What is Elastiko® Engineered Crumb Rubber Asphalt?
Elastiko®️ Engineered Crumb Rubber Asphalt ECR is a hot mix, asphaltic-concrete, modifier (NOT liquid binder additive). Over 4 million tons of ECR-modified hot mix has performed impeccably in a wide range of harsh climate and road-use conditions for more than ten years. ECR has assisted the auto manufacturing industry, the Department of Defense, Energy and Interior in effectively reducing both their operating costs and environmental footprint in a wide range of activities.”
There are many benefits that afford to asphalt plants when they use rubber asphalt instead of polymer as a means of modification. Polymer modified asphalt tends to be sticky and hard to process through a plant’s system. As a result, production rates can be much less than if using ECR to modify your mix. Also, there tends to be no build up in conveyors, silos or other plant equipment when using ECR.
