BituChem, the manufacturer of AirPatch, says that the product formulation can be altered so local aggregate is chemically compatible, making the pothole patch more durable.


AirPatch is a sprayed application that provides an excellent break and pothole repair solution. It repairs potholes and other surface deformations by spraying the surface with aggregate. BituChem says that AirPatch is also a superb adhesion binder.

The highway emulsion is polymer modified - unmodified version available - and doesn’t require manual application, reducing the risk of injury if work is being carried out in a busy or dangerous environment. When used in collaboration with mobile patch repair systems it is ideal for both planned and emergency pothole repair on a carriageway, according to the manufacturer. All repair work is carried out by the operative from the truck’s cab using an adjustable boom that extends from the front of the vehicle. This greatly improves safety.

Compressed air removes any loose debris before a coat of AirPatch is applied to the repair area and finished with a layer of chippings. The AirPatch is evenly applied up to the road level and the edges are then tidied up using compressed air. Compaction is achieved by everyday use.    


BituChem also manufactures and supplies its NatraTex and NatraTex Colour asphalt surface courses to surfacing contractors throughout the UK. NatraTex and NatraTex Colour are supplied hot and laid conventionally like any blacktop. They use a clear binder with coloured or natural aggregate to achieve long lasting, aesthetically pleasing, maintenance-free pedestrian and highway surfaces.
