AMES, IA (June 7, 2024) – Asphalt Contractor, the nationally recognized magazine serving asphalt contractors and producers, has named Colorbiotics® Invigorate® additive a Top 30 Editor’s Choice award winner.

Asphalt Contractor’s Top 30 Editor’s Choice award represents the asphalt industry’s best products gaining interest from end-users and asphalt professionals alike. The awarded products, exhibiting innovation and utility, were chosen based on submitted nominations and audience engagement during a 12-month period on, and narrowed down by the editorial team and advisory board.

The Invigorate additive gives contractors the ability to exceed binder specs using high RAP at lower temperatures. In recent Ideal CT and Hamburg testing, Invigorate used with 40% RAP at 270° had similar results as 320° hot mix with lower RAP. These results demonstrate how utilizing Invigorate additive helps you boost RAP, conserve burner fuel and extend the jobs season from early spring to late autumn.

“These products represent some of the newest and most innovative items recently in the market, but some are legacy tools of the trade that have stood the test of time,” said Brandon Noel, Editor, Asphalt Contractor. “What they all have in common is that they push the industry forward, and they serve to enhance the abilities of the men and women who do the hard work every day. Congrats to all of our 2024 Top 30 winners!”
