How to Use a Crack Filling Machine - Crack Filling Procedure

If you haven’t used crack filling equipment before, here are some tips on how to use your crack sealer machine to its full efficiency:

  • Control the temperature. Hot pour rubberized crack filler blocks of crack fill are fully melted in an asphalt melter applicator at 350º. Prevent crystallization by turning down the regulator at this point.
  • Properly load your crack sealer machine. Always wear safety gloves before loading the filler into your machine. Be sure to lean the rubber blocks toward the valving system when loading from the front or side of your machine.
  • Only use the amount of material you need. Never overload your machine with filler. During the crack fill process, most machines will limit how much material is being laid to prevent overapplication.
  • Use a Heat Lance and an asphalt crack squeegee. A heat lance can be used to clean your machine, burn unwanted vegetation, and heat your valving system if any unexpected blockage may occur. Asphalt squeegees are great for spreading out crack filler that can’t be leveled out by your crack filling machine.
  • Use the proper crack filler material. Different jobs require different crack fillers. The 3 types of crack filling material are liquid crack filler, rubberized crack filler, and oil-jacketed crack filler. The table below breaks down each type:

Lastly, the final person will use a crack melter applicator to fill the cracks and ensure a proper application and seal.
