Full-depth reclamation (FDR) recycles the materials from deteriorated asphalt pavement, and, with the addition of cement, creates a new stabilized base. A surface consisting of a thin bituminous chip seal, hot-mix asphalt, or concrete completes the rebuilt road. The recycled base will be stronger, more uniform, and more moisture resistant than the original base, resulting in a long, low-maintenance life. And most important, recycling costs are normally 25% to 50% less than removal and replacement of the old pavement.
