Cold Mix Asphalt is used to make quick, temporary fixes such as potholes and manholes in a larger asphalt project. It can be applied easily, and simply tamped down without needing any additional heat to activate. Cold Mix, due to the fact that it does not need to be kept at a high temperature, is also ideal for low temperature repairs such as winter application, until a more permanent, hot mix application can be organized. While not as strong or permanent as its hot mix counterpart, cold mix is nevertheless the perfect choice for any temporary placement or small scale asphalt repair.
