ePAVE IS A COOL PAVEMENT
The term cool pavements refers to innovative materials such as ePAVE that store less heat and have lower surface temperatures than traditional paving products.
Conventional paved surfaces like those in the United States can reach seasonal temperatures of 120°F to 151°F – storing heat below the surface that is released at night as well as warming storm runoff water throughout the day.
These pavements have significantly contributed to urban heat islands and degraded water quality in urban environments across the nation.
A cool pavement such as ePAVE mitigates the creation and effect of urban heat islands and in the process, contributes to healthier air, better water quality, lower energy consumption and greater community health.
