What is needed to repair possible damage to the asphalt, and why is it important to prevent deterioration?

Thousands of vehicles drive on our country’s roads every day, and this leads to a deterioration of the asphalt and the consequent need to repair it. And how can an asphalt repair be carried out efficiently, those responsible for these roads ask themselves. At T2S Ibérica we offer a wide range of products to repair any type of damage that may occur.

Before going into detail with T2S asphalt repair products, we would like to point out why asphalt maintenance is important. Asphalt maintenance or conservation is considered to be all those constant or periodic works that are carried out to avoid its deterioration or preventive destruction.

The correct maintenance of asphalt can extend its useful life by 20 to 30 years.

However, carrying out this type of work is not an easy task. One must ask oneself how to carry out asphalt repairs quickly and with minimum disruption to normal traffic.

A road in poor condition hampers mobility, increases vehicle fuel consumption by up to 34%, which translates into higher carbon dioxide emissions. It also reduces the service life of vehicles, as they suffer more wear and tear.

What types of asphalt repairs are there?

There are three types of asphalt repairs, depending on their characteristics and frequency.

The types are listed below:

  • Routine maintenance operations. These are interventions that are recurrent throughout the year. Repair of potholes, profiling of roads, etc.

  • Periodic maintenance operations. Interventions that can be programmed in advance. They are programmed according to the weather or traffic volume. Examples of this type of work are asphalt sealing or the repair of river defences.

  • Restoration operations. The purpose of these operations is to return the deteriorated work to its initial state and are asphalt surface treatments or re-asphalting.

At T2S Ibérica, we can offer you all the materials you need to carry out any of these operations.
