Deery PLS is a hot-applied crack filler is designed to fill cracks in asphalt or concrete where recycled rubber, modifiers and polymers are approved. This product meets the specification for many states' DOTs and is favored by airports, highways and roadways.
It's designed to seal cracks water-tight and prevent water from seeping in to the foundation of your asphalt, causing further damage to the asphalt surface. When cracks are left unsealed, water will erode the foundation, leaving a pocket of air where the asphalt cannot bear its own weight and will collapse on itself, causing depressions or potholes. Deery PLS is an oil-jacketed crack sealant, designed to be melted down in an oil-jacketed kettle. It is not a direct-fire crack sealer, so it should not be used in the crackfill machines we sell, or other direct-fire kettles. Use this product in an oil-jacketed melter that has constant agitation.
Deery PLS crack sealer is generally used for projects that were spec'd with an oil-jacketed material: municipal roads, interstates, and airport runways. The elasticity in Deery PLS allows for greater expansion in cracks: it is much more flexible than direct-fire crackfill. It's designed for large bodies of asphalt.
Use this product to seal all major trafficked asphalt cracks to protect the pavement from water, ice and erosion.
Deery PLS can be applied as soon as the pavement is at the recommended temperature: at 40°F (4°C) or higher, place material into clean, dry crack using a hand-held pour pot, wheeled push bander or wand applicator. Squeegee any excess sealant tight to pavement surface.
Heat the product to 380-400°F (193-204°C). Do not heat over 400°F; if the product is held at a higher temperature for a prolonged period it will damage the product's adherance and performance.
