Permanent Pavement Repair
Seals In it...
Not on it....
Now for the first time, Industry professionals can get contractor-type results in 3 easy steps using 3 tools. Crack Stix come in ¼, ½, & ¾ inch sizes. They are User Friendly and Ready-To-Use: no mixing, nothing to add, just uncoil, cut-to-length, pack, & heat. Crack Stix are flexible and can be stretched and shaped to custom fit the repair. The rubberized compound melts/liquefies instantly and cures quickly (traffic ready in less than 20 minutes). The self-leveling sealant goes inside the crack... not over the crack... less waste, no tracking or unsightly residue. The Multi-Use formula can be used on asphalt & concrete pavement.
Why HOT, Direct HEAT Process?
In the past, most contractors have had no choice but to use cold-pour or caulking type fillers. Cold applied products fill from the bottom-up and do not permanently bond/seal to the crack sidewalls. Crack Stix are hot applied, using a direct heat process (patent pending). Crack Stix form a permanent bond to the sidewalls of the crack or joint & provides a (liquid rubber) 100% water-tight seal. This seal will remain flexible and intact through the winter and summer expansion/contraction cycles.
3 Easy Steps...
Clean It: Take a screwdriver and scratch out all debris from inside the crack, then take a whisk broom and sweep it clean. Crack must be dry.
Pack It: Uncoil and cut the appropriate size stix and shape/pack into crack with fingertip pressure. Using the screwdriver, press the stix into crack approximately 1/6" to 1/8" below actual pavement surface level. To achieve a neat overall appearance, do not overfill crack. The material seals in it, not on it.
Melt It: Take propane torch and light it. Adjust bright blue part of flame to 1" long. Holding the flame 1-1/2" from stix, move the flame from side to side in a slow & even motion, heating no more than one foot at a time (melt stick until liquid). Seal cures in 20 minutes and is ready for traffic.
