LT40 Hotmix is commonly referred to as “Hot Mix in a Bag”. The LT40 allows SMME`s the ability to carry out road repairs and maintenance utilising conventional Hot Mix Asphalt in areas where Asphalt plants are not accessible. LT40 Asphalt incorporates an additive made from 100% natural and renewable resources and gives contractors the ease of use of quality continuously graded, medium grade asphalt in a bag, offering results comparable to Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA). This
reduces waste, time lost waiting in queues at HMA plants, product loss from bad weather and higher productivity.
The product is perfect for edge breaks, re-instatement of trenches, patching and pothole repairs. Application is carried out in the same manner as for a traditional HMA repair.
The product is supplied in 25 kg bags, has a shelf life of 12 months and is heated up to approximately 40 to 60 degrees Celsius in a custom built oven that can be supplied with a
custom built trailer or separately. Once the product has reached the required temperature, it is shovelled onto a wheelbarrow and transferred to the repair site, placed in the prepared area and compacted.
For more information please contact us.
The repair area is to be inspected and any cracked or damaged asphalt surrounding the repair
area is to be incorporated. The area is to be squared off and all loose material removed, ensuring
a 90 degree seat between the walls and floor of the repair. The entire area is then coated
with tack (diluted emulsion). LT40 is applied to the area in layers no thicker than 40 mm and
compacted with a pedestrian roller, rammer or hand stamper. Compaction tools can be wetted
with water to prevent material from sticking to the surface.
