Infrared Patching is a method of blending new asphalt with existing – InfraredHeated – pavement material to create a joint-free integral patch.
The infrared process is versatile, enabling contractors to subtly control drainage, eliminate birdbaths, install speed bumps, eliminate oil spots, level trip hazards, place thermoplastic markings and install decorative pavements.The principle is to use an infrared heating unit to safely, fumelessly heat in-place asphalt, to soften it to a workable state, then add new asphalt which fuses seamlessly to the old.

the damaged area is squared off and scarified.
A small amount of asphalt
rejuvenator is applied to the entire scarified area.
Fresh asphalt is transferred from the
reclaimer and raked evenly throughout the patch and
