Magill says that while there is a perception that pothole patches are temporary, “a good, high-performance cold patch put in the right way can be a permanent repair.”
Making sure a pothole patch stays put can be easy as blasting a spray can.
Tom Donnelly, Midwest regional sales manager of Transpo, says his company’s Bondade spray promotes adhesion.
“You just sweep out the hole, spray the material and patch the hole,” Donnelly says.
Budget-strapped agencies and municipal public works departments are using the patching aid to increase the effectiveness of potholes that are patched with non-premium patch mixes, he says. “It could still enhance a premium patch mix, “Donnelly notes, “but for a community that might not have big budgets and that has to buy inexpensive patch materials, this will help the material stay put.”
