POLYMER-MODIFIED COLD ASPHALT
Cold asphalt is a fully prepared for use, modern material! Just poured, leveled,
rammed and that’s all - pavement is ready!
The basis of the chemical composition of cold asphalt is a modified polymer with a set of plasticizing frost-resistant additives.
Special additives used in the manufacture of cold asphalt help to create a protective film that prevents hardening of bitumen during storage of ready mix and destroyed in the air, providing the performance of the material during installation.
The main operational features and advantages of cold asphalt are:
- Possibility of carrying out repairs and use the mixture without heating at low temperatures;
- Ability to use on wet surfaces;
- Possibility of long-term storage;
- Low costs for repair and construction works and the lack of need for heavy road construction equipment.
Unique performance advantages make cold asphalt competitive, and in some cases the only material possible to use to perform road repairs.
Ready -to-use composition, regardless of weather conditions, is poured into the pits and potholes. Frost and rain are not the obstacles. The only condition - before pouring the mixture you must first remove the debris from the pit. Then to start the polymerization process, it is enough to ram cold asphalt with a plate compactor or roll it with truck wheels.
After placing the mixture, as a result of ramming cold asphalt quickly polymerizes and hardens. As a result, the material forms a super-tough durable surface that is resistant to changes in temperature and can withstand large dynamic loads.
- In plastic bags of 20 kg. This amount is sufficient to repair the pit area of 0.3 m² at a depth of 5 cm.
- In "big bags" of up to 500 kg. You can order any necessary weight.
This technology was developed about 10 years ago and successfully implemented in many countries with different weather conditions. France and the USA, Canada and England, Germany and Brazil, China and Norway, Sweden and Iraq, Ukraine and Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands - and this is only a small part of the countries that use this technology.
