Key Considerations

Hydrate has been used in asphalt concrete to reduce moisture sensitivity and stripping. Recent studies confirm that hydrated lime offers other important benefits:

  • Stiffens the binder and asphalt to resist rutting;
  • Improves toughness and resistance to fracture growth at low temperatures;
  • Changes oxidation chemistry in the binder to reduce age hardening;
  • Alters clay fines to improve moisture stability and durability.

Your Benefits

All of the above-mentioned properties enhance the durability of asphalt mixtures. Road managers say that hydrated lime increases durability by 25% over the lifetime of asphalt roads, thus reducing the carbon footprint by 23%. Contact us to know more about our hydrated lime, and our expertise.
