To slow down the deterioration of the Village's new asphalt pavements
A rejuvenating agents known as “Reclamite” is applied to the surface of previously resurfaced or reconstructed asphalt pavements. Reclamite is a liquid that is applied to the newer and/or less porous pavement surfaces.
These rejuvenating agents help seal the small cracks in the pavement. They also help revitalize the asphalt by replacing some of the liquid ingredients that have evaporated. The loss of the liquids and fine particles in the asphalt that causes the pavement surface to fade and become more brittle. Many of the Village’s streets that initially received Reclamite have held up well enough for a second and third Reclamite application.
