FROM OLD TYRES TO
Flexible. Resilient. Eco-friendly. Rubberized asphalt possesses these attributes and many more, including reduced maintenance requirements, greater skid resistance and improved performance.
After a rather slow rate of adoption among municipal and state governments, new technology combined with an increased focus on the environment and a greater understanding of the product are making rubberized asphalt the preferred paving product for the nation's roadways and interstates.
Rubberized asphalt is pavement material that consists of regular asphalt concrete mixed with crumb rubber, a finely ground rubber produced from whole scrap tires. Crumb rubber consists of recycled rubber that has been reduced in sizes less than 6.3mm. Rubberized asphalt is safer than traditional asphalt, exhibiting greater skid resistance and decreased splash and spray in wet conditions. The material also improves nighttime visibility and reduces traffic noise levels by upwards of 5 decibels. The flexibility of recycled rubber helps to delay the aging and oxidation of the asphalt, preventing it from becoming brittle and cracking.
Rubberized asphalt can be used wherever conventional asphalt concrete or bituminous surface treatments would be used. It can serve as a surface treatment, hot mix or as a crack sealant. It may also be used in new construction or to rehabilitate an existing pavement.
- Reduces Reflective Cracking in Asphalt Overlays
- Reduces Maintenance Costs
- Improves Resistance to Cracking in New Pavements
- Improves Resistance to Rutting in New Pavements
- Increases Pavement Life
- Improves Skid Resistance
- Decreases Noise Levels
- Beneficially Uses 500-2,000 scrap tires per lane mile
BE THE CHANGE
As the world's population increases and new cities being developed to cope with the growing population, the dependency of automobiles to commute is ever more greater today and in the very near future. Thus creating an immense amount of waste especially from rubber tyres that are being changed periodically during the life of a vehicle. However at Universal Pave, we have the solution of transforming these tyres into asphaltic replacement products through our upcycling methods increasing the durability of roads, reducing the maintenance lifecycle and ultimately saving the stakeholders substantial amount in their OPEX.
