COLD PATCH RAPID RESONSE EMERGENCY REPAIRS - PATCH AND LAST
QPR is a high performance permanent cold patch. ‘Cold mix’ is a generic term used to describe a variety of asphalt based surface maintenance products. Most customers tend to think of cold mix as a material of low quality, used for temporary and unimportant jobs. Traditionally, cold mix was used as a replacement for hot asphalt, which generally becomes unavailable when outside temperatures drop below 55°F.
The inability to use hot asphalt to make repairs led to the development of a product that does not require heat to be manufactured. Obviously, as weather conditions deteriorate, rain, snow, ice, and other weather conditions develop, so the need for repair material increased. It is from this dilemma that cold mix was born. It is also from these situations that some cold mix materials die. Unable to perform under the rigours of harsh, difficult, and demanding conditions, resulting in rutting and shoving and the cold mix being stripped out of the patch, cold patching needed a better solution.
If reworking a patch more than twice, cheap cold mix becomes very expensive.
The inventors observed this phenomena in the USA, Europe and Australia, and decided that there needed to be a longer lasting solution of ‘patch and last’ with only one visit to a patch, which would reduce reworks and costly revisits, and save the customer up to 50% on costs. QPR was born.
Quite simply, QPR has nothing in common with traditional cold mix. Our combination of stone, asphalt cement, and anti-stripping agents provides our customers with a high performance product that performs a PERMANENT repair that adheres not only to asphalt, but concrete and steel as well.
This makes QPR the logical choice for utility cuts, pothole repair, bridge deckings, driveways, and general surface repair. QPR requires no mixing, tacking, or mechanical compaction. This eliminates not only additional material and equipment costs, but labour costs as well.

PolyCom Stabilising Aid - PolyCom is an innovative road stabilisation product that enables road makers to build high integrity pavements from almost any naturally occurring material. Just 2 kilograms of PolyCom transforms 100 tonnes of road material into a stronger, longer lasting pavement, resulting in economies of transport never experienced in the industry.
PolyCom treated roads last up to six times longer than untreated roads, resulting in significant financial savings due to reduced road maintenance, water usage, plant maintenance and carbon emissions. In 2014, Earthco Projects won a 2014 Banksia Awards and Premier's Sustainability Award for their work building sustainable roads with PolyCom Stabilising Aid.
DustChek Dust Control - DustChek reduces dust on mining and industrial roads where there is an ongoing watering program in place. Also used for dust control on stockpiles, rom pads and open areas, the application of DustChek enables water savings of up to 90% and improved traction, whilst reducing maintenance requirements and delivering substantial savings to haul fleet operations as a result.
QPR Pavement Repair - QPR is a ready-made bagged asphalt used for permanent repairs on potholes, utility cuts and damaged pavements. QPR contains a proprietary mix of ingredients designed to stay where it's put. QPR is available in 15kg bags and pails, 22kg bags and 1 tonne bags.
