Seamless Infrared Asphalt Repair
A cost-effective alternative to traditional asphalt patching methods.
asphalt repair creates a seamless patch by heating the damaged asphalt, adding new asphalt
to the damaged area and compacting the resultant blend. Infrared uses
“invisible” infrared heat to recycle the existing asphalt.
The equipment produces intense infrared wavelengths that reach temperatures
exceeding 1200° Fahrenheit. These infrared waves penetrate the surface
of the existing asphalt and heat it to a depth necessary for the scarification
and repair of the damaged asphalt. The rejuvenator adds light oils that,
due to time, weather and wear, have been lost from the original asphalt.
The addition of fresh hot asphalt produces a seamless repair with heat-welded edges.
These fused seams don’t require crack seal or allow water to penetrate
to the limestone base the way a cut and patch sometimes can. The patch
is completed when it is brought up to the grade, leveled and compacted.
The Advantages of Seamless Infrared Asphalt Repair
It’s faster. The infrared system repairs a 6- by 8-foot section in less than 30 minutes.
No joints. There are no joints for water to penetrate this seamless
You can control liability. The infrared
asphalt repair system is excellent for elimination of potholes and various trip hazards.
Traffic tie-ups are minimized. Our equipment is mounted on one truck. Patched areas can be driven on
The process is clean and quiet. There are no jackhammers or machines to create noise, dust, and debris.
It’s ecological. There is no waste material to haul away. Infrared repair uses less raw
material than traditional patching methods.
Cut and Patch Asphalt Repair
Cut and Patch
asphalt repair is the standard for treating areas where damage to the asphalt has resulted
in a hole that has penetrated to the base. Typically such damage cannot
be treated by infrared due to the base’s poor condition, insufficient
thickness of the existing asphalt or because the asphalt has simply reached
the end of it’s life expectancy.
Consequently, the area must be cut out with a saw, removed, re-based and
re-paved with new asphalt.
