"Rejuvenators penetrate into aged hot
mix asphalt and revitalize it," Ward said.
"When we did the first neighborhood in
Travis County, where Austin is located, the
rejuvenator penetrated down to nearly an
inch, because the pavement was fairly
aged and oxidized," Ward said. "The older
a structural layer is, the further it will penetrate as far as it can."

But rejuvenators are relatively new
in the game, having been introduced in
the 1960s as a pavement preservation
treatment. And generally, pavement management programs don't include asphalt
rejuvenators within their software due to
lack of that knowledge by the program
developers, and due also to established
histories of chip seal or slurry wear
course treatments.
Travis County, Tex., has used maltenebased Reclamite rejuvenator successfully for years, said Don Ward, P.E.,

After rejuvenator placement, light coating
of sand is applied to enhance friction

There's a difference between real rejuvenators and products that make a gray, aged
surface look new again, he said.
"During my tenure with the county we
had lots of experience with that," Ward
said. "If someone had a new product they
wanted us to try out, we'd do a demo with
them. We had products come out that
looked black for a month, and then all of
a sudden, they would start to peel off the
wheel paths. We'd see striations, and a year
later it would be gone."
Ward did his due diligence before first
using Reclamite rejuvenator in Travis
County 14 years ago. "I did extensive
research and traveled to a number of
states to look at products applied," Ward
said. "I was taken aback by how the
product worked. A county in Florida had
15 years of documentation and was able
to demonstrate how millions of dollars had
been saved preserving pavements with
maltene-based rejuvenator."
Likewise, Ward is convinced the rejuvenator saved money for Travis County. "After
years of using it I am totally convinced that
it saved taxpayers big money, and will save
government entities-counties, cities and
states-hundreds of thousands of dollars
in deferred costs alone."
Also, Visalia, Calif., has successfully
used maltene-based rejuvenators in its
pavement preservation program since
about 1990.
The City of Visalia's goal was to maintain
the high street PCIs shown by its pavement management system program with a
lower cost treatment, extending pavement
life by four to five years. Application of an
asphalt emulsion-based rejuvenator has
led to increased PCIs on Visalia streets,
while the city has raised the level of public awareness of pavement preservation
though an in-house media promotion.
