Debris Removal and Crack Preparation

Proper crack preparation can more than double the service life of your crack sealant – saving you both time and money in the long run. Below are the tools to use to ensure that cracks are correctly routed and cleaned before applying sealant.

Model 30 Router™

Routing and sealing pavement cracks with a Standard Recessed Band-Aid (or over-band) can increase sealant life by over two-times that of non-routed and sealed cracks. There are four different pavement router models, many options and different cutters to meet your demands and exceed your expectations. The Crafco Pavement Router has been the industry best for thirty years.

See all the Model 30 Routers on the Crafco Router page

Crack-Vac 2™

The Crafco Crack-Vac 2 is the environmentally effective way to remove dirt and debris from cracks, dust free*. Cracks are cleaned and dirt removed from the job site as fast as the cracks are sealed.

*The Crafco Crack-Vac 2’s HEPA-rated after-filter reduces fugitive dust and crystalline silica particulates to as little as .3 microns,* achieving the industry’s lowest occupational exposure limits (OELs).

Features and Benefits:

  • Compressed forced air loosens debris while powerful suction removes it from the crack
  • Increases crack sealing efficiency
  • Available as a truck-mounted skid or trailer-based
