Infrared Asphalt Repairs in Conneticut
The infrared process uses an infrared heating unit to heat in-place asphalt to soften it to a workable state, then new asphalt can be added which fuses seamlessly to the old. The most popular example of the technology is in pothole repair. As compared to the old saw cut method, where a square of damaged asphalt is cut out, removed and filled with new, the infrared method eliminates the seams that quickly ruin such patches. Thus, the big advantage is the feathered joining of the new patch material to the surrounding pavement – no seams, no water infiltration. Saw cut seams permit rainfall to enter, which quickly introduces moisture and freeze/thaw damage into the patch. Many such patches have to be redone every year.
