Viafix is a cold material that remains workable even in very low temperatures but hardens like traditional hot asphalt when water is added. Viafix uses a patented reactive binder technology which, on contact with water or moisture, not only cures into a highly durable material but also binds itself to wet substrates including concrete and iron work.
Winter conditions are not conducive to traditional hot asphalt repairs, which bring their own set of logistical problems, even in good weather. Issues arise from having big ‘kit’ and traffic management, trained crews and access to hot material, all of which are not easy to manage efficiently and safely.
The solution is VIAFIX, a cold repair material and a permanent first time solution.
The nature of the binder system is such that Viafix remains pliable well below freezing and can easily be placed into flooded potholes, compacted by traffic or graded out into a level skid-resistant surface.
Viafix will massively reduce cost and congestion due to defects.
The plant was completed in 2013 and after initial trials went into production later the same year.
