EZ Street will perform best and achieve maximum longevity if the following installation procedures are followed.
Excavate the entire failed pavement surface and unstable base material (including any “alligator” cracked areas).
Clean foreign debris from the area to be patched utilizing a broom or compressed air.
Compact subgrade thoroughly to achieve a firm foundation. The preferred mode of base compaction would be a vibratory compactor plate or steel wheel roller; for small potholes, a hand tamp is acceptable.
Apply EZ Street material in a maximum two inch (2″) lifts.
Compact EZ Street after each lift utilizing a vibratory compactor plate or steel wheel roller.
The final EZ Street lift should be placed approximately ¾-1″ higher than the desired finished surface level prior to compaction allowing for optimal compaction and secondary compaction as a result of traffic flow.
