Durable, permeable pavement provides flexible application for commercial projects
Porous Pave is a highly porous, durable and flexible surfacing material consisting of recycled rubber, aggregate and a binding agent. The product, used in a number of commercial applications, was showcased last month at Greenbuild 2015 in Washington, D.C.
With 6,300 gallons per hour per square foot permeability, the material is a superior solution for stormwater retention. Every 1,000 square feet of two-inch Porous Pave uses rubber recycled from 300 tires. It is resilient and slip resistant. A pour-in-place material, Porous Pave conforms to any landscape design and installs on grades up to 30 degrees. Using a standard mortar mixer, mixing time is under a minute. Curing time is 24 hours.
