Summary: “PlusRide TM” is a rubber modified plant mixed bituminous wearing course that is advertised as having unique de-icing ability. This product was developed in Sweden and is patented in the U.S. The license to sell this product is held by All Seasons Surfacing Corp. of Bellevue, WA. Rubber ground from old tires is used to replace some of the fine aggregate material in the bituminous mixture. This mixture is advertised to have elastic deformation under wheel loadings that will cause the ice layer to crack. Wind created by passing vehicles is reported to clear the surface.
