Asphalt Recycling vs. Asphalt Reclaiming

What is asphalt recycling? What is asphalt reclaiming? And what’s better asphalt recycling vs. asphalt reclaiming?

The desire to recycle in the world is no longer a debate, but rather a commonplace necessity. Recycling has become a way of life for the average person. What most people do not realize is that asphalt is one of the most recycled products in the world. The future is here, and the asphalt plants are using recycled asphalt as it has become more and more costly to produce it. For some asphalt professionals, asphalt recycling and asphalt reclaiming are thought to be the same… they are not!

Asphalt Recycling:

Asphalt recycling is when you take previously considered “junk” material whether it was ever compacted or not, including saw cut, chucked, pulverized or milled asphalt, and return it to its original state, back to its original temperature of 350 degrees F, and back to its original consistency. By adding one or more ingredients.

Asphalt Reclaiming:

Asphalt Reclaiming is the process of reheating asphalt, plant mix, or properly stored plant mix that has not been compacted, back to its original temperature of 350 degrees F by means of a heat source in a static hotbox/reclaimer. Without adding any additional ingredients.
