Bahamas Striping President, Mr. Atario Mitchell is resurfacing the parking lot of The Seahorse Plaza in Grand Bahama with its new product Rejuvaseal.
Grand Bahama - Caribbean Pavement Solutions, a subsidiary of Bahamas
Striping Group of Companies, most recently introduced its revolutionary
product, Rejuvaseal to the Bahamian market.
is an asphalt rejuvenator which is designed to help preserve and
prevent the asphalt from degradation from oxidation from the weather,
water, fuel, and other elements.
Seahorse Plaza in Grand Bahama is the first recipient of the product.
Since the application of the product, it has now become an integral part
of the asphalt, and the longevity of the asphalt will increase to three
to five years.
Atario Mitchell and Training Manager, Brian Bostock have received
extensive training on the application process of Rejuvaseal.
Jason Kellar, Technical Director of Pavement Rejuvenation International
said, “Atario and his team are applying the product correctly and are
certified exclusively as applicators of the product for this region. It
is an impressive product and once persons can see the longevity of the
curb appeal of the asphalt, it will definitely spark more interest.”
Maintenance and road improvement are important factors for Bahamas Striping Group of Companies.
Mitchell indicated, “The Rejuvaseal product will be an industry changer
in the Bahamas because it is far more effective than the traditional
sealer on the basis of the life cycle guarantee cost of three to five
years. A traditional sealer, which is water based and slurry, and can be
found at any hardware store. It does not penetrate the asphalt, and it
cannot reintroduce oils that are lost through oxidation. Parking lots
with cracks and those which have faded will be repaired and will be able
to have a quality finished product. Looking at the overall improvements
to the shopping plaza, the owners, Milo Butler and Company, will be
pleased as the resurfacing of the parking lot complements the ongoing
and consistent work to reinvigorate the plaza.”
said asphalt pavements require systematic, routine, preventative
surface maintenance to preserve the pavement and mitigate the wear and
tear due to traffic and environmental effects.
added that the Bahamas has over one thousand five hundred and sixty
(1,560) miles of paved roads and forty eight (48) airfields that have
not been properly maintained over the years and undoubtedly will require
asphalt rejuvenation services and repair in order to bring the surface
of the runways, taxiways, and roads up to standard because the roads in
the Bahamas deteriorate quickly due to the heavy amounts of rainfall and
they are limestone based.
commitment and dedication to changing the modus operandi of how we
approach road maintenance in The Bahamas is clear as we have invested
in a precision spraying machine which costs eighty thousand dollars,
which was funded by The Bahamas Venture Fund. We are no longer a
striping company, we are now a company that offers full road
maintenance services that stripes roads, we can rejuvenate and provide
asphaltic services at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional
ripping and repaving methods, and repair pot holes.”
