Once the pavement has reached the correct temperature, the heater is then removed and a steel rake square's the area around the damaged surface to scarify the asphalt.
new asphalt is then added to the repair to bring the area up to grade. The new asphalt is then compacted, ensuring a watertight seamless patch.
Infrared patching also prevents dirt and water from penetrating into the base causing more pavement damage and expensive repairs.
Infrared repairs are proven to be more efficient, longer lasting and a cost effective way of repairing asphalt.
