Another Successful Rubberized Asphalt Project
Asphalt Plus, LLC conducted another rubberized asphalt project using the Dry Process. Same as the last successful trial project on I-88, we recorded the process to show just how the Dry Process of Rubberized Asphalt is as simple as it comes.
In the video, we demonstrate the beginning, middle and end of the process. You will see here in this short video that this is a simple and effective process with basic procedures.
First, we prepare engineered crumb rubber for blending. Once prepared, it is blended with asphalt. The rubberized asphalt now has an easy flow for application. Next, is filling paver with the rubberized asphalt which shows an incredibly smooth application, high quality and no issues. Compaction meets specs with no sticking issues and the finished product, as seen in the video below, is pristine.
Successful Trial Project Using Rubberized Asphalt
What the Rubber Helps With:
Modified asphalt binders can be a challenge to use in your plant and in the field. They require special delivery and storage, mixes are harder to produce and place, and you have to pay a healthy premium for the terminal-modified binders. Over the past two decades, extensive lab and field work has created a new binder modification option for asphalt producers. Dry process rubber modification of asphalt allows you to produce rubber-modified mixes that perform like polymer-modified mixes without the use of terminal blending.
