Crack Repair.

With all the traffic that airports experience on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that asphalt pavements throughout the Air Operations Area (AOA) are under a lot of stress. And when asphalt is under a lot of stress, it’s more likely to experience cracks. We’ve got the team and the expertise to make sure those cracks and various pavement failures get repaired the right way.

Process

Saw cut the perimeter 18” to 24” wide by the length of the crack, and remove the pavement full depth to the subbase. After excavating, recompact the subbase, pave one lift equal to one half the depth, apply joint adhesive (ASTM D6690) to the saw-cut edge, and repave the remaining depth to meet existing grade. Seal the perimeter of the repair with fiberized or rubber crack sealant.

Benefits

  • Improved ride quality
  • Permanent repair of the crack
  • Extends life of pavement 5 to 10 years
  • Improves overall airport safety
