Pavement Protectors offers the latest in asphalt infrared repair technology

With the infrared repair restoration process almost any asphalt damage can be repaired to nearly like new conditions. In addition, this can be done in a fraction of the time and with a more permanent repair than the conventional method of saw cut, removal and replacement of asphalt.
Our asphalt restoration process uses industry-leading infrared technology.
We begin by cleaning the work area the infrared panel is then lowered over the damaged area. Once the existing asphalt is heated to working temperature the damaged area is pictured framed and scarifier adding rejuvenator to the old asphalt. If more material is needed new mix is then taken from our 2 ton asphalt reclaimer and spread into the repair area. Our team finish rakes the patched smooth and to grade before rolling. Since the surrounding surface of the repair is heated once the work area has been compact with a vibe roller the asphalt patch becomes thermal bonded to the existing asphalt making the patch a seamless permanent repair.
Use of the infrared system does not disturb the sub-base, so when the patch is compacted there is little worry about the asphalt sinking over time. Once the asphalt as been seal coated it is almost impossible to tell where the new patch has been made. Infrared repairs last as long as the surrounding asphalt.
