AkzoNobel WMA Additive Gains Approval in Several States, Canadian Provinces

The number of U.S. states and Canadian provinces allowing the use of Rediset LQ liquid asphalt additive from AkzoNobel as a warm-mix asphalt (WMA) additive or as a liquid anti-stripping agent continues to grow.

Rediset LQ was recently approved for use as a WMA additive in New York and Vermont, as well as by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, whose overall responsibility is to conceive, build, operate and maintain infrastructure critical to the New York/New Jersey region's massive trade and transportation network. In addition, Rediset LQ is now listed as a WMA additive by the North Eastern Asphalt User Producer Group (NEAUPG), whose membership encompasses 11 Northeastern states and the District of Columbia.

Rediset LQ has also earned approval as a WMA additive in several other states, state agencies and programs – including Texas, California, Iowa, Tennessee, Kansas, the Illinois Tollway, and the O’Hare Modernization Program – as well as Canadian provinces such as Ontario and Quebec. Florida and the Canadian province of New Brunswick have been added to the list of U.S. states and Canadian provinces that have approved Rediset LQ initially as an anti-stripping additive.

At this point, Rediset LQ has been approved for use as a WMA additive in many U.S. states, agencies and Canadian provinces and as an anti-stripping agent in several U.S. states and Canadian provinces. And with approval processes underway in the remaining key states and provinces, the use of Rediset LQ in North America promises to keep on spreading.
