The newest technologies allow asphalt pavements to last longer while helping the environment.
Even the best surfaces are subject to the wear and tear caused by time, weather, and traffic. No surface is permanent. But by undertaking a program of planned pavement maintenance, considerable savings in rehabilitation costs may be achieved. Your pavement surface will remain sound, usable and safe.
The application of REAS will significantly extend the life of existing pavements by protecting the under-surface from the effects of aging and the environment. Improved surface performance is an added bonus.
Timing of the treatment is important in overall cost and effectiveness. Although the serviceability of an untreated asphalt pavement is still adequate after several years of use, pavement deterioration has already begun. A maintenance program undertaken before significant deterioration has begun is essential to maximize pavement life. Preventative maintenance is more cost-effective than corrective maintenance.
SAVE MONEY – REAS is economical and highly cost effective compared to other pavement preservation options.
COMPLETE PROJECTS QUICKLY – Easy, quick application makes REAS especially attractive for maintaining residential streets, busy thoroughfares, parking lots and airport runways.
PREVENT PROBLEMS – Used over newly laid pavements, REAS will prevent surface distresses such as the effect of weathering, oxidation, loss of oils, loss of matrix and brittlement of the mix are minimized. It also provides special durability and a skid resistant texture, not available in the underlying asphalt.
CORRECT PROBLEMS – Existing distresses in older pavements – surface cracking, raveling, loss of matrix, increased water and air permeability and slipperiness due to flushing or aggregate polishing, even wheel ruts and lane rutting – can be corrected through a REAS application.

Surface conditions dictate which application process is applicable.
Aggregate types are I (fine), II (General), and III (Coarse).
Over 135 recycled tires are used per lane mile in our R.E.A.S.
Our rubberized slurry outlast conventional slurry seals with our proprietary polymers, admixtures and rubber additives. Communities like Alamosa, Carbondale, Montrose and Telluride have already utilized this environmentally responsible solution to meet their asphalt preservation needs.
REAS PROVIDES LONG - TERM PROTECTIONREAS extends pavement life by five to seven years by sealing pavement against water absorption and ultraviolet rays.
► Lasts 5-7 years
► Green technology
► Cost effective maintenance for pavement preservation
► Uniform and consistent black color
►REAS has exceptional bond between emulsion and aggregate .
REAS provides a better, more consistent black matte finish than other surface treatment and will last through the life of the application.
REAS superior resistance to fading allows roadway and runway striping and marking to remain sharp and bright. Increased visibility can mean safety.
- Polymerized Fiber Reinforced
- Micro-Surface Slurry
Select coal tar resins are blended with an asphalt emulsion, and then interlaced with polymerized latex. The blend is then reinforced by polyester fibers. Coarsely graded aggregates are then held in suspension by the compound. The polymerized fiber-reinforced slurry is then applied as a micro surfacing treatment to protect asphalt surfaces.
The result: extremely durable asphalt protectant that restores the original look of newly placed asphalt.
Longevity: More than twice that of sealco’s conventional sealcoating. Over three times longer than that of our competition.
1. Old asphalt surfaces that need rejuvenation.
2. Higher traffic volume surfaces.
3. Asphalt surfaces where increased skid resistance is required.
