Asphalt grindings, a.k.a. millings, are materials derived from old pavement and are incredibly environmentally friendly. To prevent the pavement from getting too thick from years of resurfacing and to avoid drainage problems, contractors use grinding equipment to remove the topmost layer of pavement and crush it into fine particles; this allows the material to be reused for other projects at a significantly reduced cost.
Benefits of Asphalt Grindings
The use of asphalt grindings in place of virgin asphalt or other paving materials provides many benefits, such as:
- Comprised of recycled material
- Better for the environment
- Less expensive than other paving materials
- Doesn’t need to be raked or refinished regularly
- Resistant to harsh weather
- Fill potholes
- Hardens over time
Asphalt grindings have many applications in commercial settings and are used as:
- The base for sidewalks or other paving projects,
- Create more permanent walking trails,
- Parking lots,
- And Tennis courts,
- … to name a few.
Why Consider Asphalt Grindings Over Other Materials
1. Significant Cost Reduction
Since asphalt grindings are the pulverized remnants from other asphalt projects, your cost is significantly lower than all new materials.
2. Environmentally Friendlier
Recycling old roadbeds through asphalt grinding is kinder to our environment. Some projects may be eligible for tax incentives and may qualify for LEEDS credits.
3. Weather Resistant
Asphalt grindings are a resilient construction material resistant to snow, ice, and cold temperatures. They increase the life of the pavement significantly.
4. Reduced Maintenance
As asphalt grindings harden over time, they strengthen the surface of your parking lot. Since they don’t need refinishing, they save you money in the long term.
Asphalt grindings RAP (Recycled Asphalt Pavement) have a very beneficial, desirable, and widespread use when used as a surfacing material on low-volume roads. Due to some leaching, it is recommended that this material be applied where there is no direct conveyance of pollutants to water sources.
