E-Krete helps extend the life of asphalt pavements.
Not effected by water, snow melt, rainfall, and automotive fuels;
No prefilling of cracks - E-Krete PCMO automatically fills the cracks (up to 1/2-inch wide) as it places a protective cap on the existing asphaltic material;
Can be applied directly over old chip seal or other resurfacing products and will eliminate the loose rock problem that causes broken windshields associated with chip seal. It also bonds to itself when maintenance patching is required. The thin 1/8-inch thickness eliminates many grade transitions, the required milling associated with utility adjustments, or curb and gutter issues;
Can be rapidly installed on damaged substrates, and depending on the temperature, allows the return of the pavement to service in one hour, in most cases;
Provides a long-lasting, high friction wearing course through the integration of graded aggregates into the surface material; can also provide new asphalt surfaces with a high friction-wearing surface;
No odor or tracking issues;
Can be applied to new asphalt as soon as two weeks;
Will arrest deterioration and cracking of "old" asphalt as long as the structure is adequate and stable;
Provides an SRI (Solar Reflectivity Index) that meets and exceeds the requirement for LEED projects, according to the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) at Auburn University. E-Krete reduces the heat by as much as 12 degrees F compared to the heat which is absorbed;
Is 100-percent environmentally safe. Unlike traditional sealcoating materials that contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), E-Krete has no PAHs and is recognized by the EPA as "reducing the need for resurfacing, sealing and replacement … thus eliminating the generation and release of PAH, coal tar materials, and hazardous solvents into the environment."
