Then the rake is use to scarify the asphalt inside of the square area. This recycles the old asphalt.

   

With the old asphalt recycled, a rejuvenator is added to replace oils that have oxidized out with age. New virgin asphalt is added to the repair to bring the repair up to grade. The patch is leveled with an asphalt lute and the area around the repair is swept clean.

In less then 20 minutes the repair is finished. With infrared thermal bond patching,
