Cutler Paving Recycles Existing Asphalt Pavements
Better Roads Staff | September 29, 2009
Cutler Paving, Inc. recycles existing asphalt pavements in a single pass, utilizing its own hot in-place recycling equipment that applies the virgin-wearing course over the recycled layer. The machine applies heat to soften the existing pavement, scarifies the softened pavement and applies a recycling agent to the scarified, reclaimed material to improve viscosity. It then places the recycled material as a leveling course before applying the new overlay simultaneously, in a single pass. This means no delay between the time the pavement is recycled and the time a riding surface is placed, resulting in a safer work zone for road users and contractor personnel.
