Pothole callouts reach three year high

In 2018, the RAC reported that drivers breaking down after hitting a pothole had reached a three year high. With claims of 31,000 potholes across 12,000 miles of Britain’s roads, awaiting repair and local authorities paying out £3.2 million in compensation claims in one year alone, a permanent solution to the pothole crisis has never been needed more.

Tough Patch® Rapid repair material has been rigorously and thoroughly tested and is proven to provide a first time permanent repair, eliminating costly repeat visits to the same site, helping to alleviate the frustration of many drivers who have been victim to dangerous potholes.

Quick and easy to apply, Tough Patch® Rapid can be used to repair defects in pavements, driveways, car parks and on high speed roads – it even provides a permanent repair in wheel turning locations such as junctions, traffic lights and roundabouts.

Ready to use straight from the bag or bucket, Tough Patch® Rapid requires no special preparation and can be trafficked immediately, meaning costly traffic management can be removed swiftly, allowing drivers to continue on their journey uninterrupted and helping to increase productivity as contractors can move on to their next repair quickly.

What’s more, Tough Patch® Rapid eliminates many of the risks associated with hot asphalt repairs, such as extremely hot temperatures and dangerous fumes, providing contractors with a much safer working environment.
