Asphalt & Wax Innovations (AWI) is a full Performance Graded Asphalt Binder testing laboratory. Our laboratory is equipped to evaluate the strength, stiffness, and ductility of paving materials.
A Brief Overview
Our team provides testing on both Asphalt Binder and Hot Mix Asphalt that enables improvement of the durability, longevity, quality, and cost-effectiveness of the asphalt liquid in your mix design to optimize its performance.
Your resource for innovation.
Our research and development lab is dedicated to following market and research trends. AWI formulates with recycled materials including reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), recycle asphalt shingles (RAS), ground tire rubber (GTR), recycled plastics, among other raw materials to deliver quality performance asphalt products at an economical price.
AWI’s product development focuses on binder modification, tack coat, cold mix asphalt, polymer modified asphalt, as well as products for roofing asphalt modification. Whatever properties you are after, allow our lab to formulate a custom solution for your needs.
Your resource for Quality Control.
AWI is fully equipped with the latest equipment for a full range of laboratory services to meet your asphalt binder testing needs. All our testing procedures to determine the Superpave Performance Grade (PG) of asphalt binders are in accordance with AASHTO M 320 (Standard Specification for Performance-Graded Asphalt Binder).
- Prevent premature failure of a pavement by conducting regular asphalt testing before, during, and after construction to ensure quality control and attain consistency.
- Diagnose a potential liquid asphalt issue by having our testing laboratory evaluate.
- Characterize your RAP, RAS or Virgin Liquids with us to have better control over variability in your paving operation.
- Explore innovative new technologies by having us formulate to your required project Specifications.
