Rabine Paving Paves Its Parking Lot Using Warm Mix Asphalt

Rabine Paving uses warm mix asphalt on a project in Itasca to help maximize parking lot sustainability.

Schaumburg, IL, November 20, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Rabine Paving was excited to pave its first warm mix asphalt project in Itasca this month. Warm mix asphalt is chemically altered for environmental reasons. The chemical allows the pavement to be mixed and laid down at lower temperatures. It is able to reduce temperatures from 50 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit compared to standard asphalt.

Warm mix asphalt requires less fuel and it decreases the amount of greenhouse gasses into the environment. Other benefits include better compaction on the parking lot, the ability to transport mix for a longer amount of time and being able to pave at lower temperatures.

The Rabine Group’s Senior Vice President of Global Engineering, Ryan Laughlin, says, "We consider ourselves leaders in the industry understanding and championing sustainable paving practices. This project represented an opportunity to provide a sustainable alternative to conventional pavement for a client that truly appreciates sustainability and CSR. Warm mix asphalt isn't commonly discussed or specified but provided superior workability in less than optimal working conditions. Our crews were impressed with the quality of the material and pavement despite it being 80 degrees F cooler than conventional asphalt pavement. We look forward to completing more projects using this innovative sustainable solution."

Gallagher Asphalt provided the warm mix asphalt to Rabine Paving from one of their plants in Joliet, IL. The Rabine Group trusts Gallagher Asphalt because they are experts in the industry with 80 years of experience and supply quality asphalt paving mixtures.
