What Is It?
Quick road repairs used to require large crews, heavy equipment, perfect weather, and a hefty invoice to boot. Kind of like fishing with dynamite. Revolutionary Aquaphalt offers a better solution.
Used successfully in Europe for years, Aquaphalt is the first pre-mixed, permanent repair material that is enduring, high-performing and 100% environmentally friendly. Aquaphalt’s proprietary “green” binder reacts and hardens with solely water—unlike other asphalt patching products available on the market today containing toxic petroleum-based solvents with volatile organic compounds. And Aquaphalt can be laid directly from its container, so no repeat repairs or overhead costs are required. In today’s economy, eliminating additional equipment, material and labor costs for the same lasting repair is a top priority.
While other cold patch products claim durability and immediate set-up, if you’ve ever stepped in a utility cut while crossing the street that resembled a rocky sludge, you know the other products remain pliable far beyond application. On top of that, those fillers must eventually be replaced by permanent pavement materials. Only Aquaphalt sets-up fast and permanently for superior results. From potholes to manholes and utility cuts to driveways and tennis courts, in the world of asphalt and concrete, we’ve learned that stable base materials plus enduring binders equal unlimited potential for all of our customers.
The first asphalt and concrete repair product with true staying-power, along with the knowledgeable sales and support staff to back it up, Aquaphalt is the revolutionary answer for fast, quality road repairs.
Aquaphalt drastically reduces costs, environmental risks, and traffic congestion. Not only is Aquaphalt easy to use even in wet and cold conditions, but no special preparations are required, and roads may be open to traffic immediately. It also has a 12 month shelf life. And did we mention its skid and rutting resistance?
Aquaphalt is the right choice for enduring repairs.
In a recent Virginia Department of Transportation study of the use of Aquaphalt, the site of repair was visited routinely in the first two to three weeks of service to make certain it performed adequately with added inclement weather. The primary roadway distresses of great concern for typical cold mix patching materials are bleeding, rutting and dishing (further compaction under traffic), debonding, raveling and pushing and shoving. After visiting once a month to-date, VDOT officials have found absolutely no signs of pushing, shoving or rutting in the patch—all dangers associated with a weak and unstable mix.
Aquaphalt is the first permanent asphalt repair available in the U. S., and it is the cost-effective solution to various repairs:
- Asphalt roadway patching
- Pothole repair
- Concrete road repairs
- Manhole repairs
- Utility cuts and repairs
- Driveways, pathways and tennis courts
See It In Action
No need to mobilize large crews and equipment, Aquaphalt is simply poured into the area to be repaired, leveled with a rake or trowel, sprinkled with water and compacted with a hand-tamper or roller.
1 Remove all loose debris and sweep clean the area to be patched.
2 Place material in hole and level with a rake or shovel. Ensure that the material stands above the existing surface to allow for compaction. If the depth of the area to be patched is greater than 2.5 inches, place material in two layers.
3 Soak material evenly with water; 1 gallon of water per container is recommended. Excess water will not damage the material!
4 Compact to a smooth finish with a hand-tamper or roller.
*Note—Since Aquaphalt binds and cures with water, it should be stored in its sealed container until just prior to use to prevent it from reacting with ambient moisture.
