How do I repair a pothole using Cold mix Asphalt
It is easy to use and requires no special equipment other than a spade a something to compact the cold asphalt.The unique formulation of Bitumend Coldmix enables this cold mix asphalt to “go off” or start to set when it is compacted in an open environment outside the bag.
- Clean the hole of any debris and remove any loose pieces around the hole (and if possible give yourself a vertical edge around the hole for the Bitumend Coldmix to butt up against – it lengthens the life of the repair)
- Fill the hole with Bitumend Coldmix
- Crowning – Make middle slightly higher than the sides – this is called crowning – depending on the size of the repair give yourself a 5-10cm crown – this counteracts the subsidence caused by compacting
- Compact – a compactor is recommended for larger holes while driving back and forth over it in a vehicle(eg 4×4) is also very effective. Timber posts can also be used as a compactor on smaller holes.
