Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA)
Promotes adhesion between bitumen and aggregates at typical HMA temperatures (140-180ºC). Heat stable in hot bitumen. Can be stored at high temperatures and not lose activity.
Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA)
Can be used with a variety of WMA systems (such as foam and additives) to enhance bitumen-aggregate adhesion at temperatures between (90-140ºC).
Effective when used with Foam-mix systems to extend foam life and improve Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) to bitumen adhesion.
Co-emulsifier for bitumen emulsions
Used to improve stability and storage at higher temperatures, and also provide a more consistent and uniform spray during application of surface dressing binders.
The EN12697-11(C) Boiling Water Stripping Test is an aggressive, objective adhesion test with good precision that can be used across a variety of aggregate types. This test was chosen to show the improvement that Asphix™ makes to an aggregate that is exhibiting considerable stripping during this procedure. These results show that Asphix™ offers at least five times improvement over an untreated sample.
