Aqua Patch - high-performance, permanent option for potholes and surface repairs
Aqua Patch is a permanent repair solution for asphalt and concrete applications. Aqua Patch is liquid-activated patching material that uses a proprietary blend of organic additives which are environmentally friendly, safe, and non-toxic.
Aqua Patch produces no hydrocarbon leaching or evaporation into the soil or atmosphere, and can be used in all types of weather – cold or warm, wet or dry. Water or moisture in the repair area is not a problem. Since Aqua Patch is liquid-activated, water actually helps accelerate the bonding and hardening process. No tack coat is required, streamlining the repair process. Visit our FAQs page for more information.
All asphalt products contain liquid asphalt - this applies to both Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) and Cold Mix Asphalt (CMA).
As you know, HMA hardens as it cools. On the other hand, most CMA use “cut back” which contains mineral oil to help the liquid asphalt in the CMA stay loose. When the mineral oil volatilizes the CMA hardens, but it never performs like HMA because the cut back has already broken down the composition of the asphalt. CMA has evolved over time with other additives used in place of cut back. While these additives help loosen the asphalt in normal temperatures, this type of CMA only hardens when compacted.
Aqua Patch is completely free of cut back or additives found in other CMA products. Aqua Patch has a proprietary blend of plant-based oil that creates a chemical reaction when it comes into contact with water. This innovative solution makes it possible to keep the asphalt loose without breaking the composition; and in variable temperatures it hardens as well as any HMA.
Aqua Patch is not a temporary patch, it is a permanent patch that will last for years, and in many cases can outlast HMA. Tests show the superior stability and durability of Aqua Patch.
Use Aqua Patch for asphalt road patching, concrete road repairs, pothole repairs, driveways, walkways, parking lots, bridge joints, utility cuts and manhole repairs. Visit our FAQs page for more information.
