Asphalt Pothole Repair Made Easy
Pothole Repair is an easy process with HD-Asphalt. Quick Instillation Directions: Clean out the hole. Remove loose stones and debris from the hole. HD Asphalt will adhere to clean asphalt. Although HD Asphalt displaces water and maintains its tenacity to bond to old asphalt in wet conditions, it is important to remove excess water, especially in winter conditions. Excess water left in the hole may result in premature failure of the repair because of ice build up underneath the surface. Fill HD-Asphalt into damaged surface and tamp down to obtain a hard impact resistant repair.
REMEMBER: The better the compaction, the better the result. Install and compact HD Asphalt. Shovel or pour HD Asphalt Pothole Repair in sufficient quantity to fill the hole in 2” (5cm) lifts. Compact the material before adding additional material. Over-fill the hole to create 1/2” (1cm) crown to allow traffic to further compact the hole in some soil conditions.

Some Methods to Compact HD Asphalt Pothole Repair
Throw and Go
Let the traffic compact the repair. This is the least expensive installation method. However, highspeed traffic may cause excessive raveling and may pull the product out of the repair area. Stop and Go traffic and the severe turning of wheels may also hamper compaction and result in an unsatisfactory repair.
This is a quick and easy method with very low equipment cost. The effectiveness of the repair is dependent on the strength and motivation of the tamp person.
Plate Compactor/Jumping Jack
This is also a quick and easy repair method with somewhat higher equipment costs than Hand Tamp compaction. However, with mechanical compaction and minimal operator effort, a better repair is assured.
In the absence of either a hand or mechanical tamper, a tire of the repair crew’s truck may be driven slowly and carefully over the repair a few times to achieve a satisfactory repair. This method is particularly effective for small potholes and rebuilding the edges of paved shoulders. A truck tire repair is cost effective as no additional equipment or manpower is required.
Ride on or Walk Behind Compactor:
This method is the most expensive from an equipment perspective but produces the most effective repair. A ride on or walk behind compactor is highly recommended for large road repairs, utility cuts and water main break repairs.
