Sawing in asphalt and concrete pavements is common
today. Streets and highways no longer need to be broken
or damaged with drop-hammers.
Sawing is often written into specifications due to its
vibration-free, clean operation and ease of patching.
Green sawing can make relief joints in the concrete that
has set but not appreciably hardened. This process is
done to control random cracking by sawing uniform joint
spacing in early age concrete without tearing or
dislocating the aggregate in the mix. The joint may then
be widened if needed to meet specifications.
STRIPE FORCE 1© can also clean the joints to prepare the
slab for sealing.
