Commonly Asked Questions

  1. How long does it last? When applied as recommended, Pothole Bind™ will outlast the asphalt around it.
  2. How much will I need? See the application chart.
  3. How long does it take to dry? Well, that all depends. It’s all about the water evaporating. A pothole that is filled in 100 degree sunny weather will dry quicker than a pothole filled in 40 degrees and a shaded area.
  4. What should the consistency of Pothole Bind™ be after mixed with water? The consistency of the mixture is similar to a concrete slurry.
  5. Is it environmentally safe? Yes. There are no VOCs or other harmful materials.
  6. Which pigment should I get?
    • Are you repairing asphalt? Then black.
    • Are you repairing concrete? Then grey.
    • If you are repairing faded asphalt, you may want to go with grey.
  7. Do I need to clean out the pothole before filling it? Clean out any trash and large debris that may be in the hole.
  8. Does the pothole need an edge to bind to? Defined walls on the sides of the pothole is best.
  9. Can I fill a pothole when it is raining or when the ground is wet? A drizzle or slightly wet ground will not be a problem. We do not recommend applying the product in heavy rainfall or if there is a puddle in the hole. The water needs to evaporate to harden properly. In heavy rain or with a puddle, there is just too much water for a proper repair.
  10. Can I fill a pothole when it is cold outside? Pothole Bind will not work properly when applied in freezing temperatures. This is because the water that mixes with it cannot freeze. We suggest using warm/hot water when it is colder out.
  11. Can I fill a pothole when it is hot outside? Best time to do it. The water evaporates quicker.
  12. What tools will I need to fill a pothole with Pothole Bind™? Pothole Bind does not require heavy machinery.
    • Bag of Pothole Bind™
    • Water
    • Mixing Tools (shovel, hoe, etc).
    • Wheelbarrow or Tub
    • Depending on the project you may want a tool to smooth the surface with a concrete placer, trowel, etc.
  13. How does it ship? Thirty-pound bags ship by USPS Priority Mail. Pallets ship with LTL and Truckloads.
  14. How long will it take to arrive? USPS Priority Mail takes 2-3 days once shipped. With pallet orders, that depends on where the product is shipped to (usually a few days once shipped).
  15. How does the product need to be stored? Needs to be stored in a dry area.
