Application Binder material is heated in the C-1 OIL JACKETED MELTER 390 DEGREES
Aggregate was size ¼’’, clean and heated to 390 degrees in the C-1. PLACED OVER AND GRAVITY POURED ON REPAIR AREA. ASPHALT HAND RAKES ARE USED TO POSITION MATERIAL IN REPAIR AREA, RESULTING IN AN ASTATIC REPAIR, MOST IMPORTANTLY PROVIDING A LONG-TERM REPAIR MEETING RIDE QUALITY STANDARDS.
RESULTS: Average size surface repairs ranged from 5 x 5 – 20-20 SF with average depth 1-4 inches.
