ReCharge™

Advanced Cold Mix Recycling Additive for RAP

ReCharge™ is a specially engineered additive system that transforms recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) into a pavement surface capable of accommodating traffic volume shortly after compaction. ReCharge activates aged-asphalt binder and restores its performance without adding heat. The resulting cold mix can be spread onto a surface and compacted similarly to a traditional hot mix asphalt. Within a few hours, the pavement is capable of supporting light traffic.

The latest addition to our ReSet® portfolio of age-regenerating products, ReCharge provides a cost-effective alternative to unpaved (dirt/gravel) roads.

ReCharge transforms RAP into real value, enabling the construction of new roads and ongoing maintenance, including patch/pothole repairs—all using 100% RAP without adding heat.

  • Working with Blacklidge presented opportunities for improvements that had not been previously considered. By mixing milled asphalt with ReCharge, we were able to provide a pavement surface that met all of our needs. The end product has the appearance of a hot mix asphalt surface course and costs a fraction of what a standard overlay costs. We are very pleased with the final product.

  • ReCharge has drastically reduced our production time and simplified our recycled asphalt mix to two materials: asphalt milling and ReCharge. We can now have 1 ton of recycled asphalt loaded on the truck within 30 minutes. It used to take over an hour!
