Sawing and Sealing Pavements

Sawing and Sealing is a useful approach when we expect a joint or crack to form within concrete or asphalt applications. Pavements will flex, move, and stress during temperature and seasonal changes.

To control a stress crack line and severity, cuts are sawn into the pavement to direct stresses toward these areas preventing cracks from migrating throughout the pavement slab. Sawing and sealing is appropriate for asphalt, concrete, or asphalt-over-concrete pavements.

Once the joint has been sawn to the appropriate dimensions, it is immediately cleaned, dried and sealed with a high spec polymerized asphalt sealant or a silicone sealant.
