How do I apply EZ Street cold asphalt to a pothole filled with water?

How do I apply EZ Street cold asphalt to a pothole filled with water?

Just throw EZ Street cold asphalt directly into the water filled hole. EZ Street cold asphalt will displace the water. Then, compact it with a shovel or car tire. Leave a slight crown on the patch because it will compact a little more as traffic goes over it.

What’s so special about the EZ Street bag?

The EZ Street bag is made of durable poly-vinyl that helps prevent breakage – a first in the industry. EZ Street cold asphalt lasts for at least a year in the bag.

How long does EZ Street cold asphalt stay workable in a stockpile?

EZ Street cold asphalt is guaranteed to stay workable in a stockpile for at least 6 months in a 50-ton pile stacked 2 meters high. But we’ve had smaller stockpiles last over a year outside. If you leave the stockpile undisturbed for a long period of time, a protective crust may form over the pile. This is a built-in mechanism to prevent premature hardening of your stockpile. If this happens, simply have your loader “fluff up” the material prior to loading the truck. This will rejuvenate the EZ Street cold asphalt.

How long after applying EZ Street cold asphalt does traffic have to be diverted?

EZ Street cold asphalt is ready for traffic the instant you throw it in the hole. In fact, many EZ Street users keep bags in their trucks so when they come across a pothole they can just throw it in the hole and let traffic compact it.

Where can I purchase EZ Street cold asphalt?

EZ Street is available in select Canadian markets. View our Locations page for more information. EZ Street Canada is currently recruiting new distributors.

Does EZ Street get harder to work with as the temperature gets colder?

All EZ Street mixes are custom designed for a region’s broader climatic conditions. So, if your geographic region is experiencing its normal winter temperatures, then EZ Street cold asphalt should be designed to work relatively easy in that environment. Generally though, the colder it gets, the stiffer the material becomes to work with.
