Abstract: New York State Department of Transportation did in the 1970’ s initiate and execute field performance studies of formed in place sealants. The purpose of the study was to determine the best formed in place sealant for future use in a statewide maintenance joint resealing program. It was determined that after three years of service, that of the six formed in place sealants tested, the hot poured polyvinyl chloride compound conforming to ASTM D3406, performed best.
A maintenance joint resealing program was executed in our region. (Region 10, Nassau and Suffolk Counties) in 1979. There were initial field application problems.
This report describes those problems and tells what was done to overcome them.
