Blacklidge products are spec’d by D.O.T.’s throughout the Southeast and Texas—exceeding all D.O.T. requirements—and have been used to pave thousands of miles of roads.

As creators of The Original Trackless Tack® and, most recently, ReSet® “age-regenerating” technology, we value innovation and are committed to developing products that make building GREAT roads EASY.

At Blacklidge, we’re revolutionizing asphalt road construction with innovative products that enhance performance and extend the life of a road.

Key Benefits

No Tracking
There’s NO tracking which also means there’s NO adhesive removal to weaken the pavement structure.

Safety
Our fast setting products reduce lane closure time during construction, and extend time between resurfacing intervals.

Best In Class
As the creators of The Original Trackless Tack®, Blacklidge leads the category in reliability and innovation.

Performance
UltraTack® and UltraFuse® have been proven in repeated testing to outperform ALL other competitive products by extending the fatigue life of the pavement.

Age Regeneration
ReSet®, our proprietary technology, restores the performance properties of asphalt binder by directly treating an aged road surface, or by repairing asphalt when using recycled materials such as RAP or RAS.

The District Engineers have given me feedback on The Original Trackless Tack®, as opposed to the regular tack. It makes their lives easier. And, there are fewer complaints; people drive through it and it doesn’t mess up their vehicle.
