Neal Manufacturing Upgrades DA-350 Sealcoating Machine to Increase Productivity and Ease of Use

Neal Manufacturing, an industry pioneer in asphalt sealcoating equipment, upgraded its DA-350 Dual Applicator sealcoating machine to enhance productivity and ease of use. The three-wheeled, self-propelled unit has a 350-gallon tank and allows contractors to apply sealcoat with squeegee and spray systems.

Neal added a high-powered blower to the front of the DA-350 to help users quickly and easily prepare the surface for sealcoat application. The blower produces more than 6,000 cfm, triple the output of a typical walk-behind blower, for fast and thorough dirt and debris clearing. The blower unit rotates, allowing contractors to lock it in an upright position for transportation or move it down for operation. The nozzle on the blower articulates 360 degrees enabling the contractor to blow debris in the optimum direction. Once the blower cleans the area, a 40-gallon fogger system cools surfaces prior to application to ensure optimal adhesion.

Bergkamp’s New MA30 Applies Mastic Surface Treatment to Preserve Asphalt Pavement

Bergkamp Inc., is introducing the MA30 Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment Applicator that allows contractors and government agencies to apply Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment over highways, roads, parking lots and airport runways to protect the surface and extend the life of the pavement. It applies a material mix that is made to precise specification, which results in fewer operator calculations and on-the-job adjustments, minimizing operator training time. The full-length ribbon mixer works to maintain the proper material consistency, regardless of the truck engine speed during transport to the job site. The Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment is then applied over the existing pavement through a variable width, low pressure spray bar that has side-shift capabilities.

Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, increased levels of angular fine aggregates, recycled materials, polymers and catalysts. The purpose of Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment is to minimize future maintenance treatments and get traffic back on the pavement more quickly.
