STAR MACRO-FLEX® is a true rubberizing, A/B (Acrylonitrile/Butadiene) latex based additive that significantly improves the performance of Refined Tar (RTS) based sealcoatings. STAR MACRO-FLEX® reinforces sealcoatings in the most desirable aspects of toughness, flexibility, viscosity for sand suspension and overall resistance to petrochemicals and de-icing salts. STAR MACROFLEX ® is not recommended for Asphalt Emulsion based sealcoatings.
Toughens the sealer film and improves tensile strength thus reducing
power steering marks, scuffing and tearing. Improves flexibility and
adhesion of the cured sealer film to the existing surface. Improves fuel
and chemical resistance of the cured film.
Improves flexibility and the ability to bridge minor surface (nonworking)
cracks in the pavement to eliminate water penetration and
extend the life of asphalt surfaces.
Boosts the viscosity of the diluted sealer and enables it to suspend
large quantities of sand effectively and uniformly. Eliminates sand roll
out, and the streaky appearance of a cured coating. Finished jobs will
have a more uniform-textured appearance.
Speeds up the drying time of sealcoatings.
The addition of STAR MACRO-FLEX® can allow a Refined Tar mix
design the ability to meet FAA Specifications.
Based on a polymer-emulsion; safe to handle and use. No health
hazards have been reported.
