SMP High Performance Cold Mix
Cold weather won't stop Seneca Petroleum Company's SMP High Performance Cold Mix, which will remain workable for use in sub-freezing temperatures. For use with potholes 3 inches or less in depth, SMP requires a clean pad of hot mix asphalt or concrete. No primer coat is needed and SMP will perform well even in wet weather conditions. Hand tamper, wheel rolling with a vehicle, vibratory compactor, or roller are all acceptable compaction processes to use with SMP. Repairs are stable enough to open to traffic immediately. SMP can be overlaid with hot mix asphalt without pushing, rutting, or bleed-through.
