Pavement milling (cold planing, asphalt milling, or profiling) is the process of removing part of the surface of a paved area such as a road, bridge or parking lot. Milling can involve the removal of varied amounts of surface – including from just enough thickness to level and smooth the surface, to full-depth removal.
Full-depth reclamation is a recycling method that pulverizes and blends a deteriorated existing asphalt pavement structure with a predetermined portion of underlying materials, resulting in an upgraded base material. Pavements with base and surface deficiencies, failures, rutting, cracking or irregular profiles are ideal candidates for reclamation.
All our work occurs in-place, recycling 100% of existing materials. This eliminates removal and replacement of materials and truck hauling that are typical with conventional reconstruction methods...expediting construction time. Additional aggregates may be blended to achieve desired base if needed.
Full Depth Reclamation consists of Four Basic Steps:
Pulverizing existing asphalt and underlying base material to a 2" minus product at depths up to 18" providing a uniform gradation.
Blend additional aggregates to achieve desired base as needed.
Shaping and compaction of reclaimed material.
Application of wearing course.
