Hargrove Sealcoating is proud to announce the introduction of a brand new, top of the line asphalt technology. Our newest piece of equipment is called a “Hotbox” and it is going to change the way we provide asphalt patching and pothole repair services to the greater Nashville area and Middle Tennessee.
Asphalt Hotbox Reclaimer
Let’s start out by formally introducing this high tech piece of equipment. The proper name for this machine is “Asphalt Hotbox Reclaimer”, but we like to simply refer to it as a hotbox. Now, you may be wondering what’s so great about this machine. An asphalt hotbox allows us to transport and maintain the temperature of all of our Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) so that we can continue to work despite the current outdoor temps.
Hot Mix Asphalt is heated and poured at temperatures between 300 and 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Hot Mix Asphalt is by far the best type of asphalt mixture for any patchwork and road repair that needs to be completed. It is the most commonly used type of asphalt on highways, interstates, and roads in the United States. That’s because of its flexibility, weather resistance, and water repelling abilities.
So, since it is the most common asphalt type found within the United States, it makes sense to complete any repairs with the same durable asphalt. This sounds like a no-brainer. Unfortunately, hot mix asphalt is a rapidly cooling product. Which means that any time the weather drops below 40 degrees, the hot mix asphalt can’t be used to complete repairs. Hot mix asphalt is the only type of mixture that can provide permanent repairs. This situation leads to the inconvenience of settling for a temporary cold patch until the weather warms back up and you can schedule another (more permanent) repair, which in turn increases your repair costs.
The Asphalt Hotbox Reclaimer allows the mixture to maintain it’s ideal temperature so that any damages can be repaired throughout the entire winter. Not to mention the machine allows us to reuse leftover mixture, rather than discarding it. Which means Hargrove Sealcoating is enabled to utilize more eco-friendly asphalt practices.
Versatility and Utility
After reading the formal introduction to the machine above, you can already see the benefit that this new technology brings to our business. We will be able to provide high quality, reliable service to the community all throughout the year! You won’t have to be concerned when an ice storm hits and your roads pay the consequences. When no one else can repair your road during the coldest months, we can. You can schedule an immediate repair with Hargrove Sealcoating and enjoy your pothole repair for years to come.
Imagine this scenario: It is the middle of December and a tripping hazard has formed along your business’ asphalt. You are expecting a large volume of customers today, but your budget only allows for a more permanent repair. At this point, you would normally only have about 2 options.
- You leave the hazard until the weather warms up and hope that no one trips.
- You pay for a temporary cold patch during the winter and move some funds around to purchase a permanent repair when the weather warms back up.
Thankfully, you no longer have to worry about these problems anymore!
This machine allows us to provide a wide variety of services all throughout the year, including pothole patching, utility cuts, asphalt maintenance, saw cut remove and replace, and more. You won’t want to leave any hazards waiting around for one of your customers to have an unfortunate run-in with. Instead, allow your business to continue operating at its optimal quality all year round by choosing permanent asphalt repairs through the winter months.
