CrackMaster™ Mastic Gray

CrackMaster™ Mastic Gray

CrackMaster Mastic Gray is a hot-applied, synthetic polymer-modified resin compound containing mineral fillers, chopped fibers, and graded aggregates. It is designed to replace traditional cementitious pavement repairs, which are prone to failure due to their stiffness. CrackMaster Mastic Gray meets all requirements of ASTM D8260-20.

Description

CrackMaster Mastic Gray is a hot-applied, synthetic polymer-modified resin compound containing mineral fillers, chopped fibers, and graded aggregates. It is designed to replace traditional cementitious pavement repairs, which are prone to failure due to their stiffness. CrackMaster Mastic Gray meets all requirements of ASTM D8260-20.

• Load transferring repair with superior tensile strength and flexibility.
• Accommodates limited joint/crack movement due to thermal expansion and contraction, and vibratory movements.
• Resistant to water intrusion and broad range of salts, bases and organic materials.
• Long term repair solution for concrete structures.
• Cures at low temperatures.

Uses

• Cracks larger than an inch wide
• Pavement seam failures
• Longitudinal shoulder joint failures
• Potholes
• Utility cuts
• Depressions, ruts, and low areas
• Large joints around raised manholes and catch basins
• Uneven pavement
• Raveled and delaminated pavements

Application

Mill crack or joint with an approved milling machine to the specified width and depth. Mill, saw cut and jack hammer pothole; or core and jack hammer to remove defective areas. Clean and dry the repair with a hot air lance. Treat recessed areas and vertical walls with a primer agent to promote adhesion and prevent moisture intrusion (for concrete applications only).

Heat CrackMaster Mastic Gray material in a thermostatically controlled, purpose-built mixer, with an agitator that ensures complete mixing. Once the material reaches approximately 300 to 320 °F (149 to 160 °C), pour molten CrackMaster Mastic Gray into the prepared area, sealing the bottom of the repair from water intrusion.

If the depth of the repair exceeds 1 inch, the remainder of the repair process will consist of layering coarse, hot angular aggregate (cleaned and dried) at a rate of 25% – 55% by volume with the molten CrackMaster Mastic Gray until within ¾-inch of the top of the repair. The bulking aggregate must be worked into the patch completely. Depth limitations are ¾-inch to full depth. NO DRY LAYERS OF BULKING AGGREGATE WILL BE ALLOWED.

The final ¾-inch of the repair will be CrackMaster Mastic Gray material for optimum flexibility of the repair. Once the top layer has been screeded to a level grade, a high PSV aggregate will be applied to the top of the repair to ensure proper skid resistance. Depending on the depth of the repair, CrackMaster Mastic Gray will be ready for traffic return between 30 and 60 minutes.

Important

See SDS for complete safety precautions prior to use. Use HSE-approved personal protective equipment (PPE), including safety glasses, gloves and confined space equipment/procedures if applicable. Avoid skin contact; do not ingest. For professional use only. All removed materials and residual repair materials will be recovered and disposed of away from the site according to the client’s specifications. All Federal, State and OSHA safety requirements must be followed during installation.
