On the Road to Sustainability

For a century, Edw. C. Levy Co. has been dedicated to reducing waste, minimizing CO2 emissions, and conserving and reusing energy wherever and whenever possible. Duraberm is the embodiment of this philosophy. Duraberm provides the same, if not more strength, while providing the same chemical constituency of other aggregates. It can be used on non-paved roads, for roadway stabilization, parking lot surfaces and driveways.

Duraberm Slag Aggregate:
The Foundation of Today’s Roads

Steel furnace slag is a co-product of the steel making process and Edw. C. Levy Co. reclaims this as a cost-effective and durable aggregate for road building. Duraberm, which is made from steel furnace slag, is a strong and sustainable material that holds up under heavy truck traffic, provides long service life, and helps control project cost.

On the Road to Stability

    • Remove deep pavement cracks and allow for adjustments to the road profile.
    • Conserve energy and preserve the environment.
    • Equivalent to a traditionally reconstructed roadway in terms of life expectancy, wear and load bearing characteristics (Better Roads, 2001).
    • Road can remain open to traffic until final pavement – fewer delays and interruptions to traffic.
    • Reduced cost of construction.
  • Increase stabilization of the road with chemical and mechanical binding properties already included in the slag aggregate

Duraberm Benefits

    • Provides a cost-effective alternative when compared to concrete or asphalt on low-volume roads
    • Duraberm is 100% crushed, which makes harder, more durable unpaved roads
    • Longer life cycle for roads with heavy traffic
    • Duraberm is rough and angular – locks the aggregate together
    • Can provide “cementitious” properties to help stabilize roads
  • Sustainable manufactured aggregate is a greener alternative to crushed rock
