Things to Consider
Hot mix asphalt is blended at temperatures between 270°F and 325°F. Depending on the environmental conditions and the distance from the hot mix plant to the job site, hot mix can lose between 5°F and 25°F in the first 30 minutes. The temperature of the mix on the base (pot hole or patch area) is the most important factor in determining the available time for compaction. Hot mix should be at a temperatures between 275°F and 300°F when placed on the patch area. Hot mix that is too cool will begin to set up and make it very difficult to work with or to obtain the required or specified compacted density.
We also offer a smaller version of this Box which will only have a 20" single door design and a 42 square foot capacity which holds 4200 LBS of hot mix. Please contact your sales person for details if your interested in this system.
