Crack Filling

Hot rubber crack filling is the best process available today for sealing cracks. Crack Fill is a highly elastic polymer that fills the gaps and voids in your asphalt. Crack Fill expands and contracts according to weather conditions. When water enters cracks, the pavement will begin to erode resulting in extensive and costly damage. Evidence of this starts as alligator cracking and pot hole formation. Winter accelerates deterioration of asphalt due to freeze/thaw process from water that is present in the asphalt sub-base that freezes, expands, and pushes the pavement up causing frost heaves. When warmer weather arrives, thawing causes the sub-base to contract and soften, leaving a void. Options hot sealant crack repair protects your asphalt investment, It cost so little to protect so much.

Benefits of Crack Filling:

Saves You Money
For pennies on the dollar, you can avoid costly asphalt replacement with crack sealing performed by professionals. The cost of replacement can be 20 – 30 times more expensive than a single maintenance procedure.

Slows Oxidation
Left untreated, cracks allow water into and beneath the base which leads to pavement failure. Water is the number one enemy of asphalt.

Prolongs Pavement Life
Routine Maintenance (proper crack sealing and sealcoating) can double the life of your asphalt. Crack sealing is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT STEP you can take to prolong the life of your asphalt.

Options Hot Rubber:
Our hot rubber is a dura-fill product that is an M-DOT spec. 3405 material. Options Sealcoating pre fills deep cracks with silica sand before applying hot rubber to avoid crack sinking. Cracks are then cleaned using high power blowers to remove all loose debris and vegetation. The hot rubber starts out as a solid material and is heated to 350 degrees to melting point and then is applied as a liquid that covers the width of cracks and forms a rubber seal when cooled. The application used is known as, over-banded method that covers half inch on either side of the crack, to prevent water from sitting on or near the cracks. Hot rubber crack sealing is an economical process to prolong the life of asphalt parking lots. Options Sealcoating recommends hot rubber crack sealing in conjunction with sealcoating for best results.
