Material to be Applied to Preserve City Streets

Corrective Asphalt Materials

Rejuv Tech will treat pavement with Reclamite

Some Evansville streets will be treated with a material to help preserve the pavement. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The city says RejuvTec Inc. will launch the pavement preservation program on Wednesday.

The material called Reclamite will be applied to Pollack Avenue between Lombard and Green River Road; on Bellemeade between St. Mary’s Drive and Green River; and on Garvin between E. Riverside and Mulberry.

RejuvTec will work from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with traffic control and some lane restrictions.

Reclamite is described as an asphalt rejuvenating emulsion that restores the asphalt pavement back to its proper chemical balance, improves flexibility, eliminates cracking and potholes, reduces road fatigue, and slows the oxidation process.

A truck sprays the pink material on the asphalt surface, changing color in about 15-to-30 minutes.

A light coating of sand is then applied to absorb any left-over material.

During the application process, pets and children should stay off the street.

If residue gets on a vehicle, you’re advised to wash it immediately with soap and water or use a mild solvent remover.
