Testing proves Petraviam is stronger than asphalt
Petraviam stands up to a pounding, wet or dry, exceeding asphalt specifications. Petraviam hired a third party engineering firm to test three of our surfaces, our oldest 11-year old site, and two more. They told us just how exceptional Petraviam paving was.
Rain can bring an unpaved logistics or turnaround yard to stop. Watch this video to see how Outlander runs smoothly with Petraviam, rain or shine.
States and municipalities are moving to unpaved roads to contain costs and improve the environment. As reported in Wired Magazine1, 27 states have made the move.
By un-paving instead of repaving, the city of Montpelier, Vermont, saved about $120,000—a big chunk for a city whose annual budget for street building and repairs was $1.3 million.
Plus, using materials like cement are expensive and environmentally unfriendly, the cement industry is a huge producer of the green house gas, carbon dioxide — responsible for about 5 percent of all global emissions. 2
Asphalt is harmful as well as it contains Volatile Organic Compounds such as benzene, and other known carcinogens. Coal tar, used in many surfacing applications is actually even more hazardous to the environment and ultimately our health.
Water is a powerful force. For roads, facilities parking and infrastructure, erosion caused by water can destroy natural gravel roads and surfaces such as asphalt and chip seal, creating potholes and worse yet, wash outs that make it impossible for repair personnel to restore services after severe weather. Watch how Petraviam creates an impervious surface that repels water, yet maintains a high traction environment.
