1. What is E-Krete™?
E-Krete™ is a patented Polymer Composite Micro-Overlay process (PCMO) that contains specially sized aggregates, Portland cement and acrylic modifiers.

2. What is it designed to do?
E-Krete™ is designed to be applied over asphalt roads and will protect the surface for 20+ years. It will eliminate asphalt’s greatest problems such as water intrusion, oxidation, and U.V. degradation.

3. Will it protect asphalt from automotive fuels?
Yes! E-Krete™ is completely impervious to all fuels, oils, and automotive fluids.

4. Is E-Krete™ environmentally safe?
Yes! E-Krete™ has no harmful ingredients to either humans or the environment!

5. How thick is E-Krete™?
E-Krete™ is best applied at 3mm thick. The strength of the material is in the thinness not in the thickness. It will last 4 times longer than asphalt because, E-Krete™, unlike asphalt, is not affected by the elements.

6. Can I put E-Krete™ over failed Asphalt and Old Chip Seal?
Yes, but, you must not wait too long. If the base has eroded from severe oxidation it may require too much material to stabilize. The base must be in “fair” shape. We cannot cure pavement cancer but we can prevent it from happening.

7. Can the E-Krete™ be colored?
Absolutely. It comes in standard light gray or it can be specially ordered in all the primary colors.

8. Does E-Krete™ have a written warranty?
Yes! E-Krete™ has a written 3-5years warranty from the manufacturer.

9. Will E-Krete™ crack?
Not on its own. It will only crack if the base cracks, and then the cracks do not widen from loss of aggregate (crack wall erosion) the way asphalt does.

10. Can you repair a crack in E-Krete™?
Yes! If a crack appears in the base simply pour E-Krete™ liquid into the cracks.

11. How long has the present formulation been around?
E-Krete™ was invented in Mississippi in 1996 and has been used in all types of applications such as interstate bridge decks, airport taxiways, B-1 Bomber parking pads, parking lot overlays, asphalt road overlays, banks and fast food drive-thru’s, oil spot repair, off-shore oil heli-decks, barge decks, and work boat walkways.

12. What is the true savings gained from the use of the E-Krete™ PCMO?
Over a 10-year period E-Krete™ saves in excess of US$70,000 per mile. E-Krete™ can be applied by county road crews or certified contractors.
