This is a common debate that comes up when talking about Infrared use and the use of rejuvinator. Infrared heat does not dry out the asphalt surface in a way that it loses any significant amount of its additives. In fact by utilizing the Infrared Repair method, it requires the user to rake the heated asphalt which in turn mixes the entire layer heated so that the thin layer that was exposed becomes mixed in with the underside of that layer which has plenty of chemicals left to it. In essence you are giving the asphalt new life. Because of this virtually new material being drawn to the surface, you don’t necessarily need rejuvinator to add to it.

As we tell our customers and prospective customers, rejuvinator, in most cases (there will be the occasional need), is not needed but it is up to them if they feel more comfortable using it. Some people are just hardwired to feel a need for it and that’s fine too.
