How To Use U.S. Cold Patch®

Fast, permanent, easy to use.

Just sweep loose material from the pothole and fill the hole with U.S. Cold Patch. Then tamp or tire roll. This product sets through compaction, which makes for quick, permanent repairs that save time and money. Use it in all weather. Pave right over it. U.S. Cold Patch can be stored indefinitely, indoors or out. No mixing, no saw cutting, no tack coat, no curing time – no special tools or protective gear or training required.

For repairs deeper than two inches, apply and tamp U.S. Cold Patch in 1 to 2 inch layers. Add enough material so that tamping leaves a slight crown. If over time a patch settles below the road surface, clean the surface of the patch and add U.S. Cold Patch, and compact.

If a bag of U.S. Cold Patch feels hard or has frozen, simply drop it on the ground and roll it, and the material will break apart and be ready for use. U.S. Cold Patch can also be used as an overlay for areas that are beginning to crack or show signs of wear. Just apply a thin layer of material and compact, then sweep away any excess material from the repair area.
