New company smooths potholes

Rosyth-based Nu-Phalt Scotland uses innovative infrared technology that offers a much faster, environmentally-friendly, safer, cheaper and longer lasting way to repair potholes than conventional methods.

In fact, the great news is that the firm has the technology to repair the average pothole in 20 minutes.

Gary Gibson, the Managing Director of Nu-Phalt Scotland, said, “Our Nu-Phalt In-Situ Asphalt Recycling System is a new, easy way to repair potholes in a fast, cost effective and environmentally sensitive manner.

“The innovative process recycles the existing road surface material in-situ and produces a heat-sealed repair that re-establishes the original integrity of the treated surface to create a thermo-bond between the repair area and the existing road surface. It creates a near seamless joint and extends its performance life to give a longer lasting repair.”

The system has been designed to be fully self-contained within a single vehicle. The full recycling operation is completed by a two-man team, eliminating the requirement for multiple operative attendance on small repair areas.

Equally effective on both urban roads and rural locations, the single vehicle system is mobile, flexible and able to access repair areas quickly. Meanwhile, the compact recycling system avoids unnecessarily complex phasing and reduces traffic disruption by minimising both the closure area and closure period.

Good news for all cyclists then.
