Crack and Joint Sealants (Hot or Cold Applied and Preformed)
Full product certification and individual property tests and evaluations for crack and joint sealerĀ are provided by PRI.

These services include non-asphalt based products typically used in bridge and concrete construction.

Each State DOT and/or Agency may have individual specifications but most are based on the AASHTO / ASTM specification listed.

A partial list follows. Other testing protocols are available; inquire if the specific test or property is not listed.
