Traffic Giant Crack And Patch
after the patch has been applied, it will take about a month for the patch to completely cure before it is ready to be used. the patch should be thicker than a half-inch at the time of application and it is best to let it cure for a few days before using it. it is a good idea to keep it covered and out of the sun so it doesn’t dry out too much. keep in mind that it can still dry out after the first few hours so it’s a good idea to keep it covered.
you can’t tell if the patch is curing properly until it’s been in place for a few months, but you can check the thickness of the asphalt after it’s been applied. the asphalt patch should be at least a half-inch thick at the time of application. if it is thicker, then it will take longer for it to fully cure.
on a flat surface, place the patch material 1/4 inch thick over the area to be patched. smooth the patch and then let it dry thoroughly. for better results, apply a second coat at about the same time the first one is drying.
most pavement defects are caused by the breakdown of asphalt, either during construction or as a result of age. most repairs fall into three categories: patching, crack sealing and crack filling. patching is a process where small areas of broken pavement are repaired with new hot mix asphalt. crack sealing, or cold patching, involves using cold mix asphalt to fill cracks and fissures. crack filling involves filling cracks with loose, fine aggregate to prevent water from seeping into the underlying asphalt. in each case, the material must be compacted and sealed before it dries.
