How Is Aquaphalt™ Better Than Other Asphalt Patch Or Repair Products?

In three simple ways:

How Long Does Aquaphalt™ Take To Set Up?

In normal conditions Aquaphalt’s proprietary binder reacts with water within 15 minutes and roadway repairs can be opened to normal traffic upon completion of work. In fact, road traffic actually helps with final compaction of the product. Within 24 hours, the repair is completely set up and permanent.

Can I Apply A Seal Coat On Top Of Aquaphalt™?

A ‘GREEN’ [no VOC content] sealer can be applied upon completion of compaction. If using a sealer that contains VOC’s, wait 24 hours for Aquaphalt™ to cure completely

How Long Does Aquaphalt™ Last?

Aquaphalt™ is the real permanent repair. The repair will be stronger than the surrounding material and typically outlasts the surrounding material. Existing repairs in Europe are in excess of 10 years old and still in excellent condition. The VDOT Field Trial patch, installed in January of 2008 in Sandstone, VA is still in excellent shape today.

What Is The Shelf Life Of Aquaphalt™?

Aquaphalt™ reacts with water – thus will also react with moisture in the air. Therefore, shelf-life of an open container depends on how well the package is resealed and the humidity in its environment. An open container will get hard with ambient air in a matter of days; a sealed container will last 12 months, properly stored, from the date of production.

How Should I Store Aquaphalt™?

Store Aquaphalt in a cool, dry place and avoid freezing temperatures. Lengthy exposure to hot temperatures may cause liquid to settle at the bottom of the container. It is advisable to invert the container when carrying it to the job site (ie: you can put it in your truck upside-down). If the product freezes, allow it to thaw before use.

How Is Aquaphalt™ “Environmentally Friendly?”

Unlike other asphalt repair products containing toxic solvents, Aquaphalt has a proprietary, plant-based binder which is completely safe to the environment and contains absolutely no VOCs. Aquaphalt is a virtual food grade product...but we advise against eating it!

What Is In Aquaphalt™?

Aquaphalt is comprised of traditional aggregate (stone) and a proprietary, plant-based binder and vegetable oil. When the binder reacts with plain water during application, it sets up to form a permanent repair.

Why Does Aquaphalt™ Come In Different Sizes?

Aquaphalt™ is produced in a 9.0 mm size, a 6.0 mm size and a 4 mm size. The different sizes indicate the maximum aggregate size of the stone in the product. The larger size (9 mm) is best for forming base layers in holes deeper than 4 inches. The smaller sizes (06 mm and 4 mm) are best for smooth surface layers and/or for filling smaller holes.

How Do You Install Aquaphalt™?

It is simple. First, clean any loose debris out of the damaged area. If there remains a bit of water left in the hole, do not worry, the new material will displace it and residual water will help with the reaction. Open the bucket and pour the Aquaphalt into the hole. If it is a particularly large or deep hole, compact the repair in layers of 2 inches deep until the area is full. Level the material, then pour plain water onto the entire surface of your Aquaphalt, covering your material. Lastly, compact the material well.

What Is The Optimum Amount Of Water To Be Added To Aquaphalt™ To Assure Peak Performance?

One gallon of water per bucket.

Does Aquaphalt™ Come In Bulk, Or Just Buckets?

Only BUCKETS. Because of Aquaphalt’s unique proprietary binder, it reacts with water to form a permanent repair, and therefore must be store in its sealed bucket until use. We are considering alternative packaging, so please talk to us about your packaging preferences.

What is the coverage rate of Aquaphalt?

One 50 pound bucket of Aquaphalt will cover approximately 5 square feet at 1 inch thick.

Is Aquaphalt™ Approved By Any State D.O.T.S?

Yes! Aquaphalt is approved by the DOTs in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico.
