The Green Effect

Reclamite®1 asphalt rejuvenator is a cationic emulsion of the four maltene components of an asphalt binder. Maltenes are the volatile components that are reduced by contact with air and heat. Reclamite asphalt rejuvenator uses Maltene Replacement Technology (MRT) to replace the original maltene fractions that have been lost through oxidation, restoring the asphalt binder’s flexibility and durability. Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) demonstrates how Reclamite rejuvenator extends pavement life through Heat Island Reduction (HIR), significantly contributing to the sustainability of asphalt roadways and the communities they support.

With the rising cost of asphalt pavement resurfacing, it seems that our budgets are strained to the limit with no relief in sight. This is not necessarily so! This calculator will show you what can happen when you shift one mile of resurfacing to eight, ten, or more miles of preservation with Reclamite ® rejuvenator. When you increase your pavement’s life cycle, you reduce your annual cost to own your pavements. In turn as annual cost is reduced, the same budget amount goes further. Try it!
