Longer life-cycle means less reinvestment,

Won't track into buildings.

Postponed Reconstruction

GSB-88 ® penetrates into the pavement matrix and becomes part of the surface of asphalt, and is sensitive to our delicate environment.

I can't say enough good things about the Gee Crew! Any
issue or request I made was immediately addressed.
The planning made all the difference in the world; a
color-coded breakdown of each section with completion dates, communications with the merchants letting them know the schedule and immediately informing them of any changes...it went extremely well. Thanks!

May Centers is very satisfied with GSB-88 ® and over the years of wear and tear it has held up tremendously well. We will continue to use it on upcoming projects. We have used other products over the years but they do not compare to the quality of the GSB-88 ® application.

There are several companies that apply GSB® around the country in their own local area, but the best national company I know of is Gee Asphalt Systems…In my opinion the honesty and commitment of Gee Asphalt is second to none.

This letter is in response to the GSB-88 ® seal coat we tested here at this property. As you are fully aware the test section was an area that was overlaid late in the season during the previous year. As a result it showed extreme raveling with excessive loose aggregate and a very porous surface. The subsequent test application of GSB-88 ® has corrected this problem and has no doubt prolonged the life of this surface. It is evident the surface would have to have been replaced if not for the

GSB-88 ® application. I feel your preventive maintenance system of sealing and preserving asphalt pavement is one our industry is ready for. Thank you for your assistance in providing a solution to our problem.

Operations Manager, Northpark Mall

I’m happy to provide an unconditional testimonial for two reasons: experience with GSB-88 ® sealant performance and trust in Gee Asphalt Systems with our projects. Over 25 years ago a client asked us to evaluate

GSB ® for use on their pavements. We were impressed by the long performance history and obvious pavement benefit. A recent Corps of Engineers’ report confirmed our empirical observations. The sealant producer, Asphalt Systems, Inc., was equally impressive. The research behind the sealants and the manufacturing facilities were solid. Everyone at Gee Asphalt Systems, from the owner to office staff to field crews, are professional and act with integrity. They understand our shopping center clients and work diligently to minimize customer inconvenience.

We tested Meltdown, a liquid magnesium chloride de-icer, distributed by Gee Asphalt. The product was applied as an anti-icer treatment to pavement surfaces prior to snowfall. Our treated pavements remained wet and slip resistant and provided us with extra time to react to the changing conditions and minimize the risk of slip and fall accidents. The application of the product is not labor intensive. We found also that as an additional benefit that accumulating ice and snow did not adhere to pavement surfaces and is easily removed with mechanical means. MeltDown liquid de-icer saved us time and money and reduced the exposure to slip and fall accidents. Liquid magnesium chloride is being tested widely in the snow belt and with very promising results.

Dan,

Just wanted to let you know your guys did a great job on the parking lot.

I first used GSB ® in 1984 as a test at one of General Growth's malls (Northpark Mall - Davenport, IA). We were not only impressed with the results but also with Gee Asphalt and their work crews. We have been using Gee Asphalt and GSB ® products to preserve and extend the life of our mall parking lots for more than 20 years. In my opinion, GSB ® is the only asphalt seal coating material that penetrates into the asphalt surface, binds it together and prolongs its useful life. I highly recommend Gee Asphalt and GSB ® products.

We field tested MeltDown liquid de-icer (magnesium chloride) along with a number of other de-icers. As a result of our testing we have chosen MeltDown as our anti-icer/de-icer product of choice. MeltDown was chosen based on its performance and friendliness compared to the other de-icers. The major performance characteristic we discovered was the low temperature melting (-10F), the speed at which it activates, the actual melting power (how much it melts before diluting), and the lack of complaints for tracking. MeltDown also proved to be friendly to our crews and we did not observe burn damage to vegetation or spalling of our concrete.Another benefit is the budget savings we are able to achieve using MeltDown. Due to it's effectiveness we discovered we were able to use less product to achieve the same or better results than previously obtained when using other de-icers. In addition, we eliminated the process of stripping and re-waxing all of the mall floors every spring, a significant savings of $25,000 per year. This savings alone is large enough to cover the entire cost of our de-icer purchases for the entire winter season! The end result was a significant budget savings through reduced product consumption, labor and patrol costs, and anticipated reduction of "slip and fall" liability claims. We look forward the continued service and expanding the use of MeltDown this year and in the future.

Tom Pederson

Director of Operations, The Empire Mall

Thank you for finding us a quality liquid ice melt product! MeltDown allows us to lay down an ice barrier. This barrier greatly aids in preventing ice from bonding to paved surfaces and makes removal of packed snow and ice build-up much easier without spending most of our time chipping ice. MeltDown is the largest labor saving product to come along in a long time. Everyone in this business has to be aware of slip and falls. Keeping your walking surfaces free from snow and ice greatly reduces this risk. I cannot say enough in support of this product.
