PRT Group Advises HOA Boards and Property Managers to Start a Cost Effective Asphalt Maintenance Program

PRT Group, a company based in North Fort Myers, FL, is advising homeowners association (HOA) boards and property managers to start a cost effective asphalt maintenance program and significantly increase their reserves to extend the life of the asphalt paving in their community. This was the company’s advice in their recently published blog post where they warned that the hot summer sun has exposed the asphalt to temperatures beyond 90 degrees for more than 90 days, which is a primary cause of asphalt deterioration.
Rodger Rowles, founding member of the PRT Group, says, “The PRT Group and our certified list of contractor dealers are committed to provide owners, HOA’s and managers the most economical and effective process to protect and extend the life of asphalt pavements. A well-designed asphalt maintenance program using the right product at the right time, is the key to giving your association the best return on investment. You now have numerous choices to consider but our chemical rejuvenation product penetrates the pavement and reverses oxidation. It has also been proven to extend the pavement life by five years with each application.”
The Conditioning Pavement Rejuvenator (CPR™) from the PRT Group is an asphalt rejuvenator that penetrates the asphalt and replaces the lost maltenes in the original asphalt pavement in order to restore the previous qualities of ductility, viscosity, and bitumen content when the asphalt pavement was still new. CPR™ is classified both as a reactive species and reactive penetrant that is made of three-part blended chemicals, unlike the conventional asphalt rejuvenators, which are emulsion sealers.
There are a number of benefits from CPR™. These include: the replacement of oils lost due to oxidation; sealing of the pavement against contaminants; extension of the useful life of the asphalt surface; restoration of the flexibility of aged asphalt; and revitalization of the asphalt binder. The PRT Group product, which is a premium liquid asphalt rejuvenator sealer, only needs to be reapplied every four to six years.
Meanwhile, the application of the PRT Group product is through the use of a high production, computer controlled equipment, thus offering a more precise and even application. This rejuvenator is applied by high production machinery that can complete 20,000 to 30,000 square yards per day. The actual costs of using the CPR™ will actually be lower for the long term because it needs to be applied less frequently.
It is important to note that the product is a penetrant and not a surface coating. This asphalt rejuvenator penetrates into the recycled asphalt pavement to plasticize or rejuvenate the asphalt binder with the goal of enhancing pavement performance and condition, and minimize expensive future cracking and repairs. Asphalt rejuvenators are suitable for asphalt pavements in airports, office buildings, shopping centers, condominium properties, hospitals, etc.
Furthermore, the CPR™ Rejuvenator requires only one coat and the application rate is one third compared to that of an emulsion sealer. Sand or additive is not needed. And because it penetrates the asphalt and is not a surface coating, it will not wear off or get washed away. It penetrates to a depth of 3/8 to 1/2 inch, protecting the asphalt pavement for four to six years, and it has a two year warranty.
Founded in the early 1990s, the PRT Group is an international organization of qualified dealers / applicators that are focused on the latest technology for the chemical rejuvenation of asphalt pavements. They are a global network of qualified contractors who can handle the CPR™, which is a unique chemical rejuvenator for asphalt that utilizes a one-step process. CPR™ can penetrate the asphalt pavement and revitalizes the blacktop while providing a fuel resistant and beautiful black finish. Company members of the PRT Group to date have applied millions of square yards of CPR™ for various companies, such as Unisys, Ikea, Volkswagen, NASA, FAA air ports, Chubb Insurance, US Air Force, and the US Army.
