Introducing the Infrared Asphalt Restorer
The infrared process heats the asphalt surfaces to a consistency which allows for a smooth and level asphalt repair on road surface defects, such as:
- Utility Cuts
- Bird Baths
- High Spots
- Pavement Seams
- Manhole Covers
- Failed Repairs
Asphalt repairs in 30 Minutes or less!
Even severely aged asphalt will soften when heated (about 290 deg. F, 140 deg. C) to the flow point of the asphalt cement. INFRARED heaters are able to evenly raise the temperature of the asphalt repair area without burning or destroying the serviceability of the pavement. After heating to the proper temperature, the pavement mixture becomes fluid and can be raked level. Then the new hot mix asphalt is added to bring the repair area level with the existing asphalt around the repair. Leaving a seamless infrared asphalt repair.
Without this new equipment, it would have previously taken 5 – 6 hours to repair a pothole that is 6’ x 8’.
We are able to handle asphalt repairs quickly and economically, providing a superior finished product, using infrared (seamless) repairs.
Benefits of Infrared Asphalt Repairs
- Cost Effective - Since infrared repairs can be completed quickly, the cost of labor is kept to a minimum. There is also cost savings in raw materials. We can pinpoint exactly where the asphalt needs to be patched and use less materials.
- Less Traffic Interruptions - Asphalt can be driven on in a short period of time after it has been installed. Our trucks / equipment can be mobilized quickly and efficiently around the clock so you never have down time conducting your business.
Limitations of Infrared Asphalt Repairs
Failed Pavement - Raveled, alligator cracked or fatigue cracked asphalt will need to be repair in other ways. A new asphalt overlay or repairs to the base course may need to be done for a long term solution.
