Crack Filler 5- gal
Crack Filler is a highly flexible, asbestos free, high solids filler for major and minor cracks. Used in conjunction with the PicklePave/Acrylotes 1000 system it can retard the growth of minor cracks (of a non-structural nature) and can smooth over structural cracks temporarily until permanent steps can be taken. Manufactured in a Neutral color, Crack Filler can be used for preliminary repairs during the playing season until a more complete resurfacing project can be undertaken. For a complete description of tennis court repair and maintenance problems, refer to the Sports Builders Association Repair and Maintenance Guide Specification.

SPECIFICATIONS CRACK FILLER
1.0 SURFACE PREPARATION
1.1 All surfaces to be repaired with Crack Filler shall be clean and free from loose dirt, dust, greases and oils. Cracks should be blown clean with an air compressor or high pressure water. Cracks shall be dry before application begins.
2.1 Cracks shall be hand-filled with square, snub-nose, hand trowel or broad knife with a narrow bead of material along crack. After the Crack Filler has been forced into the crack, the edges shall be wiped clean with a damp cloth (This prevents edge build up which would require sanding as a corrective measure).
2.2 After drying, any rough edges shall be sanded smooth, and loose material shall be carefully removed from the court by air-broom and/or sweeping.
2.3 The filled crack may be coated with PicklePave or Acrylotex for greater color stability if a complete surfacing system is not completed at the time
