4 Year Performance Warranty
Traditional seal coats merely coat the surface and do nothing to repair or protect the asphalt below the surface. Two coats are usually needed for the best results. A single application of asphalt rejuvenator penetrates the pavement and rejuvenates the asphalt binder well below the surface. It also seals and protects the pavement against water, sunlight and chemical contaminants, extending the life cycle and curb appeal of your asphalt assets.
What is Asphalt Rejuvenation?
To put it simply, it’s our special asphalt product that will get the job done right the first time with just a single application unlike most other pavers that require two applications. We believe in our asphalt rejuvenation service so much that we provide a 4 year performance warranty.
At Driveway Maintenance LLC we use the world’s leading asphalt rejuvenator. It is a proprietary product made from coal tar, aromatic oils, and specialty solvents. It contains no water. The solvents and oils enable Asphalt Rejuvenator to penetrate the surface of asphalt restoring the binder’s composition. Unlike conventional seal coats, Asphalt Rejuvenator makes the asphalt more flexible and less prone to cracking.
Asphalt Rejuvenator has been tested for performance claims more than any other rejuvenator on the market. This includes the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Canadian Army Forces, and various state DOT agencies. Asphalt rejuvenator has restored over 5,000,000 square yards of asphalt throughout the United States and is the leading Rejuvenator used on airfields around the world. It’s real science and it works!
Where to use an Asphalt Rejuvenator
A well-planned program of preventative maintenance is one which takes into consideration the characteristic behavior of asphalt. The aging process is caused by chemical changes in the asphalt. The original concept for the asphalt rejuvenator that came on the market in 1960 was a product that would reconstitute the asphalt. To keep “good” roads in “good” condition. The functional use was to revitalize aged asphalt in place, stop and reverse the shrinkage process which results in hairline cracking, to inhibit pitting and raveling, to reduce air and water permeability. This concept is unchanged today.
Asphalt Pavement Surface Treatments – the typical candidate is a asphalt pavement in the 3-7 year age range. But this is only a benchmark as rejuvenators are used as a construction seal to new asphalt to decrease permeability. They are used on segregated pavements, pitted and raveled pavements. The ideal candidate is a pavement with no base failure, good profile but showing the early signs of distress as stated above.
