This Heavy-Duty Patch Repairs Potholes, Cracks, and Man-holes for Good!
American roads and highways take a beating day in and day out – from the wear and tear of heavy-duty trucks and trailers riding over them to the harsh winter weather conditions that strip them away and accelerate their deterioration with sand and salt. That’s when American Road Patch by Saint-Gobain Adfors, “a leader in reinforcement technical textiles for construction markets” for 80 years, steps in with their “time-tested permanent pothole solution.”
American Road Patch can be applied in a myriad of situations. It’s super-efficient for repairing the asphalt damaged by potholes, cracks in the concrete sealing, uneven bridge joints, and speed bumps. It’s not a quick fix, but it provides long-lasting preservation, which has been tested and approved by many. Additionally, American Road Patch repairs the sealing that encompasses man-holes, utility-cut sealing, as well as the sealing around water utility lids. It’s also a solution for low spot fill-in repairs, rut in-fill, “alligatored” asphalt, and in-fill for abandoned road markers.
With a tensile strength of 350 PSI, American Road Patch is flexible in cold temperatures and has self-healing properties. It “extends the life of the repair, in most cases permanently,” ultimately saves on costs, and avoids lengthy traffic closures because it allows crews to catch up on pothole repairs and not have to revisit and repair old ones.
American Road Patch is utilized in several market sectors including Public Works Departments, State DOTs, Federal DOT, commercial/retail, commercial paving companies, airports, military bases, property management, etc.
For example, American Road Patch was implemented at the Duluth Airport Authority, which is a hub for F16 fighter planes that experiences a lot of movement, traffic, and harsh winter conditions. In a vicious cycle, the airport was constantly filling and refilling potholes due to consistent traffic loading and deterioration. Finally, in the Fall of 2019 after years of reoccurring repairs, the Duluth Airport Authority decided to remove and replace its old fill with American Road Patch. To further guarantee that none of the aggregates surfaced, the patch was tamped to embed the waterproofing membrane into the pavement. Today, after numerous snowfalls and plowing, American Road Patch is going strong!
