The construction industry has been challenged by design engineers and end users alike to meet a higher standard of quality and durability of pavements. Flex-Tech Resources Ltd. is ready to accept that challenge by providing alternative pavement solutions. By incorporating existing in-place materials and cutting-edge technology, a recycled pavement base can be created providing a long-lasting foundation for the new pavement surface.

Our Company was formed to respond to the growing concern of deteriorating pavements in our region. Our goal is to recycle existing pavements in place and produce a stabilized base-course without the added costs of total removal and replacement.

While foamed asphalt may be a relatively new concept in our region, the process has been performed on many projects in the U.S., Europe, and many other countries. Flex-Tech Resources Ltd. does not hold any proprietary or territorial contracts to perform this process, only the enthusiasm to bring this process to the Ohio region.

Let Flex-Tech show you how we can process your exsiting pavement structure with a form asphalt process that produces a high-quality, cost-efficient base course using liquid asphalt cement without additives or reprocessing.

Flex-Tech can also provide additional stabilized base solutions including emulsion applications and soil modifications to meet even the most challenging site conditions.

Each project is designed and built right the first time.

About Alternative Pavement Techniques

What is foamed asphalt?
Foamed or 'expanded' asphalt is a full-depth, in-place recycling method utilizing liquid asphalt cement and a precisely injected amount of cold water to produce a foam or 'expanded' binder mixture. This binder increases the surface area for bonding with fine aggregates and is incorporated with the existing pulverized aggregates and completely blended. The resulting mix is graded and compacted.

Why foamed asphalt?
Foaming increases the surface area of the asphalt cement considerably and reduces viscosity, making it well suited for mixing with cold aggregates. Foamed asphalt cement can be used with a variety of materials, ranging from conventional high-quality graded materials to recycled pavements.

While foamed asphalt may be relatively new to the Ohio area, the process has been performed successfully on other projects in the U.S., Europe, and many other countries. Flex-Tech Resources Ltd. does not hold any proprietary or terretorial contracts to perform this process, only the enthusiasm to bring it to Ohio and beyond.

What are the environmental advantages of foam asphalt?
Recycling of in-place existing aggregates and pavements reduces the cost of raw materials and natural resources. Utilizing products in-place also reduces energy costs for production and transportation, and reduces the cost of heating asphalt, since the process doesn't uses far less heat than traditional paving. Environmental side effects of evaporation of volatiles are also avoided.
