Road Saver Hot Applied Pavement Crack Sealant
The best solution to keep drivers happy and roads healthy is to apply pavement preservation treatments early and often, and research demonstrates the best preservation treatment is crack sealing.
Crack sealing is an important preventive treatment and among the many different preservation treatment types available, has the highest benefit-cost ration (BCR). The four-year average cost for cracking sealing is 26 cents per sq. yd., while the next cheapest treatment— single chip seal, or spray seal—is four times more expensive. As any good investor would assert, you invest in crack sealing because it provides the highest benefit for the lowest cost, therefore maximizing your investment. Without crack sealing, 75% of cracks form into potholes in less than three years. With crack sealing, only 1% of sealed cracks develop into potholes in less than three years. A sealed crack provides better sustained smoothness over a five-year period versus an unsealed crack as measured by the International Roughness Index. In a nutshell, crack sealing is the best surface treatment to:
- Extend the service life of pavement;
- Save money; and
- Extend a smooth, safe, enjoyable driving experience.

Action Pave Pavement Sealer
Sealcoating with Crafco sealers protects asphalt pavement from water, oil, fuel, UV rays, de-icing salts, and other harmful elements. If pavement is left untreated, the aforementioned harmful elements degrade the top layer soon after the asphalt installation, causing surface cracks. This allows water to penetrate and make the pavement brittle and susceptible to structural damage. It’s best to begin a sealer strategy at the start of a pavement’s life, but if you’ve waited until your pavement has started to show signs of aging, it’s not too late. Crafco pavement sealers can preserve pavement life and beautify older pavement.
Sealcoating provides a variety of benefits. Sealcoat bonds firmly to the surface to provide an even-textured, durable barrier against water penetration, and shields the pavement surface from the drying action of the sun and ultraviolet rays. Sealcoat resists damage caused by gasoline and oil, while restoring the rich, black look of new pavement. Sealcoating beautification of parking lots, driveways, and other commercial and residential properties improve first perceptions and property values. Another benefit is sealcoating makes it easier to maintain and clean the pavement. The smooth barrier provided by sealcoating offers less resistance when sweeping or power washing the pavement, so superior results can be obtained with less effort. Sealcoating also accelerates the time it takes ice and snow to melt, which makes the pavement safer for the motoring public.
Designed for the contractor, the Crafco Super SEALCOATER comes loaded with standard features that are considered options on all other competitive seal coat machines. Quality parts and superior construction make the Super SEALCOATER the machine of choice for everyday rigorous use. Features such as the unbreakable steel tank to the oversize hydraulic system set this unit apart from all the others. Built with Crafco quality and engineered to last, choose the Super SEALCOATER as your next seal coat machine.
Crafco High Performance (HP) Cold Patches
Cold Patch, also known as cold mix, was first recognized as a way to make repairs quickly because it can be applied right from the container without heating. It is a plant-produced mixture of quality construction aggregate and liquid asphalt cement binder that is used for patching both asphalt and concrete pavements.
HP Asphalt Cold Patch does not require heavy rolling machines or special applicators. It can be shoveled or poured into a pothole or utility cut and tamped down with a hand tool, then opened to traffic immediately. No mixing is required and the easy-to-use bags prevent waste, which saves money. HP Asphalt Cold Patch doesn’t require messy clean-up time and adheres to asphalt, concrete or steel.
Crafco HP Concrete Patch is a unique, gray colored, cold applied, single component patching material. It is used for repairing potholes, spalls, cracks and other confined voids and distresses over 1 inch wide and greater than ½ inch deep, in cement concrete pavement, slab and deck surfaces. It can also be used to repair roads, highways, streets, airport pavements, parking lots, bridge and parking decks, sidewalks, walkways and floors.
To use, Crafco HP Cold Patch is simply removed from the bag, placed into the prepared area to be patched, leveled and then compacted. Because there is no need to heat or mix material, repairs can be completed within just a few minutes, minimizing delay to motoring public. The installation can be done with as few as 1 or 2 workers and does not require special equipment, which means “in house” staff can perform patching. Bags are easy to use and will eliminate the need for special equipment. Plus multiple vehicles can carry bags which can increase the production of the patching operation
