Asphalt pavement is the most popular roadway or parking surface choice due to its wide variety of different applications.
The durability, economical price, speed of installation, and overall strength also heavily factor into it wide spread use.
Asphalt is the surface material of choice for parking lots all over the United States because asphalt easily withstands normal wear and tear plus heavier loads. Proper asphalt maintenance will keep your asphalt surface lasting lasts for many years to come.
Extend the life of any Asphalt Surface
The easiest way to extend the life of your asphalt parking lot is to develop a pavement maintenance plan involving regular inspections and periodic asphalt preservation and preventative maintenance techniques. Infrared asphalt technology is the most cost effective solution for crucial repairs. This revolutionary technique blends the hot mix asphalt directly on the original asphalt and then thoroughly compacts the repaired area to create a seamless asphalt restoration. When you notice potholes, specifically in higher traffic areas, pavement heaving, uneven asphalt surfaces surrounding the catch basins (a common asphalt issue that often results after several freeze and thaw cycles), or when scruffed up and rough surfaces in driving lanes or parking stalls, it is imperative that you should consider infrared asphalt repair.
Fast & Affordable Asphalt Repair
First, the affected area must be completely swept and blown clean, then remove all loose aggregate, sand, and water. The surface area is then heated to 325 degrees Fahrenheit for five to ten minutes depending on the asphalt depth, season, and existing aggregate. As soon as the affected area has been properly heated, raking occurs to remove failed aggregate and then a rejuvenator will be applied that replenishes the lost oils due to oxidation. Additional aggregate and material will be applied to the area so that it can be graded to the proper level. Once the fresh asphalt material is placed, it is then compacted with a multi-ton vibratory roller or asphalt vibratory plate.
Infrared Asphalt Repair Benefits
Infrared asphalt utilizes infrared rays that deeply penetrate the asphalt repair area and reclaim the area without causing burns, scaling, or separation of the asphalt from the asphalt aggregate. The main benefit is price by using less raw materials and manpower thus saving time. This asphalt repair option takes much less time than regular asphalt resurfacing repair techniques. Seamless asphalt repairs, as the patch easily bonds to existing asphalt surface producing absolutely zero joints for water penetration with less traffic interruption, the asphalt repair patch can also be driven on immediately after the repair.
