent water from seeping into the granular base.

For cracks less than 1 cm (3/8 in)

The high-performance RUBBERIZED CRACK FILLER is ideal for repairing cracks, joints and other damage in paved surfaces.

For medium cracks

The LIQUID CRACK FILLER (small cracks less than 6 mm [1/4 in]) and LEVELLING PATCH (medium cracks from 6 to 20 mm [1/4 to 3/4 in]) strongly adhere to the crack walls and remain flexible, thus moving with the asphalt during freezing and thawing cycles. They are highly resistant to the temperature changes that they must withstand year after year. Additionally, they are not sticky, even during intense heat waves.

For potholes and cracks bigger than 20 mm (3/4 in)

The RESISTOSEAL ASPHALT REPAIR mixes help repair potholes and large cracks on asphalt driveways, parking lots and sidewalks. They adhere to any firm surface, even wet ones. They are ready to be used; you just have to fill potholes and cracks with a shovel and compact well.

4- Protection of Asphalt Surface

Guide

RESISTOSEAL ASPHALT PROTECTOR and ASPHALT DRIVEWAY RESTORER are easy to mix and apply and will leave no trace. They are water-soluble until dry; tools used for the application or spillages are therefore easy to clean.

The protectors made from coal tar pitch prevent the penetration of water in your asphalt, which is one of the main causes of surface deterioration.
