Installation Questions

How is Endurablend™ installed?

Endurablend™ is installed using specially designed mixing and placing equipment by certified installers. Depending on the size of the job, the installer will establish a planned closure, prepare the surface, place the coating (spray or squeegeed) in a designed configuration (color, texture, pattern and finish modification) and remove the closure.

Can an Endurablend™ System be installed in snow plow climates?

Yes, Endurablend™ Systems have been installed for over ten years in areas where snow plows are frequently used. Because of its durability and thin application, the coated surfaces are unaffected by plow blades.

Can Endurablend™ Systems be installed in any location?

Yes, it can be installed in any location from busy urban areas to rural municipalities.

Who can install Endurablend™ Systems?

Our team at Pavement Surface Coatings and our growing global network of authorized installers can both install Endurablend Systems. If an installer is not available in your area, we will work diligently to locate an installation professional. If the logistics and schedules permit, we will fulfill the installation.

What are the optimum installation conditions for Endurablend™ Systems?
The standard minimum recommended ambient air temperature needs to be 50° F and rising. The optimum environmental conditions for installing the material is 68° F to 86° F with relative humidity (e.g. 50%) which will result in a curing time of 2 hours or less. Under such conditions the section can be opened to traffic in less than 2 hours. The maximum recommended ambient temperature for installation of Endurablend™ systems is 95° F. For conditions that are outside these recommended boundary conditions, the mixing and placement operation needs to be tailored by Pavement Surface Coatings.
Can Endurablend™ Systems be applied on newly laid asphalt or newly applied crack filler?

Yes. It is recommended that the asphalt surface be allowed to cure for at least 2 weeks before installing Endurablend. This allows the surface volatiles to evaporate or be removed by traffic to prevent tracking on decorative features.

How is Endurablend™ Systems applied over asphalt or concrete surfaces that exhibit thermal, longitudinal, lane widening, or construction joint cracking?

Where discrete cracking exists on the road surface, it is recommended to treat the cracks appropriately by cleaning and routing and then applying an Endurablend pretreatment layer. After this treatment has cured, the application of the designed Endurablend System can proceed.
