As pavement ages, cracking is only inevitable. Over time the pavement will shrink, harden, and become more brittle. Cracks will form as thermal expansion and aging from underground layers occurs. As a result, hot-applied, rubberized asphalt crack sealants are designed to seal these cracks and minimize the penetration of water into the base below the pavement. Instead of water pouring into the base of the payment and causing deformation, the sealant protects the road’s surface.
If you’re looking for a crack sealant solution, turn to NUVO created by Maxwell Products. NUVO is a hot-pour asphalt crack and concrete joint sealant. This brand is known for its quality, longevity, and ease of use. Special attributes of NUVO products are PolySkin packaging, inteliBond technology, superior crack penetration, quick setup times, wide application temperature ranges, and fast melt times. With these premium features, NUVO competes to be the best sealant within the industry and is conveniently sold at Rose Equipment.
There are three lines of NUVO sealants to choose from — NUVO Elite, NUVO CS, and NUVO Spec. A sealant may be recommended to you based on your project’s needs for cost, performance, ease of application, and climate. Here is a description of each:
The Elite line of sealants is made from the finest raw materials and features extended performance ranges, faster setup times, and direct-fire compatibility. This line offers a range of benefits and versatility only available from the finest hot-pour crack sealants.
An excellent, all-purpose sealant, NUVO CS delivers an even balance between cost and performance. These sealants are formulated with medium viscosity and smooth consistency for greater ease of application.
Products in the NUVO Spec line are designed to meet standard specifications from various international, federal, state, local, and private organizations.
As we have mentioned, these products also have the unique features of PolySkin and inteliBond. PolySkin is meltable packaging, which means that customers no longer have to hassle with cardboard boxes and plastic liners. Instead, they can just drop the whole package straight into the melter and the packaging will dissolve quickly and completely. Its expanded bead construction keeps packaging afloat at the top of the melter until fully dissolved to virtually eliminate the possibility of clogging the material intake at the bottom of the melter. On the other hand, inteliBond is active bonding technology, which promotes adhesion to the pavement. Sealants with inteliBond are known to stretch farther with less force transferred to the crack walls, which maintains the structural integrity of the pavement and ensures a weather-tight seal. The research and innovation that has gone into these products make them better than most sealants on the market today.
