How the Pothole Repair Works with Infrared Technology
The pothole repair area will be clean by brooms and blowers. All loose aggregate will be removed from the patch area along with any standing water. The surface will then be heated to 325 degree between 5-12 minutes based on climate conditions and depth needed.
A typical repair will be from 2-3 inches. when the area to be repaired has reach the proper temperature, the edge of the repair will be raked. Once the perimeter of the repair is set, the entire repair area will be raked with any failed aggregate being removed.
A rejuvenator will be applied to the patch area to replenish any lost oils due to oxidation. Additional hot asphalt material will then be added so the area can be raked and graded. The area will then be compacted with a multi-ton vibratory roller and or a vibratory plate depending on the patch location. No edges need to be tacked because you now have a seamless repair.
Note on all the pothole repair photos below, all of the edges are seamless, leaving no weak spots in the patch.
