Abstract:This paper describes field application problems experienced during the execution of a joint resealing program initiated within the limits of Region 10 (Nassau and Sufflok Counties) in the early 1980s. It describes what was done to overcome these problems. Solutions to such problems involved equipment modification and improved inspection technique. These modifications resulted in the virtual elimination of joint overfilling and a ten-fold performance improvement with regards to first-year intermittent bond adhesion failure. Worker safety and protection are discussed.
