Liberty Tire, Lehigh Technologies sign agreement

Liberty Tire and Lehigh Technologies have signed an agreement to expand the sales and services for Rheopave, a rubber-modified asphalt product that is made from micronized rubber powder that was developed by Lehigh. 

The two companies say that Rheopave offers the North American asphalt industry a superior solution for improving the sustainability, economics and performance of rubber-modified asphalt.Under the agreement, Liberty Tire Recycling, based in Pittsburgh, will provide the sales, service and support for Lehigh Technologies’ Rheopave rubber-modified asphalt systems throughout certain regions in North America.

“Rubberized asphalt is longer lasting, safer, less costly and friendlier to the environment, which aligns with Liberty Tire’s commitment to reclaim, recycle and reuse,” says Doug Carlson, Liberty’s vice president of asphalt products. 

“Partnering with Lehigh to offer sustainable technologies like Rheopave emphasizes both Liberty Tire’s and Lehigh’s pledge to the environment.””Combining our companies’ capabilities enables us to broaden the reach for an important technology,” says Ryan Alleman, sales director for Lehigh. 

“Together, we hope to make Rheopave the performance standard for RMA [rubber-modified asphalt] systems and offer solutions to segments that are currently served only by polymer-modified systems.” Rheopave is a blend of polymers and other components developed by Lehigh, based in Tucker, Georgia, specifically to enhance the performance of rubber powders in RMA [rubber-modified asphalt] systems.
