Crafco Modifies Cold Patch
Crafco Inc., an Ergon company, Chandler, Arizona, offers cold-mix asphalt producers another design option. They can now make Crafco’s eco-friendly, high performance cold patch using the new HP ER Enhancer mix design and quality assurance provided by Crafco’s team of lab and field technicians. The new HP ER Enhancer is designed to provide producers with a simple, safe and cost-effective asphalt modifier to produce Crafco’s signature HP ER Asphalt Cold Patch™ in any hot-mix plant or pugmill.
The company states: “An organic, no VOC base viscosity modifier with a proprietary blend of rejuvenating and adhesion-promoting additives, HP ER Enhancer is designed to blend with paving grade asphalt to produce Crafco’s HP ER Binder for high-performance cold patch production. Packaged in premeasured totes for easy shipping and storage, HP ER Enhancer is safe to blend and produce in all types of hot-mix plants and pugmills with a higher flash point than conventional cutback blends. HP Enhancer requires lower binder content than traditional cold mix binders, which equates to a higher yield in tonnage.”
Tom Kelly, vice president of national sales & marketing, said: “Our new HP ER Enhancer program provides any producer with simple asphalt blending capabilities, the ability to produce the highest quality asphalt cold patch anywhere in the world, trouble-free, in their plant.”
With the HP ER Enhancer Program, Crafco and its materials development team are providing the signature formula, analysis and expert instruction to bulk produce an asphalt repair material that is cost-effective, safe and eco-friendly while offering superior performance, according to the manufacturer.
“We are committed to delivering an innovative product that will transform how producers meet the needs of their customers,” Kelly said. “We cannot wait to connect with producers looking to partner with Crafco’s winning team.”
