Wacker Street, Chicago, Illinois

Cold weather climates provide some of the most difficult testing conditions that a pavement can be subjected too. This is certainly true for Chicago where in the winter of 1999 they had a record-breaking year in terms of freeze/thaw cycles. Unwittingly we were participating in a rigorous and exhaustive test to determine the performance of our products in freezing and salt de-icing conditions. After one season where other pavements were falling apart suffering from spalling and other surface damage, and other joint sand mixes were coming to pieces, the joint stabilizing sealer showed it’s resistance to these damaging conditions and came through with flying colors.
