DESCRIPTION & USES
CEMIX BITUPATCH is a ready to use, no mixing required cold mix Bitumen asphalt for the repair of potholes in asphalt roads, driveways and paths. It is simply and easily placed directly from the bag in to the hole.
Fill the hole with CEMIX BITUPATCH Make the middle slightly higher than the sides (this is called crowning) Depending on the size of the repair give yourself a 5 – 10mm crown This will counteract the subsidence caused by compacting.
For best results and performance, compact with a mechanical vibrating plate compactor or steel wheel roller Smaller areas can be compacted with any large heavy flat item such as large timber posts, compressed using a rubber mallet.
Thoroughly clean the area to be filled so as to remove all loose and deleterious materials and debris. If possible create a vertical edge to the hole for the CEMIX BITUPATCH to butt up against.
CEMIX BITUPATCH can be applied between 5°C – 30°C; however, for best performance, compaction and workability, use CEMIX BITUPATCH between air temperatures ranging from 21°C – 30°C. A vibratory steel wheel roller will always provide optimum results and performance; however, steel wheel or pneumatic rollers, compactor plates, wheel rolling, and hand tamping are also acceptable methods of compaction.
STORAGE & SHELF LIFE
