  • Publication number: 20200141066
    Abstract: A method of forming a pavement construction joint that involves dispensing a band of a void reducing joint composition on a substrate using at least one spray application vehicle, wherein the band comprises a width of about 4 to about 24 inches. A paving pass is applied over the band of joint composition, wherein the paving pass is positioned against an edge of a previously laid portion of pavement to form a pavement construction joint having a volume of air voids. At least a portion of the joint composition migrates upward to reduce the volume of air voids. The composition is resistant to flow when applied and migrates into hot mix asphalt in the area of the longitudinal joint to reduce air voids to 7% or less and reduce water permeability. The composition becomes tack-free quickly after application. The composition bonds to asphalt, concrete, brick, stone and metal.

  • Publication number: 20200002538
    Abstract: A void filling asphalt emulsion and a method of using the void filling asphalt emulsion to fill voids below the surface of an asphalt pavement. The void filling emulsion is prepared by forming a base asphalt emulsion having about 45 to 75 wt. % of an asphalt content, and combining the base asphalt emulsion with a surface tension reducing solution to produce a void filling asphalt emulsion that has about 25 to 50 wt. % of an asphalt content. When applied to an asphalt pavement the void filling emulsion penetrates into the asphalt pavement and fills voids in the asphalt pavement. The void filling emulation further being water resistant so as not to be washed off a pavement surface by water after being applied to the pavement.
