CCAP or Cold Constructed Asphalt Pavement is a blend of gelled asphalt and additives that is mixed with pre-approved aggregate through a mobile mixing plant. The ability to blend different aggregate during the mixing process creates a mix for application in various thicknesses. Agencies using this material are finding that pavement costs are reduced as much as 30%.
