FOURTH ORDER OF BUSINESS Asphalt Rejuvenation Workshop

Vice Chair Reno commented that he had spoken with Connie Lorenz of Asphalt Restoration Technology Systems, and was impressed with her explanation of the asphalt rejuvenation process, which had been applied on the roadways at Stonybrook. He also stated that he had accompanied her on a ride around in Bella Terra, so she could observe the roadways.

He introduced Ms. Lorenz, and she gave a presentation on the asphalt rejuvenation process, which was illustrated in a slideshow. She stated that it had originally been determined that there was a need in the aviation industry to design a surface treatment which would protect the pavement from fuel damage and prevent premature degradation. She explained the development of the technology for the product PDC (Pavement Dressing Conditioner), and how this treatment can also be used in private communities with extensive roadway systems.

Ms. Lorenz explained the causes of asphalt breakdown, including oxidation, and stated that PDC treatment reverses oxidation. She also noted other advantages that result from PDC application. She stated that it requires a 24-hour drying time, has a 3 year warranty, and does not cause any speed limitations on roadways. The Board had questions about the application process and traffic management while this product is being installed.


On MOTION by Supervisor Licht, seconded by Supervisor Meek, with all in favor, the workshop meeting was adjourned at 3:52 p.m.
