Four and one-half years of extensive research and development have gone into developing the process. . The uniqueness of the technology can be identified very simply. The process is the only one that uses 100% of an asphalt shingle and the entire process is considered to be a “cold” process. There are three main components to the process
R-Three Technologies produces interlocking asphalt bricks by recycling 100% of an asphalt shingle. The Company will have the ability to produce product in virtually any size, shape and color. Additional end products are being investigated and considered. These include sound barrier panels for deadening road noise, cushioned floors for stables and factories as well as landscaping and architectural ties for the consumer market. The Company’s bricks compare favorably to asphalt and concrete in many applications including patios, walkways, driveways, pool decks and other landscaping needs. Because the Company is paid for its raw material, the Company utilizes distinct competitive pricing advantages.
R-Three Technologies’ products have a variety of advantages over their competition. A typical 6″ x 12″ x 2″ brick weighs about six pounds – half the weight of a similar concrete brick. The lighter weight reduces transportation and handling costs. The bricks are non-porous and therefore will repel water and oil allowing them to retain their character and appearance.
Installation is possible with ordinary tools, unlike concrete products where masonry equipment is needed for installation. Versatility of the end product and the fact that it is made of 100% recycled material, has no chemical or toxic additives and is manufactured without depleting natural resources, has an appeal in today’s environmentally conscious market
We must appreciate the proprietary nature of technology; hence, it took years of development and substantial capital to developed the process for commercial application, and to the stage of patent application. R-Three Technologies will be the only company using 100% used, of spec asphalt shingles.
