Superstrong
Application

  • Motorways.
  • Trunk roads.
  • Local authority roads for pavement strengthening.
  • Hi load commercial/ industrial areas.

Description

High stiffness, resilient asphalt for base and binder course layers. The product takes advantage of advanced binder and mixture technology to provide a superior loadbearing, impermeable structural layer. Superstrong is effectively an EME2 utilizing a polymer modified hard grade binder to give all the mechanical properties of EME2 but with the enhancement of increased fatigue resistance.

Features:

  • Polymer modified binder for enhanced fatigue resistance.
  • Very high rut resistance.
  • Dense impermeable asphalt for greater resistance to water penetration.
  • Adds strength to pavements.
  • Unlike EME2 it can be laid on top of a conventional Type One sub base.
  • Durability through ease of laying, mat uniformity and low voids.

Applications:

  • Motorways.
  • Trunk roads.
  • Local authority roads for pavement strengthening.
  • Hi load commercial/ industrial areas.
