Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. That’s a phrase that many of us have heard time and again. At RaZphalt™ and Synchor Recycling, it’s a motto we live by and have built our business on. Providing eco-friendly solutions to the Calgary area that allow us to cut down on the amount of recyclable materials sitting in our landfills. Recycled asphalt is one of those materials.
Asphalt is not a biodegradable material; however, it can be re-purposed to make asphalt shingles, and, in our case, to create our recycled asphalt alternative: RaZphalt™. Recycled asphalt is not a new concept. For years it has been an alternative solution to paving. At RaZphalt™ we’ve taken that original concept and, with a special combination of recycled asphalt shingles, binders and additives, we have created an aggregate product that is better than the standard used today.
RaZphalt™ is suitable for several residential applications. It requires minimal maintenance and won’t discolour over time. It’s also a cost-effective solution to traditional gravel or hot mix asphalt driveways. With a gravel parking pad, driveway or pathway, dust control is a big concern. There are ways to eliminate dust from getting into the air, usually involving regular watering or an annual application of calcium chloride. With RaZphalt™ you can save time and money and never have to worry about dust being an issue again. RaZphalt™ driveways can cost as little as $0.50 a square foot.
The application for RaZphalt™ is the same as regular recycled asphalt or hot mix asphalt driveways. Only the equipment is the different. RaZphalt™ can be installed on any gravel surface including family farms, acreages, driveways and walking paths.
RaZphalt™ comes in at a similar price point when compare to other recycled asphalt materials. But with our unique blend of binding properties, RaZphalt™ makes a more compact surface that you can plow in the winter without fear of ruining the surface. RaZphalt™ also sheds water thanks to its waterproof components, which cuts down on potholes and wash boarding. All of these properties leave you with a product designed to last.
