What is Infrared Asphalt Repair?
A simple explanation of this type of repair is that by heating up the old road surface, new asphalt can be mixed into the existing surface and then re-hardened to seamlessly strengthen it and create one finalized, impenetrable surface. Specialized machinery is needed, as well as highly trained staff, but the process is fairly quick and the freshly paved area can almost immediately be used.
The area must first be cleaned, then it’s heated to around 325 degrees, then raking and mixing of old and new asphalt takes place, then the surface is rolled and compressed. It is a very economical method of repair and one that doesn’t leave filled, yet visibly patched, cracks and potholes behind.
