Case Study: Cold Climate Counties Find Success with Warm Mix Additive


Paving Crew in Wright County

Crow Wing and Wright counties in Minnesota are the only two counties in the state that require warm mix asphalt for all of their paving projects. So as those local agencies address road maintenance needs, it calls for a consistent and reliable additive solution to help deliver state and county specifications and contractor density goals. Warm mix asphalt must meet stringent specifications and also enable added benefits. These two MN counties specifically wanted to reduce energy consumption at the plant, work with a bio-based additive for safer handling, reduce premature aging as a result of high mix plant production temperatures, and deliver environmental benefits all while maintaining consistent high performance.
