An Infrared repair that is 5’6” x 7’6” in size only takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete, start to finish. Traffic issues are minimal and can be done on almost any asphalt problem that may arise. It is the most reliable and cost-effective means available in the field today.
Using Infrared, temps reach 325°F in as fast as 8 minutes but will not burn the asphalt. The asphalt will be heated to a depth of about 2” to 3”, reusing the existing asphalt as well as bringing it back to grade with hot virgin material. This seamless repair will outlast any other repair available at a fraction of the cost and completion times.
The typical process without Infrared leads to destruction of the asphalt, large amounts business lost to surrounding businesses because the area is blocked off while waiting for a crew to finish the process, as well as having unbonded seams which eventually leads to needing to perform the repair multiple times.
