What is Rejuvenation?
Asphalt rejuvenation is the process of restoring chemical properties that have been deteriorating since the moment new asphalt was laid down. Unlike conventional asphalt emulsion sealers that are water based, asphalt rejuvenators are made from coal tar blended with aromatic oils and solvents. An asphalt rejuvenator penetrates the asphalt well below the surface to chemically revitalize and protect the asphalt binder by replacing the tars and oils lost due to oxidation. This process also seals the pavement against air, water and chemical contaminants thereby slowing oxidation and deterioration which extends the effective service life of the pavement.
- replaces oils lost due to oxidation
- revitalizes the asphalt binder
- restores flexibility
- seals the pavement against contaminants
- extends the useful life of asphalt indefinitely
