Should recycled asphalt be sealed?
Consequently, can asphalt millings be sealed?
As you have found out Asphalt millings are recycled in almost every new asphalt mix that is produced. Not all of the milled asphalt is reused in new asphalt. Airport Grade Driveway sealer is a high performance, asphalt emulsion based low VOC driveway sealer designed to beautify and protect your blacktop driveway.
Secondly, do asphalt millings make a good driveway? Not all of the milled asphalt is reused in new asphalt. Most projects limit millings to no more than 30 percent of the volume of the new mix. There are other uses for millings such as on driveways or on less traveled roads. Loose asphalt millings generally are not good for groundwater runoff or the environment.
Consequently, how long does a recycled asphalt driveway last?
Asphalt driveways typically last 12 to 20 years, depending on the quality of the installation, the climate, the usage they get, and how well they have been maintained. Like most everything else, the better care you take of your asphalt driveway, the longer it will remain in service.
How long does it take for asphalt millings to harden?
about 30 days
