In order to serve our clients better, we operate by repairing asphalt via infrared repair. The infrared process works by utilizing a proprietary process where the repair area is heated up, reworked, rejuvenated and compacted. This provides a permanent, seamless repair that recycles the existing asphalt – making it a very green alternative to the traditional “mill and fill” repair system. It is a process that is saving our clients money all across the board, especially when combined with an ongoing asphalt maintenance program.
The infrared waves raise the temperature of the asphalt progressively without overheating until the desired temperature is reached – typically 300-350 degrees Fahrenheit. The infrared waves penetrate to the depth of the top course of pavement which melts the asphalt as it is absorbed into the aggregate. The typical surface layer of the 2-2.5” (the entire surface course) is heated sufficiently for re-working. The result is the asphalt equivalent to fresh plant mix. In most cases, fresh mix is added from a heated hot box to bring the grade of the patch to the proper height. The patch is then compacted to form a seamless, watertight patch that will allow no water penetration to the seam.
There are a number of great reasons why you should choose infrared asphalt repair for your parking lot, driveway, or asphalt pavement:
Time: Repairs can be made in a fraction of the time of conventional repair work such as asphalt paving. Your asphalt surface can be opened to traffic within 30 minutes of the completion of the repair.
Quality: Infrared repair creates thermal bonding with the surrounding pavement making the repair an integral piece of the pavement. This means no seams for water to re-enter and cause joint failure.
Recycle: Most existing asphalt is recycled, leaving little or no waste material. The material being hauled away can be reduced by up to 95%
Labour: Repairs are fast and simple. Three EverLiners and less than 20 minutes are what is required for a typical repair.
Equipment: Infrared repairs often only need one truck and one asphalt compactor. This eliminates all the machinery typically associated with conventional repairs.
Cost: Savings realized in materials, manpower, machinery and convenience makes infrared repair the most cost-effective way to repair your asphalt in both the short term and the long run.
