  • Cold Patch

    With so many options out there, what are you guys using as a winter pot hole patch? We are using either QPR from Lowes or UPM, whichever we can get easier. We sometimes buy UPM in bulk. I just saw several guys that the show with mix, they all look good.

    I like the aquapatch. It’s pricey and really hard to get but it works and looks good when done

      We've never used Aquapatch, but I hear its great for sealing where water is the catalyst and it sets quick. We too use UPM and buy in bulk.

        Yes once you put water on it and tamp it sets up good. Haven’t used enough to test longevity but I’m sure it’s on the same level as other cold patch material

          The thing thats always stood out to me with Aquapatch, i that when you are sealing and find a hole you missed, but want to fill easily so you can continue sealing. Regular cold mixes can stay too soft, but where Aquapatch seems to have a chemical set, makes it interesting. I might have to try some.

            My biggest issue if finding mix that wont come apart in weather. The cheaper mixes tend to be only temporary.

              Believe it or not I’ve also had really good luck with the latexite cold patch from Home Depot. 3 years later it’s still holding really good

                Our home depots carry some off brand, but its a premium version not a cut back. Ill have to look at the brand.

                    Our asphalt plant makes a bunch at the end of the season though we rarely get involved in much winter patching.. never really get many calls for it

                      Does your plant just make the cutback material, or the premium UPM type stuff?

                        Knowing the provider here I'd say its just simple cut back product sold at the double the price of standard hot mix.. Other than bagged product at homocheapo or lowes its the only option..they are the only producer in our half of the state..no choices.

                          Thats what our plant used to do until they got in with UPM. UPM is still pricey at $125 per ton, but unlike cut back you can leave a ton in the truck for a while and fill potholes. Generally pays for itself.

                            I saw a company at the show called HIE- WAY offering a decent price on cold patch by the bag or ton . They even showed a video of a road that was paved with their cold patch . Thoughts ? Has anyone used them?

                              The cheap jet coat stuff you can get at rural king works great for us. It tamps really well
