Cold Mix Applications

UPM® cold mix has the unique property of being workable under all temperatures and weather conditions. UPM® is manufactured in different grades which are suited to the climate conditions experienced during the various seasons of the year. The viscosity of the mix adapts to the average temperature of the local summer or winter. This guarantees the easy application and makes it possible to apply UPM® in hot summer conditions as well as in severe winter conditions.

Benefits

Because of its excellent adhesive properties, even potholes containing water can be repaired with UPM®, without having to remove the water – known as the throw-and-roll procedure.Long-term field performance studies in the United States (SHRP H-106 project) showed that UPM® repairs are permanent and outperform the life of the adjacent surfacing.

  • Remove loose pavement material. Patch only on a solid base layer
