Porous Pave

Manufactured in the U.S.A., Porous Pave is a pour-in-place permeable paving material. With 27 percent void space, Porous Pave delivers 5,800 gallons per hour per square foot permeability. Made with chips of recycled rubber, it is an eco-friendly, green building product. Porous Pave has been proven in successful installations for a wide variety of permeable pavement applications from Massachusetts to Arizona, California to Florida, Minnesota to Texas, and most points in between.

Superior Permeability: 

  • More void space than permeable pavers, pervious asphalt, pervious concrete – more porosity, more permeability for more rainwater infiltration

  • Smaller installations deliver the same stormwater mitigation as more extensive, and more expensive, installations of other permeable paving materials

  • Reduces the need for other on-site measures (retention ponds, swales) – more site area remains useable

Three Formulations 

  • Porous Pave XL – our strongest, most durable blend of 50 percent recycled rubber chips and 50 percent kiln-dried aggregate, plus a hard  binder, for hard wearing permeable pavement

  • Porous Pave XLS – 100 percent recycled rubber chips with a softer binder for more impact-absorbing permeable surfaces

  • Porous Pave XLB –  like XL, a 50-50 rubber-rock blend mixed with a binder selected for golf course bunker liner applications

Exceptional Strength and Durability 

  • Two inches of XL over a compacted aggregate base can even support low-speed traffic areas, including loading docks

  • Two inches of XLS over a compacted aggregate base for pool decks, splash pads, play areas

  • One inch of XLB directly on golf course bunker floors guards them for years with a solid, seamless liner

  • Endures freeze-thaw cycles, frost and ground movement – no heaving, no cracking

Excellent Traction 

  • ADA compliant

  • Safe and slip-resistant – even when wet

  • No puddles – even in low areas, even during and after heavy rains

  • After snow removal, residual water permeates down – no freezing, no ice

Unmatched Versatility 

  • Endless applications – even installs on steep grades up to 30 degrees

  • As a topcoat, covers and bonds with old concrete, asphalt, brick, tile, and wood surfaces – eliminates the cost, disruption, and waste of tear-outs

  • Pour-in-place flexibility to conform to curves, express designs

  • Eight standard colors, multiple custom color mixes

Low-impact Installation 

  • Mix on site, pour in place without extensive excavation, or sub-grade prep – takes half the time to install as brick pavers

  • Applied as a single monolithic pour – no expansion strips

  • Sets up fast – cures in as little as 24 hours

  • Low-impact installation, no big trucks, no heavy equipment – minimal site disruption, reduced risk of damage to landscapes  

Environmentally Friendly 

  • Best Management Practice (BMP) to retain and infiltrate stormwater

  • Decreases the volume, slows the velocity of runoff

  • Reduces erosion

  • Made with rubber recycled from scrap tires – every 1,000 square feet of two-inch Porous Pave removes over 4,000 LB of old tires from the waste stream
