HOT RUBBER CRACK FILLING - HOW WE DO IT

Code Black uses the following 4-step process to properly seal cracks. 
  1. Remove dirt, sand, vegetation and other debris in the cracks using a motorized machine with a spinning wire brush wheel called a Billy Goat Grazor Crack Cleaner.
  2. Blow the cracks clean and dry with hand-held or walk-behind blowers. Billy Goat Force walk-behind blowers allow us to direct the airflow just where we need it using fingertip controls. Clean and dry cracks improve the adhesion of the hot rubber product applied to them.
  3. Heat the hot rubber crack sealant to approximately 400 degrees and place the liquid form into cracks greater than 1/8 inch* wide using a one gallon hand-held, or ten gallon wheeled, hot rubber melter/applicator.
  4. Apply sand on top of the hot rubber, where applicable, to prevent tracking of the rubber. 
*Cracks less than 1/8 inch wide are sufficiently sealed with the sealant used to coat the pavement surface.
