Infrared Patching is the process of combining hot-mix asphalt with the existing damaged asphalt to compact the area for a smooth, seamless finish. In cold weather climates, cracks, divots, potholes, heaving, uneven or rough asphalt surfaces are often a result of several freeze-thaw cycles. Infrared asphalt repair is often referred to as cold weather patching and is a temporary solution until further pavement maintenance can be performed.
To complete an infrared repair, the distressed area will be swept clean to remove any loose debris. For 5-15 minutes, the damaged asphalt is heated to 325 degrees and raked as a rejuvenator and additional asphalt is placed in the area. To complete the process, a roller will compact the material, setting it in place.
