PPP Takes Weather Monitoring Tool to Whole New Level

Professional Pavement Products Takes Pavement Maintenance Industry's Only Weather Monitoring Tool to Whole New Level

The DAF Scale - Know when the weather is best for sealcoating and striping

Professional Pavement Products is proud to announce that their popular weather-based DAF Scale is now available fully dynamic and nationwide at www.dafscale.com.

 

The pavement maintenance industry's first and only weather-based sealer and paint application indicator scale

The DAF, or Driskell Application Factoring Scale is the pavement maintenance industry's first and only weather-based sealer and paint application indicator scale. It tracks locally forecasted weather points to assist contractors in determining the best days and times to apply sealer and paint, enabling them to increase productivity while reducing risk and even assists in extending their application season.

Using a proprietary formula developed by PPP President, Greg Driskell, the DAF Scale analyzes several critical weather factors needed for successful application of sealer and pavement marking paint and translates them into a simplified, color-coded rating of 1 to 10.

The DAF Scale has been tested widely in the field for over two years and is proven to be accurate and reliable. Until now, it was previously available only to PPP customers located in the six cities PPP has warehouse outlets and six additional cities customers had voted for online.

The scale is based on weather forecasts provided by National Digital Forecast Database using 5-digit US zip codes. The scale is not yet available for international locations.

Driskell has spent over 20 years in the pavement industry as both contractor in the early days and supplier for the last 15 years. Driskell owns several companies that cater to the pavement industry.

@Jana, Thank you for your interest in the DAF Scale! At this time we do not have an App for the DAF Scale however, if you go to dafscale.com on your phone, enter the ZIP Code you would like to see most often, then bookmark the results page to your home screen (depending on what phone you have). This should create an icon on your phone’s home screen that when clicked will send you directly to that page. We will be working on DAF Scale Apps this year, so stay tuned!!
