Cold In-Place Recycling Process Description1. Inject asphalt emulsion stabilizing agent while milling the existing asphalt.2. Conveyor recycled material into a modified asphalt paver.3. Lay the recycled material down at the appropriate cross-slope and elevation.4. Pave over the recycled base course with conventional asphalt.
Cold In-Place Recycling BenefitsMuch less $ than remove/replace. Removes entire cracking network.Minimizes disruption to public. Adds significant structural integrity.Reuses existing materials. Saves taxpayer dollars.
Full Depth Reclamation Process Description 1. Reclaim the asphalt and the existing base material and add appropriate stabilizing agent. 2. Grade & shape stabilized base material to the proper grades and elevations. 3. Compact the reclaimed base material to achieve density. 4. Prime and pave the finished base with asphalt.
Full Depth Reclamation BenefitsHalf the cost of remove & replace. Removes entire cracking network.Simplifies road widening projects. Adds significant structural integrity.Reuses existing materials. Saves taxpayer dollars.
