Infrared Asphalt repair

When you heat asphalt, you bring it back to workable consistency just like the day it was first paved. Thus, you can make repairs instead of replacing it. In cutting and replacing asphalt, it gives you a new surface but doesn’t keep the edges from raveling. The only way to secure the edges is to heat the surface to make a thermal bond between the repair spot and the surrounding asphalt so that no water or dirt will be able to enter the crevices.

Asphalt Repair​

Infrared patching allows deep penetration repair and recycling which is more compact and bonds to existing surface leaving no joints for water to seep through for a shorter period of repair time. Since the patch can be driven on almost immediately, there is less traffic interruptions. For extreme cases, Asphalt resurfacing or overlays is the best solution to repair large sections of interconnecting cracks (alligator areas) and /or standing water on the pavements (grade depressions).
