In the patent application, discarded used automobile tires are ground to powder form and incorporated into bitumens (asphalt or coal tar) by high-shear blending and controlled heating. The blended material is then emulsified to form a water suspension by high-speed stirring, using suitable dispersing chemicals, extenders, fillers, etc., to form a material suitable for use as black top dressing for treatment of driveways, parking lots, highways, etc. The tire rubber content of the resin portion (rubber + bitumen) preferably can vary from 5 to 25 percent.
