Anyone who has come across a pothole knows how annoying they can be. At the very worst, they can also be dangerous and that’s why it’s important to cover them up.
But how is pothole repair done? There are plenty of techniques for road maintenance but one, in particular, is extremely efficient and easy to undertake.
It’s called the American Road Patch and it consists of an adhesive backing that bonds to both asphalt and concrete.
When placed over a pothole, it almost immediately becomes a part of the road thus fixing the hole. This solution is so effective it only requires a few people to undertake and no roads need to be shut down.
