A new solution to an ageing problem: road repairs

We as a nation need to become smarter, wiser and find new ways to maintain the road networks, faster, cheaper while not sacrificing the quality. The technology is: "infrared heat". Using the Infrared RoadMASTER (IRMA) allows the surface to be heated to the same temperature asphalt leaves the plant; at the same time the process rejuvenates the old asphalt material. The final outcome is that we have a fully bonded surface between the old and new asphalt; no weak joints.
