How Silkot works

SILKOT® machine for asphalt roadway maintenance. The machine repairs potholes and other defects of asphalt roadways. The main idea is to use the milled-off recycled roadway surface material. The recycled material and the roadway surface to be repaired have approximately the asphalt of the same age with a similar granulation curve. Our patent is based on warming-up of recycled material to 150 -160°C without burning old asphalt.
As the machine only uses LPG, electricity and recycled material, the costs are very low and the repair is fast. The machine, operated by trained three-member staff, is capable to repair 90-100 sqm of roadway per shift. The repaired spot outlasts at least 3 years including cold winter periods. The machine can also work in winter. The cost is approximately CZK 250 per sqm with 10 % of profit. Cheap recycled material is used. The machine is fully self-reliant. The aforementioned advantages make the machine the best, most suitable equipment for asphalt roadway maintenance. This fact was proven by IBF Gold medal of the Brno Trade Fair in 2009.

It has to be noted that the Silkot machine is a Czech-made product and the Siltek s.r.o. company, the sole seller, is the worldwide patentee of the technology used in this unique machine. There is much call for Silkot machines shown from abroad.
