The science behind our
Pavement preservation is the process of applying the right treatment on the right road at the right time to extend the serviceable life and delay costly rehabilitation. One of the most effective pavement preservation treatments is rubberized slurry seal.
Rubberized slurry seal is a preventative pavement maintenance technique that is used to strengthen and extend pavement life. It involves placing a thin, asphalt-like layer of material over the top of pavement surfaces, including public roads, highways and airports. Rubberized slurry seal is a viable solution for roads that are in the early stages of deterioration.
To help preserve the vast network of roads in Southern California PMI created Central Mix REAS (Rubberized Emulsion Aggregate Surfacing) as a pavement preservation tool.

Central Mix REAS
A high quality solution
Central Mix REAS is a blend of asphalt emulsion, polymers, recycled tire rubber, properly graded aggregates, plus stabilizers and performance additives. It is a high quality solution with more asphalt and tire rubber than slurry, providing a more durable and longer lasting material.
Central Mix REAS is sustainable using only recycled waste tires saved from Southern California landfills. During manufacturing and application nearly 0 (zero) waste or pollution is created.
Extends pavement life
Central Mix REAS extends pavement life by protecting it from oxidation, deterioration and water intrusion and provides a durable, all-weather, dust-free and non-bleeding surface.
Not need to reapply for over 5 years
Residents love this material because it causes little inconvenience and will not need to be reapplied for over 5 years if properly applied.
Manufactured at a Central Mix Plant
One of the distinguishing characteristics is that Central Mix REAS is manufactured at a Central Mix Plant where all materials and mixing can be rigorously monitored to ensure consistent and quality material.
Ensure the most effective use of your budget & staff
Whatever your agency’s needs are, PMI will work with you to ensure the most effective use of your budget and staff. Central Mix REAS is delivered in a truck ready to apply and can be operated by PMI, your staff or a contractor.
When and Where to
Use Central Mix REAS
Central Mix REAS will provide the best results when used on a road with minimal distress. The pavement should be in good structural condition, with low severity surface distresses. For areas of higher surface distresses but good structural condition, consider a Thin Overlay Alternative. Proper preparation is the key to any successful project. Central Mix REAS can prolong the serviceable life of the road by over 5 years.
