CASE STUDY 1: ARP Remains Strong Through Winter Conditions!
Location: Duluth Airport Authority Taxiway
Problem: Deterioration of filled potholes
Solution: American Road Patch™
Duluth Airport Authority is a hub for F16 fighter planes. The airport was continuously filling and refilling potholes due to consistent traffic loading and deterioration. In Fall 2019 the airport authority decided to try American Road Patch. The old fill was removed and replaced with
American Road Patch. To ensure that none of the aggregate surfaced, the patch was tamped to embed the waterproofing membrane into the pavement. After multiple snowfalls and plowing, American Road Patch remains strong!
CASE STUDY 2:
The City of Los Angeles wanted us to help them solve the recurring street repair problems they have been having in several locations from wear and tear from vehicles, buses and continuous water damage. The pics below are before and then after with American Road Patch. Our product solved the problem and is working perfectly.
- Extends the life of the repair, in most cases permanently
- Tensile strength of 350 PSI
- Flexible in cold temperatures
- Self-healing properties
- Allows crews to catch up on pothole repairs since most repairs will be permanent

CASE STUDY 5: Bridge Traction: New Zealand
“Just prior to Christmas we were asked if ARP would be suitable for a wooden bridge repair over a bridge on the Waimakariri River in Selwyn District just North of Christchurch.
The bridge is quite old and needed strengthening with metal plates in certain areas of the bridge. The plates were installed but were very slippery to drive over and that region of New Zealand contains a large number of dairy farms where milk tankers collect milk and since dairy is New Zealand’s biggest export its pretty important to ensure the safety of those tankers along with the string of tourist campervans that visit the region given its beauty.
The ARP was laid over all the metal plates to ensure traction and braking on the plates was safe and this is the result. I am very pleased with these results.” – — Mark de Jong, Owner of Asphalt in a Bag, New Zealand
