Strong Bases, Low Costs With Neoloy® Tough-Cells
Neoloy Tough-Cells create a strong base for high quality roads that last longer at a lower cost. Limited budgets can then be allocated to new construction.
Developing sustainable transportation infrastructure faces challenges of budgets, soils and durability. That’s where Neoloy comes in. Neoloy Tough-Cells create a strong base for high quality roads that last longer at a lower cost. Limited budgets can then be allocated to new construction and maintaining aging infrastructure.
As a sustainable construction method, Neoloy Tough-Cells can use on on-site, marginal and recycled materials for infill to reduce construction costs. This has a ripple effect on by reducing the use of quality aggregate, hauling, and onsite placement and compaction. The high modulus of Neoloy Tough-Cells also enables a reduction in the thickness of the road layers.
At the same time, Neoloy extends the pavement service life, thereby reducing operating expenses and long-term maintenance. And improving road conditions has far-reaching impacts: in addition to reducing greenhouse gas emission, it can help save lives. Improving the conditions of roads can reduce the number of car-related fatalities. Poor road conditions are responsible for roughly one out of three car-related fatalities (US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). Improving the quality of national road systems could save thousands of lives every year.
- Utilize recycled asphalt (RAP) and concrete and other non-cohesive granular fill, such as sand
- High dimensional stability under dynamic loading and thermal cycling
- Very high resistance to environmental conditions, oxidation and UV degradation over time.
- Lower infill qualities and quantities
- Reduce the use of virgin materials and quarrying.
- Reduce haulage and earthmoving equipment
- Decrease fuel use, pollution and the carbon footprint
- Minimize on-site disruption from dust, erosion and runoff.
- Meets sustainable (and LEED) goals of using local, native or recycled materials for infill
- Advanced water management technique by maximizing infiltration in structural layers
- Reduces runoff and flooding, and increases filter of pollutants by the soil.
- Extend service life and reduce repairs
- Lower operational and maintenance costs, as well as total life-cycle costs (Total Cost of Ownership).
- All-weather roads in rural areas of developing regions increase farmers’ ability to get goods to market
- Simple installation lets local work crews receive on-site training and work on project
