Having a clean tack truck isn’t just important because it makes sure you look good driving down the road; a clean tack truck is key to its performance.

Cleaning a tack truck is a task that needs to be performed daily. Over time, overspray can accumulate on the bar and nozzles, leading to malfunctioning of the unit, misfiring, and clogs. Many companies resort to using harsh chemicals or labor-intensive dry ice blasting to clean the tack from their trucks; that is before they learn about PavePro.

Let’s take a look at the problem with a dirty and unmaintained asphalt distributor truck and how PavePro has innovated the perfect solution for cleaning up overspray tack and distributor lines and nozzles.

There’s no question that tack makes a mess. No matter how hard you try to prevent it, it’s going to happen. Tack, oil, and prime often harden in lines when it cools, preventing the material from flowing at the appropriate rate and clogging the lines and nozzles. Caked-up nozzles spray oil in every direction except where it should go. And don’t get me started on overspray. If there’s even the slightest amount of wind, you’re gonna get tack overspray on your body.

All The Clean, Without The BS

Most products on the market used for cleaning tack trucks are corrosive or caustic. Chemicals like citrus and diesel fuel can ruin your aluminum body and eat through your rubber lines, and most of the time aren’t great at cleaning either.

Dry ice blasting is also commonly used but is labor- and time-intensive when completed in-house and expensive when you pay someone to do it for you.

PavePro Gold is the best way to clean distributor truck overspray, lines, and nozzles without intensive labor or equipment damage.

Gold is a heavy-duty asphalt remover unlike any other. It can tackle inches of asphalt buildup, tack over spray, and even asphalt-based seal coat. Like all of our products, this asphalt cleaner still is 100% biodegradable, but that doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. There isn’t another asphalt solvent on the market with the strength and power that PavePro has. It is designed and formulated specifically for heavy-duty clean-up on tack and oil distributor trucks.

Tired of your good-for-nothing asphalt remover or release agent and ready to make a switch?

But The Benefits Don’t Stop There

In addition to the ability to soften and melt crystallized prime and overspray tack for easy removal on the exterior of your truck, you can also run it inside of your self-clean flushing system on the interior.

PavePro can be added directly into the solvent tank for your tack truck’s self-clean flushing system to unclog and clean your lines, wands, nozzles, and spray bars. For more information regarding this practice, please contact a PavePro Sales Representative and your distributor’s manual for flushing operations.

Our asphalt solvents are also pH-neutral, non-toxic, and non-hazardous. Best of all, PavePro is 100% water-deactivated which means you can rinse it down afterward without fear of it dulling out aluminum or eating up your rubber.
