What is the best type of asphalt repair?

Asphalt repair is used to patch a number of surface deformations and for pothole repair. It is also known as asphalt patching, and it’s a cost-effective way of carrying out highway preservation. By applying asphalt repair products to damaged sections of the highway or footpath, it reduces the need for extensive road resurfacing which can be disruptive and costly.

There are many different types of asphalt repair and highway preservation products available including surface dressing emulsions, micro asphalt, and pothole repair solutions. For example, here at BituChem, we offer a wide range of innovative highway preservation, micro asphalt and asphalt patching products including SuperCoat, FortCoat, PolBit, AirPatch, EasyPatch and Dragon Patch.

The Best Types Of Asphalt Repair

In our opinion, the best types of asphalt repair on the market today are those which are made to a high-quality and laid in the right way, under optimal conditions.

Asphalt Patching

Asphalt patching products are a fantastic way to repair potholes, cracks and other surface deformations. The benefit of using this type of application is that it is quick, safe and effective. They can be applied with minimal disruption to road users, and the efficient laying process (through the use of a spray tanker) protects operatives as it is all operated from within the cab. For this reason, asphalt patching is particularly effective for both planned and emergency pothole repair, as it can be deployed quickly.

At BituChem, our pothole repair solutions are wide-ranging. They include:

  • AirPatch – a polymer modified surface treatment engineered for durable highway repairs.
  • EasyPatch – a cost-effective manual process for pothole repair
  • Dragon Patch – an engineered application for use with ‘The Dragon’

Alongside the above, we also offer an un-modified version of our pothole repair products in order to flexibly meet your requirements.

Preservation Over Cure

In many cases, potholes and cracks are part and parcel of roads and footpaths. They are often formed in the wetter months, as a result of freeze-thaw action. When cracks form in a surface and water gets in, it expands as it freezes, which weakens the asphalt and the layers beneath. Over time, this is prone to further cracking and a pothole will eventually form.

Highway preservation solutions are used to keep surfaces in the very best condition, even for high traffic areas. Surface dressing emulsions and sealed surface dressing systems, for example, can be applied to new highways to lock down aggregate and prevent the ingress of water. This acts as a preservative and prevents potholes from forming in the future.
