We Extend the Service Life of Asphalt with Bitucal
Foundation stability is not the only key factor for ensuring road durability , the stability of the surface is equally as important. Asphalt paving undoubtedly has advantages over concrete paving, but there are also disadvantages. Its plasticity means that exposure to high loads can leave clear traces, especially at high temperatures. Laboratory tests have shown that incorporating certain types of slaked lime can lead to lasting improvements in the properties of the asphalt. These include:
■ enhanced adhesion between bitumen and rock
■ increased fatigue resistance
■ reduced embrittlement
■ decreased run formation
■ reduced swelling
Modifying asphalt with Bitucal has been shown to increase its service life by 10% to 20%.
Bitucal C® consists of over 90% calcium hydroxide and is notable for its excellent processing and conveying properties in the mixing unit.
