Mastic is an aggregate and a binder, this could be thin-set, mortar, adhesive, asphalt, concrete, spray patch, poly flex, gap, etc. Mastic in terms of pavement preservation is used as a patching material made of polymer modified asphalts (sealants) and aggregate. Aggregate is generally specifically sized and engineered stone. The Cimline Pavement Maintenance Group has brought forth a machine that does this patching work. The machine is a C1 Mastic Mixer, which does a dual job of crack sealing and the mastic patch.
The C1 machine uses locally source specified stone aggregate and polymer-modified asphalts (sealants) to make a polymer-modified stone matrix patch, MASTIC, which can be made simply to the specific characteristics of any job requirement. The C1’s patent-pending technology is the only machine on the market that can field mix mastic on demand effectively and efficiently. Different sealants provide different pathing characteristics. The C1 Mastic Machine is a specialty piece of equipment that’s a combination crack seal and mastic patch machine, designed to heat 24,000-lb of mastic material in an 8-hour shift.
Concerning crack sealing, at the core of the C1 is the MAGMA M Series crack sealer. Using the standard 150-gallon tank size operators will continue to operate with the fastest melting and safest operating crack sealer in its class. For masting patching the C1 uses an innovative patent-pending design to provide contractors and government agencies the flexibility to perform both functions with minimal impact on traffic flow.
The standout features of the C1 machine are-
- Lowest load height and largest loading door in class
- Stress-free boom with center pivot
- Weather-proof simple seal controller
- Minimum impact on traffic
- All-Day production
- Easy operation
- Side discharge chute for ease of center line repairs
- Pivoting and heated trough for ease of placement
- Use locally sourced aggregate in patent-pending mixing system
- Onboard tool heater with standard box screed and iron
