Distressed Pavement Repair Mastic
Description: Dura-Fill Mastic T2 is a hot-applied, preblended repair mastic comprised of a black, asphalt-based, polymer-modified binder and a select aggregate. This material is self adhesive. Dura-Fill Mastic T2 resists cracking, delamination, and spalling. It is a flexible material that can withstand heavy loads, weather, traffic and thermal movement. Mastic T2 provides a high-friction surface to ensure driver safety. Compac-tion equipment is not necessary with Dura-Fill Mastic T2. This repair system is formulated to provide a feathered edge.
Recommended Uses: Dura-Fill Mastic T2 is recommended for sealing wide cracks and joints, as well as repairing a large variety of distresses in cement and asphalt pavements. It is designed for large cracks and distressed surface areas too small for re-paving yet too large for traditional hot-applied crack sealants.
Surface Preparation: Proper surface preparation facilitates adhesion and consequently the maximum ser-vice life of the mastic. In order for proper adhesion to occur, the surface must be free of moisture, dust, loose aggregate, and other contaminates. Avoid use in highly-distressed areas that require reconstruction. The substrate and air temperatures must be 40 °F or above. Use oil-free compressed air and heat to clean and dry the area immediately prior to application. Heating the pavement will promote bonding between the mastic and pavement surface. Caution: Do not to overheat/oxidize the pavement.
Melting and Application: Melt Dura-Fill Mastic T2 using an oil-jacketed kettle designed for mastic materi-als. The kettle should be equipped with an agitator and temperature control devices for the material and heating oil. Carefully insert small quantities of Dura-Fill product and the plastic bag into the melter while the agitator is turned off to avoid splash back. Once material has reached application temperature, apply to freshly prepared area. Dura-Fill Mastic T2 can be applied directly from the melter using an appropriate flute, bucket, or mastic wagon. Immediately following application, the mastic shall be leveled and smoothed using mastic flutes. In deep installations, mastic may be applied in layers, cooling in between. When mastic is installed where added skid resistance is desired, Dura-Fill Mastic T2 may be covered with Dura-Top™ surface aggregate. Dura-Fill Mastic T2 is ready for traffic when it has cooled and solidified.
Note: The temperature of the heating oil should not exceed 525 °F. Do not heat material over the maximum heating temperature and do not maintain it at that temperature for prolonged periods of time. This could cause the material to gel in the equipment or fail on the pavement. A significant viscosity increase accom-panied by stringiness signals the onset of gelation. If this occurs, immediately remove the material from the melter and dispose of it.
