and Usage of GeoFlo Asphalt Slurry and GeoSet
Driveways, Sidewalks, and Parking Lots – Repairs to these
structures are usually done either as individual fixes to retain
the serviceability of the structure, or as part of a resurfacing
of the structure. When a patch is made as part of an individual
fix, the benefit is that the surface will be available within an
hour and will be superior to the original surface. When the
patch is part of a total resurfacing, the benefit is that the
surfacing contractor doesn’t have to wait for concrete, or a
hot-mix company to do the patch. Repairs can be seal coated or
striped over quickly.
US DOT Approved for Our Highways
and Roads – GeoFlo is used to repair asphalt
potholes, alligatoring, cracking, pavement cuts, and surface
compaction (ruts). GeoSet is used to repair concrete cracks,
breakup, trip hazards, utility cuts, and joint openings.
The materials quick repair cycle means roads or highways need
only be closed for hours, not days.
Rapid Load Bearing
Bridge Repair – Bridges, because of their exposed nature
(open to ambient temperatures on top and bottom) are subject to
greater wear and maintenance than normal road bed. The
transitions to the bridge structure are points of wear that have
possible bonding problems with different materials. GeoFlo and
GeoSet provide quick repairs that handle the heavy wear, and
provide superior bonding to all materials (including steel
Airport Runway and Taxiways – Airports
suffer from extremely heavy loads. Highways are regulated to
have vehicle loads no greater than approximately 100,000 lbs.
Airports, on the other hand, routinely handle airplanes
exceeding 750,000 lbs. The GeoFlo and GeoSet products were
initially designed for NATO runways to meet these types of
loads. Airport runways are also critical resources that are hard
to close to traffic. The quick repair cycle means runways and
taxiways need only be closed for hours, not days.
Floor and Surface Restoration – Warehouse floors can develop
damage and wear from forklifts and heavy machinery. GeoSet and
GeoFlo can easily repair pitting, cracks, spalls, and
trip-hazards. The self-leveling material will restore any floor
surface to a smooth, attractive, and worker-safe condition.
Maintenance, man-hole covers – Man-hole covers and
other steel structures incorporated into the paving surface
provide special problems. Asphalt and Concrete normally separate
from the steel with temperature cycles. Water can then get
between the paving and steel, causing further expansion and
cracking of the paving. GeoFlo and GeoSet provide a permanent
seal, and are impervious to water, fuels, oils, and solvents.
Toxic, chemical, and food service handling areas –
Chemical handling areas provide special problems for repairs.
Because asphalt and cement can absorb chemical spills, GeoFlo
and GeoSet's impermeability to chemicals make it a superior
repair solution. Also ideal for food preparation and storage
areas, including sub-zero repair applications.
Each 5 Gallon Pail Kil kit of
Geo-Flo contains 38 pounds of specially treated aggregate, 2 -
1/2 gallon bottles of polymer and a 10 pound bag of topping
sand. Each 5 Gallon Pail Kit will cover approx. 50 Sq. feet.

GeoFlo is not a significant irritant. Nevertheless,
skin or eye contact may lead to sensitization. Protective gloves
and safety glasses should be worn. Wash hands before eating,
drinking or smoking after handling.
Remove loose and unsound material. Clean out with a brush or
blow out with compressed air any cracks or potholes. Apply only
to dry surfaces. Moist or damp surfaces will weaken GeoFlo's
ability to bond to the surface.
CAUTION: KEEP PAILS
SEALED UNTIL READY TO USE TO AVOID MOISTURE CONTAMINATION.
Remove 10 pound bag of topping sand and both A & B bottles of
polymer from the 5-gallon GeoFlo pail. Add A bottle of polymer
to the 5 gallon container of treated sand and mix with pail
mixer for 1-2 minutes until sand is completely wet. Next, add
all of B polymer and mix thoroughly for one minute. GeoFlo is
now ready to be applied to the pre-treated area and should be in
the form of a very pourable slurry. Working time will be
approximately 10 minutes at an ambient temperature of 75 degrees
Squeegee, screed, gauge-rake or trowel thin slurry over repair
area. The outer areas of the repair can be feathered into the
existing surface with a hand trowel. Once liquid material is
applied to the repair area, proceed to broadcast the repair
using all 10 pounds of the topping sand evenly over the repair
For one hour minimum at a temperature of 75 degrees F. allowing
approximately 30 minutes for every 5 degrees below 75 degrees.
For temperatures below 60 degrees add 1/2 the vial of the
supplied catalyst (1 oz.). For temperatures below 50 degrees add
the full 2 oz. bottle of catalyst. Colder temperatures will
dictate a slower cure rate.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS [FAQ]:
Q: Are GeoFlo repairs
environmentally safe? A: Repairs are environmentally safe
because NO toxic wastes are generated. With no pavement removal
no waste asphalt is generated.
Q: Are GeoFlo repairs
waterproof or chemically resistant ? A: GeoFlo Seals,
waterproofs and fuel-proofs asphalt, it is unaffected by dilute
acids and bases, gasoline, diesel, aviation fuel, antifreeze, or
lubricating oils and is insoluble in most solvents and
Q: Are GeoFlo repairs slippery ? A:
sand topping placed over GeoFlo creates a high traction
surface with a high coefficient of friction whether wet or dry.
Q: Do GeoFlo repairs hold up to snow plows ? A: Snow
plows will not damage properly applied, flush to grade GeoFlo
Q: Does GeoFlo stop water erosion of asphalt ? A: Asphalt deteriorates quickly with repetitive water runoff
found at car washes, outside restaurant kitchens, and with
landscape irrigation. Water damage to asphalt is stopped when
asphalt is resurfaced with GeoFlo.
Q: Can GeoFlo be
used large areas subjected to chemical spills ? A:
Resurfacing asphalt with GeoFlo protects asphalt from cooking
oil, oil dripping from cars, fuel, chemical, and toxic waste
spillage. Fuel storage & toxic waste sites, secondary
containment, service stations, fast food restaurants, airport
runways & aprons, parking lots and parking structures are
typical asphalt installations that benefit from resurfacing with
Q: Can GeoFlo repairs be used before placing
asphalt overlays ? A: GeoFlo asphalt repair of wide cracks,
raveling, and alligatoring in asphalt in asphalt repair prior to
overlaying, chip sealing, slurrying, or seal coating can provide
substantial savings compared to conventional labor sensitive
grinding and digouts with hot mix repairs. Load bearing GeoFlo
repair stops reflective cracks for asphalt overlays.
Are GeoFlo repairs affected by hot asphalt overlays ? A: GeoFlo repairs are NOT affected by hot asphalt overlays. There
is no softening and no melting. Asphalt overlays, chip and
slurry seals and micropaving bond to GeoFlo repairs.
Can all asphalt damage be repaired successfully with GeoFlo ? A: No. With severe base damage asphalt repairs with GeoFlo are
not durable. GeoFlo repairs are not recommended over asphalt
that has deteriorated because it is structurally inadequate.
