Keeping your asphalt paving equipment clean and functioning is the key to success in this industry. Using a powerful asphalt remover and asphalt release agent will not only keep your paving machines and equipment looking good, but it will even help them function as they should. Ultimately, this will lead to a better-finished product for your customer with less headache for your paving crew.
You might be thinking to yourself: “I use diesel fuel to prevent build-up and to clean up at the end of the day. I’m good.” While diesel is certainly the gold standard and a strong solution, PavePro is a powerful alternative that works better and has a wide variety of benefits. All of which diesel fuel can’t claim.
PavePro is a two-in-one solution: an asphalt release agent and an asphalt remover. It’s just like diesel fuel, but it’s legal, it cleans better and lasts a whole heck of a lot longer under high heat. There are plenty of benefits that come with using PavePro, many of which are not commonly found in other products and solutions. Let’s take a look at these benefits to see how PavePro can change the way your crew paves.
I’m sure you’ve noticed the steam that occurs when you spray diesel fuel or many other asphalt release agents while working with hot mix asphalt. With a flash point of around 130°F, diesel fuel quickly vaporizes and stops preventing the build-up when you’re laying 325°F hot mix. PavePro, on the other hand, has a flash point well over 400°F and doesn’t disappear as diesel fuel does. So what does this mean for you?
When using PavePro, you’ll experience a much longer-lasting release agent which helps you pave more and apply less release agent. For the guys with hand tools, they won’t have to spray every few minutes. They’ll be able to get more than 50 shovel loads of asphalt after pretreating with PavePro (compared to only 37 with diesel). In your dump trucks, you won’t have to apply every time you get a load. One coating of PavePro can last between 3-5 loads of asphalt before you have to reapply.
PavePro Will Save You Money
When you apply less product, you spend less money. It’s as simple as that. Yes, PavePro costs more than diesel fuel. But, it is less expensive than a lot of other solutions out there. And when you switch from diesel to PavePro, your accounting folks will be very happy.
Here’s a good analogy. You have to put new tires on your truck and you’ve narrowed your choices down to two options. One set costs $525 but they only are rated for 35,000 miles. The other set costs $610 and is rated for 50,000 miles. At first glance, many people will choose the option that appears cheaper without ever realizing that set two is a much more valuable purchase.
When you use PavePro appropriately, you won’t have to use as much product for the same result, saving you money in the long run.
PavePro Will Extend The Life Of Your Paving Equipment
Here is something unique about PavePro: it can extend the life of a paving machine. Can you believe that? Working closely with some of our customers, we have found that PavePro lubricates the moving parts of the machine which decreases the wear and tear of the hot mix moving through it. As I mentioned earlier, the flash point allows PavePro to stay in the paver longer, unlike diesel fuel which immediately begins to flash out when the hot mix hits it. Keep your expensive equipment clean and protect your investment with PavePro.
Tired of your good-for-nothing asphalt solvent or release agent and ready to make a switch?
PavePro Prevents Unnecessary Downtime
Time is money and every second your paving machine sits on the side of the road or at the shop, you’re losing money. Almost every time we visit a customer, we hear about or see a piece of equipment broken down, not working, and not making any money. By using PavePro to prevent cold chunks from moving through the paving machine and lubricating moving parts, you’ll decrease your downtime using a product that you need to use anyways. It’s a no-brainer.
PavePro Is The Safest Asphalt Remover and Asphalt Solvent Available
We often talk about a story from a municipality in Ohio that experienced a dangerous explosion in a hot box during a pothole patching operation. As one employee was spraying a citrus-based release agent, which has a flash point around 115°F, another man was smoking a cigarette upwind from the hotbox. Ash flew through the air and into the hotbox which singed the other employee’s eyebrows and melted his shirt to his skin. The municipality got ahold of our team, we showed them how safe PavePro was, and they made the switch.
PavePro is also safe on skin and safe on your clothes. The solvency easily rinses away and deactivates with water, so it won’t harm your paint or aluminum either.
PavePro Is Safe For The Environment and Avoids Fines
DID YOU KNOW: Using diesel fuel as an asphalt remover or asphalt release agent violates the Clean Water Act of 1972, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. Non-compliance fines in the asphalt industry have reached up to $100,000 per day.
Here is the cool thing: This list is just scratching the surface. PavePro comes with many more benefits and a killer customer support team to ensure that your paving crew has the best experience with the most unique and powerful asphalt remover and asphalt release agent.
