SOLUTIONS WITH REARM
How it Works
San Angelo TXDOT
The asphalt industry is moving toward a smarter future. Recycled asphalt pavement, or RAP, has been a cornerstone of the North American asphalt industry for decades. However, high RAP mixes resulted in premature cracking. Today, by combining balanced mix design, lab performance testing and the latest technologies, we can revisit the use of this vital resource in many markets of North America.
REARM HR™ combines two products to achieve the desired HIGH RAP percentage mix design. The first product is a highly engineered bio-oil to modify the virgin binder of the RAP mix. The second product is a treated para-aramid polymer fiber that reinforces the combined virgin and RAP binder to improve the rutting and cracking performance. The key to these performance improvements relies on the unique strengths of each product.

Stiff mix conditioned with high tech bio-oil use
Cracking mitigation gained through para-aramid use
EASE OF ADOPTION
Easy and clean for plant implementation (includes dailies and optional PE Cert)
Easy and improved compactability with site install
Longer life expectation and delayed maintenance costs
Reduces costs considerably
