About Delta Mist asphalt pavement rejuvenator seal
Collaborative Aggregates LLC is currently nearing the final product development phase with Delta Mist, an asphalt pavement rejuvenator seal. The technology for Delta Mist is Delta S, a plant-based, liquid product utilized to rejuvenate the RAP and RAS binder content of asphalt mix designs produced at asphalt mix plants. Delta S launched in June 2015 as an asphalt rejuvenator and as a warm mix asphalt chemistry product offering formulated by the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry.
Starting in 2016, research scientists at the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry are working with Dr. Jay Bianchini, v.p. of operations at Collaborative Aggregates LLC to develop Delta Mist as a spray applied, topical application to perform as a rejuvenator seal on asphalt pavements.
Delta Mist trial field applications were conducted in Massachusetts during 2016. Pavement monitoring and lab testing was accomplished in 2017. Collaborative Aggregates LLC is contracting with the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) at Auburn University (www.ncat.us) to help finalize the Delta Mist formulation and construction application procedures. NCAT staff is monitoring off-track field application tests and reporting their observations and testing data to Dr. Jay Bianchini.
Final Delta Mist product testing is scheduled to be completed by Collaborative Aggregates LLC in late Summer 2018 with a Delta Mist asphalt pavement rejuvenator seal commercial product launch to follow. Please visit this page for periodic updates to the product development progress of Delta Mist.
