Synthetic / Cold Asphalt Repair

Why Synthetic Asphalt?

1. Ready for traffic within 2 hours.

2. Cold patch has a very slow hardening time. Synthetic asphalt has a rapid hardening time and is ready for traffic in two hours or less versus cold patch driveway asphalt that is not accessible in that time frame. The process for cold asphalt being ready takes much longer simply because it contains oils that must work itself out and will not adhere to sealcoating properly at time of installation.
