Asphalt Systems Inc.
Asphalt Systems Inc., Kansas City, Missouri, offers GSB FrictionSeal™ for preservation/pavement maintenance projects. It’s a product that combines emulsion and aggregate and is applied via a specialized distributor. GSB stands for Gilsonite Sealer Binder, and it’s the key ingredient of the GSB sealer by ASI. The product is designed to halt surface deterioration, extend service life and slightly increase the pavement condition index (PCI) of a pavement, all while maintaining or improving friction. The pavement life is extended by getting a more substantial, heavier seal than a fog seal with friction-fine aggregate; yet a lighter seal than a chip seal, slurry seal or micro surfacing treatment, according to ASI. The treatment is applied via a specialized distributor truck. The sealer and friction-fine aggregate are administered in a separate, but simultaneous application via a single-pass system that ASI states does not require sweeping after treatment. GSB sealers infuse into, bind and restore the aged asphalt surface as they simultaneously seal it and protect it against oxidation, deterioration and chip loss.

Mauldin offers three new commercial class pavers this year. The three new models—the 1860, the 1560 and the 650 gravity fed paver—have undergone changes to help increase product performance while maintaining operator convenience.
The 1860, which replaces the long-running 1750-C, is powered by a Cummins 110HP Tier 4 Final engine. The redesigned tractor now has a larger 9.5-ton material capacity. The new lower conveyor uses heavy-duty greaseless heat rated bearings designed for longer life. The 1860 is propelled by larger 14-inch poly pad tracks for better traction.
The 1860 shares the same Silver 16 screed of the 1750-C, which has been in production for 15 years. The Silver 16 weighs 4,500 pounds and is paired with a 4-auger feed system. The electric heat for the screed still comes from a 16-kw 4-zone thermostatic control system.
