Low Cost preventive method to delay major pavement repairs
Cracking is one of the main concerns considered in the pavement design process. It is the primary mode of deterioration in asphalt cement pavements. Cracking occurs in a variety of forms: transverse, thermal, longitudinal, block, and alligator shapes. Cracks need to be treated promptly because they create openings for moisture & dust to penetrate into the pavement layers. Neglecting cracking usually leads to accelerated deterioration of the pavement, resulting in significant problems such as potholes or base failures, which cause the serviceability of the pavement to decline. Also before new overlays the cracks shall be treated first.
Below is an example on how fast the crack can develop and reflect from an old surface into a new one:
Marathon Equipment FZE is representing Canadian company Marathon Equipment Inc. which is an owned and operated manufacturer of wide variety of asphalt and concrete construction & maintenance equipment & material including crack routers, rubberized sealing kettles, hot asphalt haulers, transporters and seal-coating equipment.
We provide Asphalt Crack Sealing, Concrete Crack & Joint sealing, and Asphalt Seal Coating application services with advance equipment and material .
This new technology has demonstrated an excellent result when it is applied on the right cracks at the right time as it has also been able to postpone asphalt overlays, save expensive repairs and extend the serviceability of the roads and highways to 5 years and more. In addition, if the road contractors do not seal the cracks with the right method and material, the same cracks will be reflected to the new surface in less than one year. In another words, the cracks shall be sealed before performing the new surface.
Marathon has got an extensive sales record Worldwide including USA, Asia, Middle East, & North Africa. It has been proven in many countries that this technology can save a significant amount of money for new roads.
