JOINT-SEALING MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS

JOINT SEALING HAS CONSTITUTED A MAJOR MAINTENANCE PROBLEM OVER A PERIOD OF YEARS IN OHIO. VARIOUS TYPES OF BITUMINOUS MATERIALS AND HOT-POURED SEALER, RUBBER TYPE, HAVE BEEN USED EXTENSIVELY WITH FAIR TO GOOD RESULTS. EFFORTS WERE MADE TO FIND AN EASILY APPLIED, LONG-LASTING MATERIAL FOR THIS PURPOSE, AND EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED IN THE FALL OF 1951 WITH COLD-APPLIED READY-MIXED SEALING MATERIAL, RUBBER TYPE. THIS TEST, AND AN ADDITIONAL EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT IN FEBRUARY 1952, INDICATED DEFINITE POSSIBILITIES FOR BOTH MAINTENANCE AND CONSTRUCTION APPLICATION. THE COLD SEAL MATERIAL IS APPLIED BY MEANS OF A PRESSURE PUMP, HOSE, AND NOZZLE APPLICATOR, AND COVERED WITH PAPER STRIPPING TO PREVENT TRAFFIC PICK UP. APPLICATION AT NEAR FREEZING TEMPERATURES PERMITS FILLING OPERATIONS WHEN SLABS ARE CONTRACTED AND JOINTS ARE OPEN ENOUGH TO HOLD MATERIAL. /AUTHOR/
