Eliminate joint failures
The weakest part of an asphalt road is found in the longitudinal joint. On the edge of the mat it is difficult to get a high density and is typically where you see premature cracks.
How it works
The Joint Heater is an infrared propane-butane gas burner. Mounted just in front of the screed on the asphalt paver and connected to an appropriate gas source, the Joint Heater will effectively preheat the edge of the previously laid cold lane just prior to placing the new hot lane next to it.
