As the New Year approaches, you, like many others, are probably wondering how your business can prepare its budget to see the greatest success in the coming year. That’s why in today’s blog post, we’ll remind you of a top-of-the-line crack sealing solution offered by LAB Manufacturing, called the Hot Air Lance, aka Heat Lance.
Hot Air Lances offer a handful of benefits to those in the crack sealing industry. With several models to fit your needs, a Heat Lance will save you a great amount of time and money, while ensuring proper preparation and sealant installation, in addition to opening the doors for more projects under inadequate weather conditions.
Read below for a further explanation of the benefits that Hot Air Lances have to offer. By the time you are done reading, you won’t need to look anywhere else for your crack sealing equipment needs in the New Year.
Given that Hot Air Lances may be more expensive than traditional alternatives like air blowers and brushes, you might think that purchasing one would mean a big hole in your pocket, however, this is not the case. Hot Air Lances ensure that the most important step of crack sealing, the preparation phase, is executed properly the first time around. By doing so, this prevents return trips to the same project, allowing you more availability to book additional projects throughout the year. At the end of the day, time is money!
Ensure Proper Application and Preparation
Making sure that your crack sealing project is completed properly the first time around is essential for the long-term success of your business. As the preparation phase is the most important step in your crack or joint sealing project, you’ll want to make sure that you have this part fully taken care of. Listed below are some features that LAB Manufacturing offers over its competitors to ensure that the preparation phase is executed properly the first time around:
- LAB Hot Air Lances release hot compressed air, drying moisture instantly and leaving the area ready for sealant installation. The flame is contained inside the combustion chamber. Did you used to send your crew home after rainfall? Now you can send them back out there with a hot air lance!
- LAB Hot Air Lances produce a cleaning blast up to 3000 feet per second of high velocity hot air, cleaning deep cracks quickly.
- LAB Hot Air Lances bring the pavement temperature to one that your crack sealant can perform in, even during the winter and cold seasons.
- LAB Hot Air Lances are manufactured for durability using stainless steel and other heavy-duty components, which provides a long life and highly durable product.
- LAB Manufacturing is the original patented manufacturer of the only flame-free combustion system on the market.
Reduce Time Spent On Projects
As a contractor, one of the last things you want to hear a customer say is “can you come back? My sealant is pulling up and wrapped around my tire”. A hot air lance can eliminate that worry by using high-velocity, flame-free hot air to instantly remove unwanted moisture and debris, leaving cracks clean, dry, and ready to fill. In the end, this will eliminate the need for any return trips back to your clients, saving you time, money, and inconvenience.
Open The Door For More Projects
Temperature is an extremely important factor to consider when it comes to beginning your crack sealing project. Normally, you want outdoor temperatures to range between 50°F and 75°F, leaving the asphalt at a temperature around 40°F and rising.
By adding a LAB Manufacturing Hot Air Lance to the mix, you can look the other way. LAB Manufacturing’s Hot Air Lances allow the user to dry and warm pavement surfaces prior to application during the coldest of months. This is made possible through the use of a hot air lance, which are capable of reaching temperatures of up to 3000°F.
Ultimately, Hot Air Lances allow your business to operate year-round!
