WILMINGTON, June 4, 2015 — The Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, LLC (WBI) and Collaborative Aggregates, LLC announce the commercial availability of Delta S™, an easy-to-use liquid additive that reverses aging and oxidation in reclaimed asphalt for exceptional performance and longevity. Delta S also performs as a warm mix asphalt (WMA) additive, significantly reducing paving temperatures and minimizing energy consumption. 100% worker safe and environmentally friendly, Delta S can be used in any traditional hot mix, recycling, in-place recycling or warm mix asphalt application. Renewably sourced, this plant based solution reduces paving costs by increasing the amount of reclaimed asphalt that can be effectively used while reducing paving temperatures needed for optimal performance.
- Single tank storage for dual purpose WMA and recycled asphalt rejuvenator
- Can be added during any phase of production
- Non-toxic, worker safe and environmentally friendly
- Enables the use of higher ratio RAP and RAS to virgin asphalt and aggregate without affecting pavement performance
- Third-party test data shows comparable performance to virgin asphalt
- Significantly lowers paving temperatures, reducing energy usage and extending paving season
