Resists cracking and rutting.
Cracks in asphalt are caused by vertical or horizontal movements beneath the overlay as a result of traffic loads, temperature fluctuations, and shifting earth. Rubberized asphalt reduces the occurrence of cracking with superior elasticity. Rubberized asphalt is also stiffer than conventional paving, which resists rutting and increases pavement life.

Improves skid resistance. Decreases splash and spray.
The safety of rubberized asphalt is greatly improved as a result of several unique attributes. Pavements made from rubberized asphalt exhibit greater skid resistance, and decreased splash and spray in wet conditions.

Decreases maintenance costs. Requires no additional capital investment.
In use for more than 40 years, rubberized asphalt is laid using the same equipment as traditional asphalt in most cases and the longer lasting properties reduce long-term maintenance costs. Plus, utilizing recycled rubber derived from scrap tires provides a reliable and consistent supply of material.

Rides quieter. Reduces stockpiles of scrap tires.
Noise pollution on highways and interstates continues to increase as traffic levels increase. However, rubberized asphalt is proven to reduce noise levels by upwards of 5 decibels. And rubberized asphalt provides an outlet for between 500 and 2,000 scrap tires per lane mile of pavement. So, for a 1-mile section of a four-lane highway, between 2,000 and 8,000 tires are creating a longer-lasting, safer, and more cost-effective roadway.

Liberty Tire Recycling is at the forefront of a growing trend in the marketplace.

The recycled rubber that we produce is being transformed into a wide variety of products that promote safety and represent ingenuity. You can find them in places such as professional sports stadiums and in children’s playgrounds.

These products are not only innovative. They’re safe, too. The evidence is clear and convincing.

As many as 50 studies conducted on the state, national and global levels have reached the same conclusion... Crumb rubber used in artificial turf or as a playground surface poses no significant health or environmental risk.
