FULL DEPTH RECLAMATION

Full-Depth Reclamation is the most cost effective and the most environmentally friendly road recycling tool. Roadway Management’s road reclamation system is a product with the greatest lifetime expectancy of all other road recycling methods.

Full-depth reclamation is a pavement rehabilitation technique that will provide the highest structural number of any recycling technique. The full pavement section and a predetermined portion of the underlying materials are uniformly crushed, pulverized or blended, resulting in a stabilized base course; further stabilization is obtained through the injection of asphalt emulsion. The final result is the highest structural number of any recycling technique.

Full-depth reclamation is distinguished from other road rehabilitation techniques like Cold In-Place Recycling or Hot In-Place Recycling by the fact that the cutting head always penetrates completely through the asphalt section into the underlying base layers.

The road reclaimer injects asphalt emulsion as a stabilizing agent to establish a sufficiently strong base. The stabilized material is shaped, compacted and rolled. The final step is wearing course application. The full-depth reclamation process is fast and cost effective with minimal traffic interruption.
