Gee applies GSB ® to fend off the oxidation that starts immediately after the construction process and extend the life of the pavement by maintaining the flexibility of the asphalt. Pavement preservation represents a proactive approach in maintaining our existing street network. It (GSB ®) will reduce future costly, time consuming rehabilitation and reconstruction projects and associated traffic disruptions. With timely preservation we can provide the traveling public with improved safety and mobility, reduced congestion, and smoother, longer lasting pavements.

Longer life-cycle,
Higher benefit means lower cost,
Pavement service-life extended.


Halts oxidation, weathering, 
aging making pavements last and last.


GSB-88 ® penetrates into the pavement matrix and becomes part of the surface of asphalt, and is sensitive to our delicate environment — No nasty toxins running loose in your neighborhood.


Penetrates into the matrix,
Reduces closure time,
Minimizes safety hazards to public & crews.

The Downtown project was included in this year's fiscal budget. We will use a petroleum product — Gilsonite Resin GSB-88 ® — before the refining process. I'm excited. We will gain another 5 or 6 years on our streets by
doing this.

Why should the City of Council Bluffs choose to implement a long term pavement preservation strategy which includes a highly effective process called GSB-88®? Of course the decision should be based on performance and a lower the cost to the public. Reducing replacement intervals and improving the quality over a longer period of time and lowering cost should be the goal.

Some other very large and important agencies have chosen GSB-88®. The reason the FAA and DoD choose GSB-88® is based on a recent pavement preservation study conducted by the United States Navy Engineering Command. This study compared 10 commonly used coatings including Reclamite, fog seals, slurry coating, micro-slurry, GSB-88® and even overlays over a 5 year period and at over 200 locations. 5 years later 2000+ cores were taken, oils extracted, properties measured and a clear winner rose to the top, GSB-88®. GSB-88® preserved the oils inside pavements better, and longer. The Navy engineers conservatively predicted the doubling of pavement life when properly utilizing GSB-88®.

Even more compelling, when costs of all were compared GSB-88® returned with the lowest life-cycle cost and highest benefit to pavements treated! In fact, GSB-88® performed 2x better than the second best process. No small feat; several times better than chips seals, fog seals and slurry coatings.

For these reasons we recommend that the City adopt GSB-88® as the City of Des Moines, City of Davenport, City of Bettendorf, NDOR, the FAA, DoD and many others have as the preferred method for preserving good city streets, to keep them in good condition, and lengthen the life of our streets.

Makes sense to me to try something new. It’s going to be a lot less expensive than putting two more inches of asphalt on it.

I enjoyed working with you guys. We gave some constructive criticism and felt you guys took suggestions and advice with great professionalism and cooperation for opportunities to work together in the future.  Overall we the City of Lincoln are satisfied with the work performed, and product placed.  I know traffic became an issue at times but it seemed as though the crews were able to work through any problems or discrepancies that arose. Thank You.

Another winner Dan! The Gastonia program went well from what I saw, and heard. Garry Saine from Gastonia was pleased as well. Ross said the application went well, and I noticed the cure time was less than 2 hours. I was really surprised to see how many tractor trailers went over the GSB-88® in less than an hour with little to no tracking!! I believe Gastonia will give us some more work in the near future.

(GSB-88 ®) penetrates the asphalt and fills in all those (pothole) voids...We are proactive in trying to extend the lives of our pavements. One application of GSB-88 ® can last up to

10 years and delay expensive resurfacing projects.

For years the City of Des Moines has been actively seeking and implementing cost-saving Green Sustainable Strategies as part of a City Green Infrastructure Goal. GSB-88 ® applications have been proven to significantly reduce Global Warming, Ecotoxicity, Eutrophication, Smog, and Acidification —and last 2x longer than other processes.Sara Thies, Street Maintenance Administrator, has applied GSB-88 ® to City projects and has been very pleased with the results.
