Liberty Tire Recycling Partnering on Rubberized Asphalt System

Liberty Tire Recycling is partnering with specialty materials firm Lehigh Technologies Inc. to make and market a rubber modified asphalt (RMA) system in North America.

Under the agreement Pittsburgh-based Liberty will provide sales, service and support for Rheopave RMA systems in selected regions, according to a news release.

Tucker, Ga.-based Lehigh’s Rheopave additive technology is a blend of polymers and other components designed to enhance the performance of rubber powders in RMA systems.

"Rubberized asphalt is longer lasting, safer, less costly and friendlier to the environment, which aligns with Liberty Tire's commitment to reclaim, recycle and reuse," said Doug Carlson, Liberty vice president of asphalt products. "Partnering with Lehigh to offer sustainable technologies like Rheopave emphasizes both Liberty Tire's and Lehigh's pledge to the environment."
