If moisture is allowed to reach your lot’s pavement, it will cause a weakening all the way from the bottom right on up to the top. Once you can see the damage in the form of a crack in the pavement at the surface, it might be too late. The answer comes in the form of petromat overlays. These reduce the infiltration of surface water by placing a water barrier in between each layer of pavement.
The petromat system is devised with a polypropylene fabric along with an asphalt cement coat. The petromat system is put in between layers of pavement to form the roadway/pavement space. The resulting barrier blocks out water and prevents excessive stress that could result in harmful cracks. Opt for our petromat overlays and you will find that the durability of your new asphalt concrete pavement greatly increases. Your overlays will also enjoy an extended lifespan as well.
To begin the asphalt petromat process, we clean the fabric from all dirt, debris, water and other particles. Once the fabric adheres to the manufacturer’s specifications, we apply a liquid asphalt binder. The fabric is then placed to permit a one inch to three inch overlap and alsoto prevent wrinkles from forming.
A self-propelled paver is used to install the asphalt concrete by way of a single lift. The edges are tapered along the connecting surface or in a manner that will meet an edge milled by a machine. Each and every utility cover, manhole cover, drain, monument and any other item is lifted or tapered to the existing grade.
ACPLM is here to provide the equipment and labor necessary to create the mandated compaction of 93 percent. Once completed, the surface will be comparatively dense, smooth, nicely bonded, visually appealing and evenly textured. We would also like prospective clients to know that ACPLM provides all of the necessary barricades, cones and other necessary devices to maintain a safe flow of traffic. We strive to fully protect everyone who is within range of the work zone, regardless of their specific role.
