Sripath Technologies Makes ReLIXER RAP Rejuvenator
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Sripath Technologies®, Mahwah, New Jersey, manufactures and markets ReLIXER®, an elixir of green bio-based oils, used for the rejuvenation of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) in asphalt mixes and for pavement repair and maintenance applications. ReLIXER® is a user-friendly rejuvenator for use in hot mix applications, allowing for the use of high levels of RAP, to create asphalt mixes for base course, surface wear layers, shoulders, and other roadway paving applications. For pavement maintenance applications, ReLIXER® is added in small doses to bitumen to create rejuvenating emulsions. A ReLIXER® emulsion helps rejuvenate and soften the aged bitumen within the old pavement surfaces, improves the bonding of aggregates to the road surface, for better durability and performance of roadways, according to the manufacturer. ReLIXER® emulsions are designed to be easy to use and incorporate, result in less frequent maintenance, and reduce overall cost for the contractors.
ReLIXER® emulsions are used for a variety of maintenance techniques, such as: chip seal, microesurfacing, slurry seal, scrub seal and fog seal. ReLIXER® emulsions are popular for cold in-place recycling, cold central plant recycling and full depth reclamation applications. For pothole repair applications, ReLIXER® can be mixed with 100% RAP, or with RAP and aggregate, to create either hot patch or cold patch mixes. Such ReLIXER® patch mixes are effective in patching potholes on roadways during off-season months.
