Infrared For Asphalt Repair

A new asphalt repair technology

Repairing asphalt with Kasi infrared equipment will cut labor and material costs in half, and enables road crews to perform ultra-clean patching with no seams left behind for water and ice to get back under the repair. And the repairs can be made year round..

The infrared technique also provides superior repairs to roads, parking lots and driveways at savings of up to two-thirds the cost of conventional methods.

Now a new infrared asphalt repair technology enables city, county and state road crews to save lots of time, material and labor costs in repairing hazardous potholes, alligator cracking, failed utility cuts and other surface defects that plague their asphalt streets and parking lots – year round.

Potholes, trench cuts and other asphalt repairs are the bane of public works managers and road crews . . . ubiquitous, time-consuming, expensive to repair, tie up traffic and are hazardous to passenger cars, trucks, cyclists, skaters and pedestrians.

As opposed to conventional repair, which requires the removal of old asphalt from a damaged site and its replacement with new asphalt, the new infrared technology expedites repair by heating, fusing, and compacting recycled asphalt, saving equipment, labor, and new material in the process.

The infrared technique also provides superior repairs to roads, parking lots and driveways at savings of up to two-thirds the cost of conventional methods.

“The infrared system has enhanced our operations by reducing repair time and allowing us to repair larger surface areas,” says Steve Ortega, Street Operations Foreman Commerce City, CO (just north of Denver). “It also does a better repair then just filling a pothole or alligator cracking with new asphalt.”

The infrared equipment that Commerce City purchased is a trailer-mounted Kasi Proheat 2 Ton Minuteman model, a self-contained asphalt restoration system. It is ideal for permanently repairing all general asphalt defects including potholes, surface cracking, utility cuts, trenches, birdbaths and manholes.

[ED Note: We wonder if this process could be further improved by the careful use of Infrared Thermometers or Infrared Thermal Imagers to monitor and possibly control the process as the process of  installing asphalt road (roadstone) surfaces has already been.]
