What Customers Say
Construction Services Manager Jay Perez On How He Found Out About RoadRescue®
“When I first came onboard I realized we had several high AADT intersections but only one that wasn’t giving us trouble. […] After asking around, I realized the crew had used a different patch. Frankly it’s [RoadRescue] been our go-to ever since. It stays put and makes our job easier. I like that.”Jay PerezConstruction Services Manager, TAP

How Native RoadRescue® Is Different
Most hot or cold mix asphalt is a manufactured combination of distilled crude oil and rock. Basically it’s just gravel covered in an oily glue. Our asphalt on the other hand? Well it took nature over 150 million years to make it.
Since the Cretaceous period, pressure has been causing viscous bitumen to impregnate the Anacacho limestone deposit we mine in South Texas. That means the glue that binds our natural asphalt together has slowly seeped deep inside the rocks. And that matters if you want a durable, heavy-duty pothole patch.
The Problems With Manufactured Asphalt
With manufactured asphalts, only the surface of the rocks are covered with a binding glue. That’s why most asphalts are either difficult to use or wear out quickly when the weather turns bad. That’s also why most asphalt dries out rapidly and requires special equipment.
In contrast, a binding glue permeates the rocks in our asphalt. That’s why all it takes is compaction and our bituminous limestone rocks fuse together into a dense and durable surface. In fact, the more pressure, the more tightly bonded our self-priming asphalt gets.
Fickle Mix Design
Easily contaminated materials and poorly graded aggregate hurts durability
Uses Chemical Bonding Agents
Toxic and hazardous. Dries out fast if not applied rapidly.
Difficult To Use
Requires special equipment and training. Creates a tarry mess.
Shrinks as it cures. Unstable at different temperatures so it ruts and migrates.
A Legacy Of Quality
Why Contractors Choose RoadRescue®
