TRC Release Extreme



From asphalt companies to cities and municipalities there is a need for a cold-weather asphalt release agent that will perform when temperatures drop. As winter nears asphalt companies and paving crews must hustle to get every possible bit of pavement applied before cold weather shuts them down. TRC Release Extreme is formulated to perform in the cold and extend the paving season long after other release agents have called it quits until spring.

Like TRC Release, TRC Release Extreme is an asphalt release agent designed to be sprayed on to the bed of truck boxes, roller tires, and tailgates prior to the introduction of hot mix asphalt (HMA). Without the addition of a release agent the asphalt will cool and stick in the bed of the truck greatly increasing the amount of weight being hauled. The same can be said of roller tires on asphalt working equipment. To perform and operate at optimal efficiency asphalt spreading equipment must be kept clean and not allow the buildup of dried asphalt.

Years ago, diesel fuel was the product of choice for this type of work, but it was deemed unsafe for use as a release agent over 20 years ago. However, you may still find some people who continue to use diesel fuel because of its availability. TRC Release Extreme is an environmentally sound, and very affordable option to harmful diesel fuel. TRC Release Extreme is safe to use on all equipment including, asphalt spreaders, rollers, and asphalt buggies. TRC Release Extreme dilutes with water and will not separate like many other release agents. With TRC Release Extreme, asphalt operations can proceed into the winter months. When most other release agents freeze, TRC Release Extreme continues to perform.

If a good release agent is not utilized daily asphalt buildup occurs making it more difficult to release subsequent loads throughout the day. Eventually, payloads are severely reduced because of the excess buildup. This will lead to decreased volume per haul.

Historically, diesel fuel has been the product of choice to prevent asphalt from sticking to truck beds and equipment. However, most governments and municipalities have enacted strict regulations against the use of diesel fuel for this purpose. TRC Release Extreme offers a cost-effective alternative to use into the winter months with added benefits of safety and affordability.
