Saturday, March 7th, 2015

hard_walks_patios_4_lrgWhether you’re repaving a driveway, having a new patio installed, or making a retaining wall for some terraced flower beds you want to make sure the job is done right. If you’re not a mason or paving specialist yourself, that means hiring one. But how do you know when a paving or masonry company is good?

What is Infrared Asphalt Repair?

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Asphalt pavement has become so universal primarily because it is extremely durable, highly cost effective, straightforward to install, and consistently strong. Used for parking lots and roadways the world over, asphalt can last for a long time, provided its given careful maintenance. When it comes to repairing serious asphalt damage one of the most effective methods is infrared repairs.

What is Infrared Asphalt Repair?

Infrared asphalt repair uses a combination of asphalt technologies to make fast repairs to severely damaged pavement. Infrared asphalt repair uses hot asphalt and extreme pressure to perfectly mix the new asphalt with the old. If you start spotting potholes or pavement cracking, infrared asphalt repair may be the solution.

How does it work?

First, the area in need of repair will have all its debris, loose aggregate, and water removed. Then infrared machinery will heat it to 325 degrees Fahrenheit for somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes (depending on how deep the area is and the level of asphalt integrity). After heating, the machinery will rake the area to eliminate failing aggregate before injecting specially formulated oils to bolster the strength of the existing asphalt. New hot asphalt will be poured in before a several-ton roller-compactor presses it flat.

Infrared Benefits

Infrared asphalt repair is popular largely due to its effectiveness at deep, subsurface repairs that maximize the reuse of old asphalt and minimize waste without causing asphalt/ aggregate separation or burning. Infrared asphalt repair is also incredibly affordable, using less raw material than traditional repair methods. The speed and thoroughness of the process minimizes both traffic interruptions and water penetration.
