FUTTEC A. S. (FUTURE TECHNOLOGY)
The company was established in 2011, with the goal of developing a unique system for pothole repair. Technology, which is the fruit of a longtime research and gradual improvement, was created in collaboration with the Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
The technology is intended for the permanent repair of potholes and further asphalt surface faults on roads, bike paths and other asphalt surfaces.
This includes an asphalt mixture heating system using microwave technology. This technology ensures an in-depth heating of the area that is under repair without degrading the asphalt mixture. Through this process, we guarantee the high strength and durability of the repaired area.
The present unique technology is concealed in the heart of FT3, a single device, which we offer for sale to our customers.
Thanks to the FT3 device, road repairs may be carried out all year-round, even in the winter.
With our products we are focusing not only on the Czech market but also on foreign markets. We work incessantly on innovations and search continuously for possibilities for further enhancement.
During an extensive competition, FUTTEC a.s. (Co. Ltd.) emerged as one of the few companies in the Czech Republic as a successful applicant for the EU HORIZON 2020 SME Instrument. It has received the SEAL OF EXCELLENCE in Phase 2.
Through the competition, SMEs are provided with a systemic support to the innovative products and services. The instrument aims at enabling SMEs to accomplish their innovative ideas from the original thought through to creation, and up to introducing the product to the market when it is feasible.
Repairing a pothole? This is how the FT3 technology works:
The FT3 device is intended to repair potholes and other damages up to the size of 70 x 50 cm. Larger holes can be repaired in a few consecutive steps.
The FT3 device can be used all year-round, in summer and winter as well as at temperatures below 0°. Therefore, surface fault repairs may be ensured at all times and subsequent damage is prevented.
Asphalt surfaces are heated by microwave radiation.
The heating time depends on the temperature of the asphalt layer and the area of the drain defined by the penetration of the coating.
For more details, please read about the unique FUTTEC technology.
The asphalt layer is heated up to the required temperature, which allows for a homogenous binding to separate surfaces such as potholes.

WHOM IS FT3 DEVICE INTENDED FOR:
Companies executing road repairs
Mayors bothered by a bad state of the roadways and bike paths
Private road owners, owners of motor-racing circuits or airports
REASONS TO REPAIR POTHOLES THIS WAY:
Homogeneity of surfaces – special technology will ensure that the new material merges into the surrounding surface. Neither unevennesses dangerous for drivers are thus formed, nor technologically undesirable cracks, which could significantly reduce the longevity of the repair life cycle.
All year-round repairs – road repairs may be carried out over the whole year and even in winter period.
Non-dependence – we are not dependent on subcontractors, who could clash with the issue of seasonal character and seasonal shutdowns of hot pre-coated asphalt mixture supplies for permanent repairs.
Various types of asphalt roadways – repairs may be executed on asphalt roadways of various sizes and roads with steeper gradients (steep access roads to houses, streets and alike, roads, highways, local roads, bike paths, airports, racetracks or handling areas within storage spaces).
Various types of damages – this technology makes repairs of various types of damages possible – starting from minor cracks up to potholes of a size of 70 × 50 cm within a single working operation. Repairs may be performed both on old and more recent roadways.
Repairs are carried out quickly and permanently – a pothole repair is executed by a two-member crew in about one hour following the commencement of works.
Efficiency – while using this unique technology, lower financial demands for time and energy arise. In this case, more efficiency brings value.
Technical repair certificate – during the repair works, the machine generates a technical repair certificate. The latter contains information about the repair time, its place and duration, technical parameters such as material temperature, consumption and alike. The certificate represents, at the same time, the warranty of quality and quality guarantee for the completed repair works.
Online transparency – the machine enables the information included in the technical repair certificate to be shared via Internet, e.g. on road administrators‘ websites.
Environmental protection – ecology matters a lot to us. In the pothole surroundings we do not dispose unnecessarily of the material, which need not be carried away and liquidated. The material intended for the repairs is heated up just before its use, and, thus, heat losses do not occur. For the repair we use only the amount of mixture indispensable for the repair.
Unique know-how – unequalled technology, developed in the Czech Republic, which may be usable worldwide. Advanced technology representing a high-quality approach to the repairs of potholes, which have been annoying citizens across the whole Europe.
POTHOLES – A BURNING QUESTION THAT ANNOYS BOTH CITIZENS AND MAYORS
Poor road conditions are a problem that annoys both drivers and mayors. You deserve to drive on higher quality roads, roads which will be much safer, roads on which your car will not wear out.
We are proud of the fact that the road repair FUTTEC technology was developed in the Czech Republic with the contribution of important masterminds from the field.
Not only older roadways necessitate quality and permanent repairs, but also relatively new roadways require continuous care to prevent fast wear and tear.
Timely inspections and removing minor defects may prevent high costs of extensive repairs later, which over the course of time, in case of neglecting the first signs of degradation, become necessary.
The FUTTEC technology is not intended solely for pothole repairs on the roads, but it is also useable for bike paths, motor racing circuits, airports where even a small crack or pothole may have hazardous safety consequences. Citizens' safety is of crucial importance to us.
