Rapfix® recycling technology
Rapfix® recycling technology is a premium quality, proprietary additive designed to rejuvenate and restore the properties of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) binder and enhance the performance of asphalt.
The environmental and economic advantages of using RAP in asphalt materials are well known and widely publicised. RAP is now an important part of everyday asphalt production and as its use has become more widespread, the amount of RAP used in materials has naturally increased. If not carefully managed, higher percentages of RAP could result in inhomogeneous materials, laying/compaction difficulties and impaired asphalt performance. Higher percentages of RAP also demand increased mixing times and the use of softer grades of bitumen to compensate for the hard/aged RAP binder.
