Penetrates the asphalt:
Hawk-Seal-E becomes part of the asphalt
It does not merely cover the surface.
Hawk-Seal-E is put down in three applications. All three applications can be made the same day or one day, one week or one month apart.
The photo at the right shows penetration of the first application of Hawk-Seal-E.
Hawk-Seal-E creates minimal traffic interruption:
Expensive lane closures are generally not necessary.
No sand or other aggregate is used before, during or after treatment.
There is no tracking after 30 minutes in direct sun.
Hawk-Seal-E after treatment:
Most surfaces look and wear like a new overlay.
Hawk-Seal-E is site specific, not a one step cover up:
Asphalt will absorb as much Hawk-Seal-E as needed.
Three applications were made to the high traffic street pictured at the right. The sides of the street, where cars park and traffic is minimal, is less compacted and needs more product.
Hawk-Seal-E will locate areas of low compaction and seal them.
Hawk-Seal-E tightens the binder and reduces raveling.
These two photos show a 15 year old surface before treatment and 6 years after treatment.
15 year old surface 6 years after treatment
Loose aggregate was removed prior to treatment.
Results: Aggregate breakout was significantly reduced. After 6 years, asphalt is still waterproof.
Untreated surface, below left, 3 days after a rain. Below right, 1½ years after treatment and 1 day after a heavy rain.
After treatment, water evaporates instead of penetrating.
Hawk-Seal-E is both worker friendly and environmentally safe. These two photos show it being applied to walking trails along the environmentally sensitive Missouri River.
