When To Apply?
RejuvaSeal can be applied on asphalt pavement when it’s relatively new, slightly aging, or even damaged. As long as irreversible structural damage has not occurred, and the asphalt is properly prepared depending on its condition, a single coat of RejuvaSeal can rejuvenate, revitalize and protect the pavement.
Applying RejuvaSeal to NewER Pavement
The greatest change in composition of an asphalt binder takes place during the manufacture of the hot mix asphalt (HMA). Even though it might appear to still be in relatively good shape, applying RejuvaSeal to a surface six months to a year after it has been laid offers several benefits to the pavement.
- restores the original asphalt properties.
- seals and protects the pavement.
- improves the durability.
- extends the life-cycle.
Applying RejuvaSeal to Aging Pavement
RejuvaSeal should be applied to asphalt pavement at the first sign of aging, which includes minor cracking, stripping or raveling. When the asphalt just starts to turn gray is a perfect time to apply a coat of RejuvaSeal to stop the oxidation and prevent any future deterioration.
Applying RejuvaSeal to Damaged Pavement
Asphalt pavement that has base course damage, severe reflective cracking, pot holes, stripping and raveling due to oxidation, chemical contaminants and deterioration should be properly repaired before treatment. Allow up to 30 days after the repairs are completed for the new asphalt to cure. Then apply a single coat of RejuvaSeal. The repairs will blend in and the asphalt will have a solid, uniform appearance.
Before RejuvaSeal can be applied…
- the surface must be clean and dry.
- the surface temperature must be 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) or above.
- surface should be free of oil, loose dirt, dust, and debris.
The optimal application rate is dependent on pavement design, age and existing pavement condition. A test patch should be completed 24 hours prior to application to determine the optimal rate. Depending on weather condition and porosity of the asphalt surface, RejuvaSeal usually takes about 4 to 8 hours to dry.
