THE JETPATCHER TECHNOLOGY
This Jetpatcher system has a proven track record and has been used by Local Government, National Highway Authorities and contractors for over 40 years in more than fifteen countries around the world.
Jetpatcher uses a simple four-stage process to fix a road failure such as potholes, edge breaks, depressions and/or crocodile cracks. All types road failures are fixed using the same specific formulated bitumen emulsion and asphalt aggregate mix described below.
4 MAIN PROCESSES
Using the high-volume blower through the delivery hose, the Jetpatcher easily blows all loose debris from the road failure, cleaning it and preparing the road failure for an effective long-lasting repair.
The Jetpatcher delivery hose coats the road failure base and surrounding area with a specific formulated bitumen emulsion. It seals the prepared base and prevents further damage from occurring.
Road stone aggregate is introduced into the road failure and coated with bitumen emulsion at the point of exiting the delivery hose, blown into the road failure at high volume, effectively compacting from bottom up.
Lastly the road failure is sealed with the specific formulated bitumen emulsion from the delivery hose and a light layer of dry crusher dust aggregate is applied to the repaired area, preventing the newly fixed area from adhering to car tires prior to the emulsion fully curing.
A pothole is a type of failure in an asphalt pavement, caused by the presence of water in the underlying soil structure and the presence of traffic passing over the affected area.
Edge breaks generally occur when the road shoulder is worn, there is inadequate strength of the pavement at the edge if the roadway or water enters the pavement through the shoulders.
Rutting or crocodile cracking is characterized by interconnecting or interlaced cracking in the asphalt layer resembling the hide of a crocodile. Repair as soon as possible, as advanced cases can be very costly to repair and can lead to formation of potholes or premature pavement failure.
Depressions are localized pavement surface areas with slightly lower elevations than the surrounding pavement. Depressions are very noticeable after rain when they fill with water.
Crack sealing (crack–filling) is to prevent moisture finding its way into a road pavement. It is also used to seal cracks prior to an asphalt overlay in order to prevent reflective cracking..
Road rejuvenation with PBRF is a polymerized bitumen rejuvenator with mastic filling that extends the life of asphalt and chip seal surfaces by preventing damaging moisture and ultraviolet rays from penetrating the surface. Video link
