Infrared thermal bond bituminous pavement patching is a method of blending new blacktop with infrared heated existing blacktop to create a joint-free integral patch.
The machine is capable of heating the existing blacktop to a depth of approximately two inches without oxidation or burning. There is no flame in direct contact with the existing blacktop surface. The unit is also equipped with chambers which are capable of storing up to four ton of fresh bituminous materials at a consistent temperature no flame.
Depending on air temperature, the entire process will take from 15 to 20 minutes. Because the thermal bond patching machine hauls, stores, and heats, work can be done even when asphalt plants are not operating.
The process eliminates cold joints. Therefore, failure does not develop between the old pavement and the repaired area. Some great uses for this product are repair pot holes, alligator cracked areas, trip hazards and deteriorated paving seams and railroad crossings, or at manholes.
