Using NVI NewRoad® Bead Technology
Build greener, solve field issues,
NewRoad® products are highly engineered and tested formulations of recycled structural polymers designed to increase strength, life, and performance.
Patent-pending proprietary formulations improve performance and consistency, reduce asphalt costs, and enable truly lightweight, high-strength concrete mixtures.
Mission: Green + Affordable
Homes aren't affordable, roads and bridges are decaying. Repurposing waste conserves resources, creates jobs, and solves construction industry supply and cost issues, enabling truly affordable housing, roads that last longer, and cleaner air.
Our mission is to improve lives and create jobs by designing higher-performance, lower-cost construction materials that repurpose environmental waste in sustainable solutions that are easily implemented at the plant or job site.
New Village Initiative Advanced Materials Group’s (NVIAMG) NewRoad® asphalt additives engineered with waste plastic recently reached the five-year milestone of strong in-field performance in some of the nation’s harshest pavement-testing environments.
“We have five years of use with strong results,” says NVIAMG President Mark Beeman. “No failures. No recalls. No tear-outs. No complaints. Five years of real world road and parking lot projects in harsh environments confirm that NewRoad® exceeds customer and industry expectations.”
Highlights of Success
The highlights of those five years have been clear:
NewRoad® contains highly engineered polymers made from post-consumer and post-commercial plastic, adding as much as 50% to a road’s lifespan while helping keep plastics out of the environment.
Longer pavement lifespans mean a chance to lower carbon footprints and the potential to save money.
Standard Hamburg torture tests showed NewRoad® pavement resists rutting and cracking far more than conventional mixes.
The pavement has earned rave reviews even after withstanding the unforgiving, freeze-and-thaw weather of Iowa and Minnesota. NewRoad® also performs well in extreme heat.
A Proven Track Record
NewRoad® has proven itself, over and over, on roads and parking lots.
“This is actual use, not ‘tests’ or ‘trying’ to do the right thing,” Beeman says. “We have patent-pending, real-world, customer-financed applications for state, county, city and five-star commercial accounts. We have proven that you can put engineered plastic in roads, and improve performance and lower costs, if you understand the materials science involved.”
