Asphalt Paving FAQ - Roaron

Infrared heating is patching by recycling the existing asphalt pavement through a reheat process. This process creates no cold joints, allows for cool / wet weather patching, has minimal site impact, and is generally quick. It is not suitable for repairing oil damaged areas and has limitations of effectiveness on old oxidized asphalt.
