What is Asphalt Patching
Asphalt patching is a necessary evil when it comes to maintaining roads, commercial driveways, and parking lot repair. Over time, exposure to the elements will take its toll on even the strongest asphalt surfaces. When potholes, cracks or other damage appear, it’s important to act quickly to repair the damage before it gets worse. That’s where our line of ProPatch® Cold Mix products comes in.
What Causes Potholes?
Water is the number one enemy of asphalt. When water seeps into cracks in the surface of the asphalt, it begins to break down the structure of the pavement. As vehicles drive over these areas, the weight of the traffic can cause the asphalt to crumble and collapse, creating a pothole. Permanent pothole repair can be difficult without the Cold Patch products from Innovative Surface Solutions.
Asphalt cracks are caused by several different factors, including weathering, wear and tear, and traffic. Over time, small cracks can become larger and more numerous, leading to the deterioration of the asphalt surface.
Cold Asphalt Filler vs. Hot Asphalt Filler
There are two main types of asphalt repair materials: cold mix and hot mix. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages that should be considered when making a decision about which type to use.
Cold Mix Asphalt Repair
Cold mix asphalt is a bituminous concrete mixture that can be used as a paving material or an asphalt patching material. It is made by mixing aggregate (sand, gravel, or crushed stone), bitumen emulsion, and water. This mixture is then placed in a vessel, such as a wheelbarrow, and allowed to cure for some time before being used.
The main advantage of cold mix asphalt repair products is that it can be used year-round, even in cold weather. It is also easier to work with than hot mix asphalt and does not require the use of special equipment. However, cold-mix asphalt is not as strong as hot-mix asphalt and is not suitable for all types of repairs.
Hot Mix Asphalt Repair
Hot mix asphalt (or hot asphalt) is a bituminous concrete mixture that is used as a paving material or an asphalt patching material. It is made by mixing aggregate (sand, gravel, or crushed stone), bitumen emulsion, and water. This mixture is then placed in a vessel, such as a wheelbarrow, and heated to approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
The main advantage of hot mix asphalt is that it is strong and durable. It can also be used in a wider variety of applications than cold mix asphalt. However, hot mix asphalt must be used within a few hours of being mixed, or it will harden and become unusable. Additionally, special equipment is required to heat and apply hot mix asphalt.
How the ProPatch Cold Mix Works
ProPatch Cold Mix is a versatile asphalt repair material that can be used in a wide range of applications. It is workable down to -10oC for year-round use, making it an ideal solution for northern climates where snow and ice can quickly turn small repairs into big problems.
