The added asphalt cement decreases the demand for virgin asphalt cement. This has several benefits. Primarily, an economic advantage to the producers of HMA. Our recycled asphalt shingles can immediately be added to the HMA process. HMA requires certain gradations of aggregate. The ceramics in the shingles provide a source of aggregate, reducing the demand for mined aggregate. Certain properties of asphalt pavement have been shown to improve with the addition of RAS. These include rutting and cracking resistance. .It is suspected that the added mineral fillers and organic fibers help reinforce the matrix.
