Frictional mastic surface treatment is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, increased levels of angular ?ne aggregates, recycled materials, polymers and catalysts. The purpose of the treatment is to protect the pavement surface and extend its life, while minimizing future maintenance treatments.
Available in two models, the MA20 and MA30, the MAXX Applicator applies a material mix that is made to precise specification, resulting in fewer operator calculations and on-the-job adjustments, which minimizes operator training time.
The MA20 has a 2,000-gallon material tank and the MA30 features a 3,000-gallon material tank. In either model, this steel tank contains a hydraulically driven, full-sweep ribbon mixer with counterflow mixing technology that keeps the aggregates in suspension. In-cab controls eliminate the need for a rear operator by allowing the driver to operate all systems, including the mixer start/stop/reverse and spray bar start/stop, height and width, side-shift and individual nozzle controls. Application is computer controlled with an onboard system that ensures accurate application rates by continuously varying the pump rate, based on the truck speed and spray width.
The MAXX line offers a technologically advanced low-pressure system that operates at less than 40 psi. It provides single- or dual-pump operation, with more than 100 GPM delivered through the spray bar in single-pump mode and over 200 GPM delivered in dual-pump mode. In dual-pump operation, the product loads in less than 30 minutes. All systems are powered by PTO-driven hydraulic pumps.
