for Recycled Asphalt Pavement
Arkema has developed the product lines of asphalt rejuvenators to address these issues specifically. Revive® and Cecabase® RWI asphalt rejuvenators facilitate significantly increased RAP usage while maintaining mix flexibility and controlling stiffness. They work in two separate ways:
- They have high solvency for the old, aged, and oxidized asphalt. This means a very high percentage of the RAP binder will be quickly accessed and brought into the binder/mastic continuum.
- They reduce the complex shear modulus of the resulting RAP-virgin asphalt binder mixture. This combination reduces the risk of undesired performance and enables the profitable use of more recycled/reclaimed asphalt pavement.
Adding 20% RAP to a 15% RAP mix will allow you to reduce your virgin binder demand by almost 40%. With Arkema’s Revive® and Cecabase® RWI asphalt rejuvenators, these results can be effectively achieved without compromising the quality and long-term durability of the mterm durability of the mix.
- Saves money by incorporating more RAP, reducing the amount of virgin binder and lowering aggregate use in the mix
- Improves low temperature properties of the mix
- Alternative that is bio-renewable
