Untreated pavement cracks tend to grow in width causing a drop in the pavement functional and structural integrity. In Arizona and other western climates a particular type of this distress involves the development of cracks as wide as six inches, which pose problems for traditional remediation techniques. A recent solution is applied Repair Mastic. This product is a hot-applied, prepackaged, ready to melt mastic repair material made from quality-selected asphalt,hard/durable aggregates, and a combination of additives. Benefits compared to patching are less labor intensity and overall costs, and restore structural integrity.
