The Infrared Pavement Patching Process
First, the damaged section of pavement is heated to extremely high temperatures which allows fresh asphalt and a liquid binder to be mixed with existing pavement. This creates less waste and uses fewer material resources, making it cleaner for the environment and more cost effective to repair your pavement. The repaired section is then leveled and compacted to form a seamless patch in your pavement This seamless patch keeps water out, minimizing any potential for new damage.
Unlike other patching methods, infrared patching can be done in extremely cold weather, making it great for emergency repair work. Now you can avoid further pavement damage and limit liability risk from a slip or fall accident. trip hazards page
