HDEs Infrared Asphalt Patchers will heat and soften a localized area of the asphalt, so that it can be reworked and re-compacted eliminating the surface deterioration. The highly efficient infrared heaters can soften the asphalt to original mixing temperatures within 5-10 minutes making the repair of an asphalt surface both effective and economical. Repairs can be made with minimal time expended and minor traffic re-routing.
The advantage of the infrared system is that repair work can be completed year round. Potholes are fixed permanently in the winter using hot asphalt, unlike cold patches.
