Pavement Dressing Conditioner (PDC)What is PDC?

Pavement Dressing Conditioner (PDC) is a patented rejuvenator/sealer consisting of a blend of coal tar and petroleum oils designed to penetrate the pavement surface to rejuvenate and rehabilitate the asphaltic binder. The PDC is sprayed on the surface by a small, customized applicator.  The amount of PDC applied is determined by a pre-test, to obtain the optimum result.  Minimum surface preparation is involved. The treated surface can usually be reopened within 24 hours of completion.  PDC will not crack, peel or delaminate and provides total surface protection against fuel, oil and other contaminant spills with a uniform black finish. The product is professionally applied by members of the PDC Group, a network of contractors located throughout North America and Europe.

Carolina Pavement Technology, Inc. warrants from the date Asphalt Rejuvenator is applied and for a period of three years thereafter, the rejuvenator will not flake, peel or chip or Carolina Pavement Technology, Inc. will reapply as necessary. Further, Carolina Pavement Technology, Inc. will warrant the treated surface to be fuel resistant and remain fuel resistant for a period of three years after the date of application.

Carolina Pavement further warrants the asphalt rejuvenator will reduce the viscosity (ASTMD-2170) in the top one half inch of the treated asphalt surface to rejuvenate and rehabilitate the asphaltic binder. The product is sprayed on the surface with a customized applicator. The amount of rejuvenator applied is determined by a pre-test, to obtain the optimum result. Minimum surface preparation is involved. The treated surface can usually reopen within 24 hours of completion. Asphalt Rejuvenator will NOT crack, peel or delaminate and provides surface protection against fuel, oil and other contaminants with a uniform black finish.

Pavement Condition experiences three stages of deterioration during the life of a pavement surface. Asphalt Rejuvenation is an effective method of delaying these effects and rejuvenating the asphaltic binder.

Stage I: Surface color fades to gray as a result of oxidation and surface oils begin to evaporate.
Stage II: Fine line cracking occurs along with loss of “fines” (minute crushing material) and the surface brittles.
Stage III: Deterioration accelerates with extended cracking, increasing brittleness and viscosity while reducing flexibility. Contaminates penetrate through crack, further hastening deterioration from below the surface.
