“GSB-88® Sealer Binder cost about 8x less than the cost of applying new asphalt.”
--Matt Hawks, General Manager, White Cloud Casino
“Thank-you for introducing us to a cost-effective and efficient product (GSB-88®)! All airfield users agree it is a great improvement rejuvenating a deteriorated taxiway into an almost new system.”
--Shaun Germolus, Director of Operations, Duluth International Airport
"Analysis shows GSB-88® yields a Savings-To-Investment Ratio (SIR) Of 5.0
Here’s 2 scenarios with cost estimates. Which scenario can you relate to the most? Scenario 1
8 yrs after runway installation, some raveling is noticeable and identified as a potential safety hazard. Budget for a a full mill down and overlay resurfacing project and make shut down preparations for at least a month. Afterwards, for a time, runway operates well. However, in 5-8 yrs raveling detected again. Again, budget for a resurfacing project and shut down for repairs.
FHWA data states that $1 spent on Preservation reduces future replacement costs up to $10.80!
Known fact: A road is installed with a life-cycle. Often a decade passes and little is done to access its health. But soon, defects become unavoidable. Once the damage is visible, the binder remains unprotected and exposed. If left unchecked, it will continue to deteriorate at an alarming rate. At this stage, to stall further deterioration, temporary fixes often are applied--but the
Once pavement has hardened allowing moisture to enter the base and support structure of your pavement, the rate of deterioration and damage and cost to repair will accelerate significantly unless you act quickly. Choosing quality sealant materials and installing them correctly is critical to the long-term performance of any crack seal and is best handled by experts with knowledge, skill and the right equipment to do the job right. You can risk hiring cheaper contractors but i
Learn from more of our clients. Estimates from the National Center for Pavement Preservation state that for every $1 spent on Asphalt Preservation, up to $10.80 is realized in reduced replacement costs.
Pavement Preservation is "a program employing a network level, long-term strategy that enhances pavement performance by using an integrated, cost-effective set of practices that extend pavement life, improve safety and meet motorist expectations."

Today more than ever, concern for the environment is on the rise. We can no longer be complacent about how we use or waste our resources.
Preservation in essence, is caring about the future condition of the world we live in. The decisions we make today have consequences on our environment tomorrow. They are either positive or minimal in nature, or they are large and far reaching and very negative, and we have to live with it. The legacy we leave for our children and grand
To truly measure a products impact on the environment you must measure all the elements that go into it from cradle to grave.
GSB-88 was recently submitted to a rigorous and complete Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) conducted in accordance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) guidelines and qualifications which examines products to determine if they are truly green. With high scores in every category, GSB-88 received the ultimate reward, an Environmental
Has anybody noticed our pavements aging faster than they used to? Refineries find new ways every day to extract new chemicals from petroleum such as polymers, anti-oxidants, ultraviolet & infrared inhibitors and powerful epoxies. Economics 101 taught us that supply and demand drives cost, and the demand for these new super-refined components drives cost for asphalt cement up while we simultaneously witness lowered performance in the real world. Ouch! That is double indemnity!
All seal coats are not the same! During thermal expansion and contraction cycles GSB-88 expands and moves at the same rate as asphalt pavement because Gilsonite IS asphalt cement! GSB-88 retains EVERY vital component; polar compounds, maltenes and asphaltenes. While modern highly refined
"fractioned" binders may meet specifications, because vital components have been removed, they experience more rapid oxidation and degradation!
