A chemically Engineered Crumb Rubber product called Elastiko ECR is fed into your plant during mix production, just like a fine aggregate. The heated binder reacts with the ECR during mixing, storage and transport. The delivered mix lays and performs like a polymer-modified pavement, but at a fraction of the cost.
ECR reduces the cost of a two grade bump: by $2-$4 per mix ton. It makes your plant run faster compared to polymer modified mixes: lower mix viscosities permit 10-15% faster plant throughput. Also, it generates less waste: mixes leave the truck with almost no residue in the bed, reducing truck cleanout waste.
