RMC Research & Education Foundation Releases 2nd Edition of the Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots

The RMC Research & Education Foundation is proud to release the 2nd Edition of the Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots. This revised edition builds on the detailed information provided in the 1st edition and adds more project case studies, information on the use of microfibers, details the use of laser screed technologies and includes updated reference documentation. The new edition also provides a simplified approach to identifying the best candidate pavements for an overlay. The 2nd edition was updated by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center (CP Tech Center), who also prepared the original edition, again with the assistance of experts on a Technical Advisory Committee.

“The Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots has been an important educational resource for the industry. The step-by-step guide helps designers and owners understand how to implement overlays for a sustainable, durable and economical parking area. Keeping this guide current with the latest technology and advancements was an easy decision,” said Foundation Chairman Rodney Grogan of Dunn Investment Company.

The digital version of the Guide is available for download for free from the Foundation’s website under What’s New and the Concrete Applications page. Professionally-printed copies will be available for purchase from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association. For those wishing to purchase copies at an initial bulk rate, please contact NRMCA’s Jon Hansen at [email protected] by Friday, June 17th. A short video on how to best use the Concrete Overlay Guide is available from the Foundation’s YouTube page.
