How often should I clean my crack repair machine?
It's good to clean it out completely after 5 uses; otherwise there is a possibility of charring rubber in areas where there may be multiple layers of rubber built up.
To clean it, heat it up and scrape it out with a scraper on a broom handle. Then start fresh with a brand new box of crackfill.
What should the pavement temperature be to crack fill?
You can fill cracks as long as the pavement is 40°F or warmer. If it is colder but you need to fill cracks, use a heat lance to heat the pavement up before you apply it.
What temperature does the crackfiller need to be to flow?
The best temperature for heating your material to is 380 - 400°F (193 - 204°C) ; any higher than 400°F may severely damage product. Prolonged heating can also damage the product - heat it only when you are ready to apply it.
How long can I keep unopened crack sealant?
Our crack filler has a shelf life of 10 years unopened. It's why so many of our customers choose to take advantage our half-pallet and pallet offerings: the savings are so high it is worth storing them until you need them. It can be stored outside; just cover it with weather-resistant pallet wrap and keep it out of the sun.
I have left over tar in my machine. Is it okay to leave it there and reheat it at a later time?
Absolutely! You just have to heat it up again when you are ready to use it.
How soon can you drive on newly filled cracks?
As soon as the crackfiller comes down to ambient temperature - sometimes as soon as 30-45 minutes when it is hot, and more quickly in cooler temperatures. Test with a stick: if you push down on the crackfiller and the crackfill doesn't tack to the stick, you're good to drive on it.
After applying crackfill, how soon can you seal coat?
Whether you used liquid cold-pour crack filler or rubberized hot-pour crack filler, it is best to let the product dry completely before applying sealer. Depending on ambient and surface temperatures, the actual drying time of the crack fill can vary. We usually recommend allowing crack fill to dry for 24 to 48 hours before applying sealer.
How many gallons of material does each "block" of rubber melt down to?
Each box of rubberized crack filler contains a 30-lb. cube. When melted, each cube yields about 3.6 gallons of liquefied rubber crackfill. This means that if you own a RY10 Pro, you will need about 3 cubes to fill the 10-gallon capacity of this melter...
What type of sand can I put on top of the cracks if traffic needs to drive on it before crackfill has completely hardened? Can I use regular sand?
It is best to use silica sand. Silica sand is basically 99% to 99.5% silicon dioxide, meaning, it is pure, more stable, and is resistant to acid. Regular sand, on the other hand, contains a lot of impurities such as a mix of feldspar and other oxide minerals with very low silica content.
