Asphalt zipper pulverizes existing asphalt into reusable material than can be recycled as base or backfill.
According to the company that makes the zipper product, engineers often prefer this recyclable material to new because it grades smoothly and packs tightly.
When the recyclable material is mixed with the base, it provides for a foundation for the new asphalt course.
There are many projects where you can use such a machinery, including standard roads (from www.asphaltzipper.com):
In contrast to traditional method of removing asphalt, the zipper is designed to be less expensive.
In traditional method, the costs incur from activities such as saw cutting, chunking, removing and hauling the asphalt.
