Infrared Repair

What is Infrared:

Infrared asphalt technology is an effective solution for critical repairs. This unique method blends hot-mix asphalt right in with the original and then compacts the area to create a seamless restoration.

The Repair Process:
The area to be repaired will be swept or blown clean, removing all loose aggregate, sand, and/or water. The surface area will be heated to 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes depending on the depth, season, and existing aggregate (typically 1-to-3 inches). Once the repair area has been heated, it will be raked to remove failed aggregate and a rejuvenator will be applied to replenish lost oils due to oxidation. Additional material will be applied to the area while raking and grading it to the proper level. Once the fresh material is placed, it will be compacted with a multi-ton vibratory roller and/or vibratory plate.
