Hot rubber crackfilling corrects areas where cracks have formed. Crack filling protects asphalt from water damage. If left untreated, water travels into the pavement, can freeze, and thaw causing premature aging of the pavement. Cracks are always routed prior to the application of sealant(crackfill). This step insures that the sealant penetrates below the surface of the pavement and allows it to adhere to the side walls of the channel created by the router. By using this method, the life expactancy of the filler can be 5 years or more on the average.
If a crack is not routed only compressed air to blow loose material from the crack is used. The sealant is applied directly to the top of the crack. Life expectancy of this procedure is only 0-1 year on average. Once sealant has been applied to a non-routed crack, it can not be routed in the future as the cutter head on the router becomes "gummed-up" from the previously applied sealant.
