About U.S. Cold Patch

U.S. Cold Patch is a cold asphalt repair material that repairs potholes and cracks on roads, bridges, parking lots, driveways and other asphalt and concrete surfaces. This product is unique. It is made from RAP—recycled asphalt pavement — which has been treated so that the hardened asphalt will re-bond when compacted.

U.S. Cold Patch is made without light distillate petroleum or biodiesel solvents found in other bagged cold asphalt products, called “cutback” asphalt. Cutback asphalt products cure through evaporation. U.S. Cold Patch cures through compaction.
