What is an Asphalt Millings Rejuvenator?
An asphalt millings rejuvenator serves as a bonding agent for asphalt millings. If the asphalt is gray and oxidized, it has probably lost much of the tar, bitumen, and other elements that help it bind into a strong, durable material.
An asphalt rejuvenator, also known as asphalt millings binder, restores adhesion and helps make the asphalt look like new with a rich, dark color.

Are asphalt millings good for a driveway?
Asphalt millings typically start as municipal roads or parking lots. After several years of use, roads and parking lots are decommissioned, removed, and repaved. The good thing is that the old asphalt is not thrown away. After removal, slabs are grounded into tiny bits and turned into asphalt millings.
But are they good for the driveway? The answer is yes, they are. For starters, they are way cheaper than fresh asphalt. And because they come from recycled asphalt, they are more environmentally friendly. Moreover, if you want a driveway that doesn't require plenty of maintenance, then choose asphalt millings.
