USING WATER TO REJUVENATE TEXTURE ON AUSTRALIAN ROADS

There is a unique, environmentally sensitive solution to deal with problems associated with flushing, that -contrary to traditional methods -removes material rather than adds it to the surface. The Frimokar (tm) process is chemical free and combines variable high water pressure with a high velocity vacuum suction to remove excess bitumen from flushed seals, and clean open graded asphalt. With the cost comparable to sealing, it is a highly effective 'tool' that now can be used as part of the Maintenance Engineers toolbox.
