HyRAP®, the 100% Recycled Asphalt Pavement
The road to the future starts here!
Asphalt is already the most recycled product in the world (most roads and parking lots today are constructed with up to 35% recycled asphalt pavement) but we wanted to take this a step further.
Brooks Construction Company, in conjunction with Crowley Chemical Company, Inc. offers HyRAP®, a new pavement product that redefines the standard of recycled materials. Through the use of state of the art technology and advanced quality control, Brooks Construction has developed HyRAP®, a sustainable, totally recycled asphalt pavement material.
HyRAP® has the durability and smoothness of a conventional mix but uses materials milled from old asphalt roads, thereby taking advantage of communities' prior investment in their infrastructure. Meeting local and national performance standards, HyRAP® is chemically indistinguishable from traditional asphalt mixes, providing a cost effective way to provide quality pavement that is environmentally friendly. We at Brooks Construction continue to strive to make ourselves a “Green" company each and every day!
Even after 100 years of successful business operations, the owners, managers and employees of Brooks Construction are not complacent about our company or the industry. We continually create new methods to overcome the obstacles to superior quality, improved productivity and cost effectiveness. Please contact us for more information about HyRAP®.
How Does It Work?
HyRAP begins with used asphalt that has been removed from roads through a milling process. In a sense, we "mine" old roads that are in need of repairs for the materials for new pavement. Then, using a patented process, we rejuvenate the material, renewing its elasticity, adhesion, and workability. The mix now acts like a conventional asphalt material, usable for roads and parking lots. It looks slightly different when it first goes down, but within a year, there's no telling. And for drivers, HyRAP® provides the same smooth, high quality ride that's expected from a Brooks paved project. You can check it out for yourself on Eggeman Road, Hoagland Road, Tyler Street, or Sharon Avenue in Fort Wayne.
