Full depth reclamation (FDR) consists of pulverizing the asphalt-wearing layer (top) of the road into the base material and evening the sub-base material to depths of up to 300 mm. Emulsified asphalts, fillers, virgin aggregates or recycled asphalt pavements (RAP) can be added to maximize the effectiveness of the system. The process is ideal for increasing the bearing capacity of roads that utilized maintenance techniques such as pothole patching, seal coats, slurry seals and overlays, as well as increased traffic loadings.
