NEW PRODUCT FLASH: E-Krete From PolyCon

NEW PRODUCT FLASH: E-Krete From PolyCon | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

Created, manufactured and distributed by PolyCon Manufacturing, E-Krete® is a durable polymer composite micro-overlay (PCMO™) that bonds securely to asphalt pavement, chip seal, polished stone, and other bituminous products, as well as concrete and primed metal.

E-Krete by PolyCon is designed to extend the life of asphalt and other surfaces.
E-Krete by PolyCon is designed to extend the life of asphalt and other surfaces.

E-Krete® is unaffected by water, UV, ice, oxidation, automotive fluids, aircraft fluids, oil, diesel, and gasoline. Cracks in oxidized pavement are filled by the PCMO™ material as the asphalt pavement is capped with a 1/8” lift of E-Krete®.  It is the only cementitious pavement preservation material approved by the FAA, EPA, and Army Corp of Engineers, and is currently in the approval process in several state Dept. of Transportations including MS, LA, AL, AR, TX, TN, and FL.

PolyCon provides a 10-year warranty on E-Krete®. The company states the product extends the life of asphalt pavement in excess of 20 years. It is recommended for asphalt and chip seal roads; taxiways and tarmacs; parking lots; interstate bridge decks; heliports; offshore oil rigs; bank and fast food drive throughs; oil spot repair; barge decks; work boat walkways; highly oxidized asphalt pavements; and any area where a high coefficient of friction is needed. E-Krete® provides a clean, high quality, quiet riding, skid resistant surface that arrests the deterioration of asphalt pavement caused by UV and rainwater intrusion.

The National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) at Auburn University found that E-Krete® provides an SRI (Solar Reflectivity Index) that meets and exceeds the requirement for LEED projects. E-Krete® reduces the heat by as much as 12°F compared to the heat which is absorbed and stored in asphalt.

Unlike traditional seal coating materials that contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), E-Krete®  has no PAHs and is recognized by the EPA as “reducing the need for resurfacing, sealing and replacement…thus eliminating the generation and release of PAH, coal tar materials, and hazardous solvents into the environment.”

  1. Would this product perform in very low temperature, freeze / thaw environments? We’re from Eastern Canada and pavement temperature extremes vary from -40 in the winter to +40 in the summer. I know this product has no strength, so I wonder how it’s going to hold up when our asphalt pavement is freezing / thawings. Also – what about plowing operations? Any idea how this product performs when there’s numerous plowing operation / winter season (approx. 100 or so). Any inforamtion would be helpful!
