Creating asphalt pavements that last longer.  PRISM’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber interfuses our patented, tailorable polymer (PTR™) with standard grade asphalts creating binder solutions that meet the needs of your roadways.  Test results are proving that PTR™ will last longer and create more durable asphalt mixes thereby creating a more sustainable future for our roadways.

ADAPTABLE

PTR™ can be tailored to your asphalt so you can make the PG grades you need.

EASILY BLENDED

PTR™ is easily interfused into standard grade asphalts using low shear equipment creating PRISM’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber which is a long-term stabilized binder.

COMPETITIVE PRICING

PTR™ provides benefits similar to current SBS/SBR products at competitive pricing but adds the benefits of carbon black and anti-oxidants to your binder.

SUSTAINABLE

PTR™ is manufactured from 30 mesh ground tire rubber, converting a waste product into a valuable beneficial component for your asphalt materials

PRISM™’s PTR™ Enhanced Asphalt Rubber is a product created by interfusing PTR™ with asphalt binder at a molecular level. When applied to asphalt road construction, PRISM™’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber will dramatically lower carbon emissions, elevate fuel efficiency, allow for significant reduction in road noise, provide significantly longer road surface life, and will potentially save communities millions in tax dollars.

OXIDATION AND OZONE RESISTANCE

Both antioxidants and antiozonants from tires are incorporated into PRISM™’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber thereby protecting our roadways as well

MOLECULAR EFFECT

Protecting asphalt and aggregate all the way to the atomic level

REUSE

All the valuable components from ELTs, including the carbon black, polymers, anti-oxidants and anti-ozonants are reused

ASPHALT BINDER+PTR™ = PRISM™’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber

Innovative, tailorable, sustainable enhanced asphalt binder

57% of all roadways in the US are in less than good condition*

Creating better, longer lasting roads. PRISM™ technologies (32 patents and counting) will help the industry build, and rebuild, more economical and sustainable roads. Because better roads mean stronger communities.

MORE DURABLE ASPHALT BINDERS = LESS ROAD FAILURES AND VEHICLE DAMAGE

Hot mix asphalt roads built with PRISM™’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber will last longer and be more durable than existing asphalt roads. This could save US drivers billions per year.

ROADS THAT REDUCE CARBON EMISSIONS?

PRISM™’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber roads will have reduced running resistance and be smoother – which equals less fuel wasted and reduced carbon footprints.

REDUCE FIRE, FUMES AND ODORS

Use of PTR™ and PRISM™’s PTR™ enhanced asphalt rubber means that agencies can use tire derived rubber in roads in a beneficial manner without odor or air quality complaints from their constituents.
