RAP (RECLAIMED ASPHALT PAVEMENT)

Often considered for economic and environmental reasons, RAP refers to ground asphalt which is added back into a virgin asphalt mixture at the mixing plant. Recycled pavements may have different perfor­mance characteristics than conventional mixtures.  Larger contracts today should specify if the use of RAP materials is encouraged, allowed, or not allowed.
