Establish safe work area
and direct traffic to safe distance.
Clean work area of standing water,
loose asphalt and dirt.
Place infrared heater over the centre
of damaged area. Large areas of damage can be
restored through consecutive heats.
On average, it takes 5-8 minutes to heat
the asphalt to 325˚. Time will vary based on material,
moisture and other variables.
Once the heater is removed,
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
into the trough created around the edges.
The repaired area is rolled and the hot asphalt
is fused to the hot existing road, thereby eliminating
The smoothed area is dusted
to remove any tackiness to allow for traffic
to continue immediately.
