Infrared Asphalt Heaters
RecycleWhy waste perfectly good asphalt when you can "Recycle and Repair"
Permanent RepairSeamless welded edges. No saw cut joints that allow water seepage to quickly deteriorate repairs. No freeze thaw issues that occur from traditional methods.
Cost EfficientMuch less new asphalt required. No unnecessary equipment, less manpower per repair. A green process that makes sense and profits.
Time SavingEliminate saw cutting, jack hammering, loading, trucking and disposal. The Infrared Process takes one-half the time of traditional methods of Asphalt Repair. There is only one trip to the jobsite. Less noise and less mess.
Typical UsesTrip hazards, paving "cold" seams, isolated failures, catch basins, manhole repairs, bird baths, potholes, utility cuts, decorative imprints and thermoplastic markings.
These versatile infrared asphalt recyclers are designed for common occurring asphalt problems - repair improper seams, sunken utility cuts, lower elevated or buckled surfaces, refinish manholes, potholes or other broken areas.
The penetrating infrared rays of the recyclers quickly soften the existing asphalt without burning. Typically the top 1 1/2" to 2" of asphalt is ready for raking within 7 - 10 minutes.
- Remove bird baths, lower high spots, repair catch basins
- Eliminate potholes, remove oil spots
- Correct asphalt imperfections & alligator cracking
- Thermoplastic installation
- Printing Asphalt
Once softened and scarified, hot mix is added to bring the recycled area back to proper grade.
Compacting produces a permanent hot patch level with the existing asphalt. Water seepage is eliminated because the repair is seamless.
The procedure described can be used to repair large areas by sequentially moving the KM 4-40 or KM 4-48 over the damaged area.
