Product Description
Infrared pavement heaters are used to create a “Thermal Bond” with newly added material for patching of localized areas.  A pavement heater is placed over the area to be addressed then heated to a workable temperature 200ᴼ-300ᴼF.  The heated surface is then scarified using iron rakes.  New admixture is introduced and reworked (leveled) and compacted.  Admixtures and sealants are introduced as required.
