Annual road maintenance costs for municipalities, cities, and private industries have increased dramatically over time. In many municipalities, a large portion of their budgets are allocated to road maintenance and reconstruction efforts.
Unfortunately, complaints and demands from road users have risen, alongside the costs. Many roads were not designed to handle current traffic loads, which now includes large machinery and heavy vehicular usage. Because of this, road deterioration is a common problem. The costs associated with repairing and rebuilding road surfaces with new aggregates, or new and recycled asphalt products, present a budget dilemma for many of our communities.
Benefits of Roadtek Road Stabilization Products
For those in the market for road base stabilization treatment, Roadtek soil stabilization products can be used with existing road materials and aggregates to resolve problem areas and increase the road’s strength and moisture resistance.
Suitable materials include:
Reclaimed or Recycled Oiled and Aged Surfaces
Recycled Asphalt Products (RAP) such as Asphalt Millings
Existing Aggregates and Native Soils
Ditch Pull Materials
Standard Road Construction Aggregates
Roadtek application at standard (3.5 to 4.5 inch) as well as deep (8 to 10 inch) stabilization depths can significantly improve the wet compressive strength of the road surface, from a low of 0 for untreated aggregate up to 4000 PSI when treated with Roadtek.
Roadtek road stabilization products will help to reduce annual maintenance costs and reduce dust on gravel roads
Less maintenance equals less grading, saving both time and money
This soil stabilization product is good for gravel and RAP surfaces; it assists with eliminating potholes, ruts, dust, and wash boarding
Roadtek makes it easier to reuse and recycle existing materials, which means reduced maintenance costs and increased environmental sustainability
With Roadtek, surfaces can be top-coated and chip sealed after treatment, to provide a fully waterproof, long term, pavement-like wear surface that outperforms any conventional gravel/oil or cold-mix treatments.
