CALCIUM CHLORIDE OF USE IN FULL-DEPTH RECYCLING. ASPHALT RECYCLING AND RECLAIMING SPECIAL REPORT

It is described how rebuilding deteriorating roadways by combining full-depth reclamation with liquid calcium chloride can increase a road's load-bearing capacity, with the ability to provide savings in manpower, materials and time. In this process, liquid calcium chloride is sprayed onto a full-depth asphalt road reclaimed base, and penetrates to coat and bind the fines and small particles. This stabilizes the surface and keeps the base dense and compact. Calcium chloride's ability to hold water helps keep the base damp holding particles closely togeher even on the hottest, and driest days. The advantages of the process are pointed out. The details of the use of calcium chloride in full-depth reclamation are described.
