Pothole patching

Perma-Patch blends pressure-sensitive plastics, chemicals, modified asphalt, and aggregate in a patching material that can be used in temperatures from -10° to 100° F. It forms a water-tight seal with the pavement and resists shrinking. To install, crews take the material directly from the bag and apply it to the affected area (water and small debris does not need to be removed), then compact it. The site can be opened to traffic immediately. Perma-Patch, Booth 2035. www.permapatch.com.
