Heatwurx, Inc. (OTCQB: HUWX), an eco-friendly asphalt preservation and repair equipment company, announced today that it has been granted a new patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office: U.S. Patent No. 8,556,536, Asphalt Repair System and Method.

The patent covers certain unique aspects of the Heatwurx equipment. Additional patents are pending that capture further inventive aspects of the Heatwurx equipment, products, technology and methods.

"This new patent strengthens our patent portfolio and is a key element in our overall intellectual property program,” said Stephen Garland, Heatwurx CEO and President. "We believe a strong IP strategy is essential for bringing to market the most innovative solutions for preserving and rehabilitating distressed asphalt surfaces. Federal, state, and local governmental agencies need solutions that are more cost-effective and efficient to address the growing problems created by a deteriorating transportation infrastructure. We believe the Heatwurx solution meets those needs and provides a superior alternative to how these problems have been addressed in the past.”
