The process of installing asphalt pavement involves both the physical, civil engineering aspects and the crucial chemical components that contribute to its long-term durability. While the proper installation is important for performance, the chemical elements of the pavement play a significant role in its lifespan.
Over time, as the pavement ages, the chemical portions (known as maltenes) start to oxidize and diminish. This oxidation process causes the pavement to lose its ability to bind the aggregate (asphaltenes), making it brittle and less flexible. However, there is a solution to restore these chemical components and enhance the pavement's performance.
The chemical rehabilitation process aims to replenish the pavement's chemical constituents through the use of specialized equipment, products, and procedures. By reintroducing the necessary chemicals, the flexibility and binding capabilities of the pavement can be restored. This process offers additional benefits, such as making the pavement resistant to salt, oil, and fuel, providing a non-slip surface, and protecting it against water infiltration and UV degradation.
Implementing a Pavement Management Plan that includes rehabilitating the pavement every 3-5 years can lead to indefinite pavement life. This approach saves both time and money on annual maintenance and expensive overlays.
