Our Materials and Methods
At Prime Asphalt we utilize:
Parking Lot Paving Products
Below is a brief outline of various parking-lot related products and services which apply to new parking lots as well as those in need of resurfacing or repairs.
Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete (HMAC)
HMAC is produced by mixing a heated asphalt binder to an aggregate at very-controlled temperatures. The paving and compacting is performed once the asphalt reaches a predetermined heat threshold.
Asphalt Patching and Repair
Any parking lot, at some point, will require occasional repairs. For any patching needs, we can begin the process anytime the air and ground temperatures are above freezing; and spot-patching is a good, temporary remedy. If problematic deterioration of your parking lot is determined, Prime Asphalt will do saw-cut removal and replacement. Deterioration will occur if water has infiltrated to the point where damage to the sub-grade is evident and the structural integrity of the pavement is a concern.
Chip Seal is a wonderful option if you desire your parking lot to stand out above the rest! This paving option creates a much more beautified appearance over traditional black-top or concrete, and possess a multitude of advantages over other paving materials. Also known as 'Tar & Chip', Chip Seal is very popular due to: 1) less cost 2) enhanced aesthetics 3) maintenance-free convenience 4) better traction 5) less heat absorption and 6) virtually no downtime.
With Chip Seal, liquid asphalt (or hot bitumen) is distributed over existing pavement or a compacted and grated area. The rock component is, then, added; and the area is rolled, impacted and sealed. You can, also, choose from a variety of natural colors; and once completed, your parking lot will provide a classy, textured look.
Any cracks in asphalt should be filled as soon as possible with either hot rubber or cold-pour crack filler which will harden, super tough. If left unchecked, cracks can weaken your parking lot's structural support. Being pro-active with repairing even the smallest cracks is crucial.
Asphalt will deteriorate quickly if it is not sealed or properly sealed. Seal Coat should be applied at least every 3 years to provide optimal protection; and it should be applied when air and pavement temperatures are 49 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. That temperature reading should be consistent for a a period of 4 continuous hours.
Over time, much-need oils in pavement will be lost due to oxidation and regular use. To combat this issue, emulsified sealer/rejuvenator is designed to penetrate the pavement and protect it against water, merciless heat and UV rays. Oil-based coatings cure quickly, rebind the aggregate, and provide a rich, black coloration. Oil-based Gilsonite can be added at any time, regardless of the temperature, as long as the work surface is dry.
If black doesn't have the parking-lot persona you are looking for, Prime Asphalt has 13 beautiful earthy colors to choose from that will add sass and class to your parking lot location! We use 'SealMaster Neutral Base Color Pave' which is mixed with ColorPave HD Tint to provide attention-grabbing results.
Grading and Excavation
If you have any grading and excavation project in mind, Prime Asphalt can get the job done! Because you would work with only one contractor, the entire process would be simple and seamless. Do you need a base installed for a new parking area or completion with grading on new construction? How about a need for clean-up and leveling after asphalt paving? Regardless of your goal, Prime Asphalt is here for you!
Recycled or Green Materials
Prime Asphalt cares about the quality of the environment; and we make every effort to reduce our 'footprint'. To do our part, we offer recycled asphalt – or RAP – which is the single, most-used recycled product in the US and has a reputation for being tough and maintenance-free. RAP is made from previously-used pavement that has been crushed and still possesses some of the original bituminous asphalt from being initially produced as Hot-Mix.
