EZ STREET® is a polymer-modified cold asphalt guaranteed to permanently repair potholes, utility cuts, overlays, and edge repairs in asphalt or concrete. EZ STREET® cold asphalt is currently manufactured by King Asphalt and sold in bulk as well as 35 and 50 pound bags. EZ STREET® cold asphalt works in water, most weather conditions, and requires no mixing or tack.
Why EZ STREET®?
When properly installed, EZ STREET® cold asphalt can be used as a permanent trench patch. As with any asphalt, it is important that the base material is stable prior to installation. Once base material in the utility cut is ready, EZ STREET® should be installed in 2” lifts and compacted with a steel wheel roller or plate compactor. EZ STREET® can be expected to compact up to 40% before proper density is achieved. The final lift should be approximately 1” higher than the desired finished surface prior to compaction. This will insure that enough EZ STREET® cold asphalt will be forced into the trench and proper density be achieved.
Water Valve, Catch Basin, Manhole Surrounds…
EZ STREET® cold asphalt can also be used as a permanent asphalt material around water valves, catch basin grates and manhole covers. Lids and rings can cause significant compaction difficulties. It is often necessary to install and compact 2” at a time for best results.
Possibly the easiest and most popular use of EZ STREET® cold asphalt is as a permanent pothole repair. The first step is to sweep the pothole clean of debris. For most potholes, the next step is simply to pour EZ STREET® into the pothole. Leave the material in a small crown to accommodate for the third step, compaction. The deeper the pothole, the higher the crown will need to be. Finally, compact the material with a hand tamp or the backside of a shovel or wheel roll with a vehicle.
